Game Removed From Steam Marketplace Due To Accusations Of Deception
Valve Corporation has removed a game from its video game marketplace Steam that allegedly hijacked users’ computers to mine cryptocurrency, Motherboard reported July 30.
The Steam game store has delisted Abstractism, an indie game accused of deceptive practices and cryptojacking, and has banned its developer from the platform.
Steam took action following complaints from a number of users saying that the game setup file seemed to include a Trojan virus and malware disguised as steam.exe processes and launcher.
Game developer Okalo Union and publisher dead.team released Abstractism on Steam on March 15.
However, in December last year Steam stopped acceptance of BTC payments due to high fees and volatility.
