Avanan, a Check Point Company, have taken a deep dive into hackers installing a self-executing program in Windows via a legitimate scripting engine in Roblox, one of the world’s most popular game systems with millions of daily active users.

In this attack, hackers exploit Roblox’s scripting engine to insert three malicious files: a backdoor trojan to potentially break applications, corrupt or remove data, or send information back to the hacker. The report goes into a lot of detail and offers some recommendations to allow you to protect yourself.

The report can be found here and it’s very much worth a read.
