Hacking Hearthstone May Hurt Your PC

The use of third-party Hearthstone tools has seen an increase amongst popular streamers, but technology company, Symantec has released new research warning players against downloading unauthorised programs to hack the game.

These applications (via. GameSpot) include cheating and deck-tracking tools. Hearthstone Hack Tool v2.1, a tool that promises the player more gold and dust, was highlighted by Symantec as a “total scam” and containing malware that steals the player’s Bitcoin.

A program known as Hearthbuddy was additionally warned against. The application is a bot that can play in Hearthstone’s Arena Mode to earn rewards, and respond to emotes. However, the program can cause damage to a user’s PC upon installation.

Unofficial and unsupported Hearthstone tools were named by Symantec as vulnerable to malware. Whilst downloadable deck-tracking programs can help users to identify which cards in their deck remain undrawn, the technology company warns that these programs can contain malicious add-ons capable of logging keystrokes and stealing passwords.
