Malware menaces Minecraft mods


If you, or your kids, are fans of Minecraft - you might be wise not to download any new mods of plugins for a while.

Computer security researchers say that they have uncovered that cybercriminals have succeeded in embedding malware named "Fracturizer" within packages and plugins used to modify the behaviour and appearance of the phenomenally popular game.

As Bleeping Computer reports, hackers compromised accounts at modding platforms CurseForge and Bukkit to inject Fracturizer into a number of widely-used plugins for the game.

Plugins with similar malware have reportedly been found as early as mid-April 2023.

Minecraft players who have never gone near mods have nothing to fear, but others may be wise to scan their computers for malware in order to ensure that their personal data is not at risk.
