Yeah that's gonna piss a lot of people off.
Git gud as in, git gud and stop installing malware/suspicious shit from torrent websites/forums.
If you get a malware that locks you out of your shit, literally git gud because if you would have been gud you wouldn't have downloaded that shit in the first place.
I guess the correct term in this case would be "get smart" or "git less retarded"

Shit, why didn't I think of this???
Sorry i just had a hard time reading your initial post I guess.
Yeah getting gud at not being an idiot downloading shit should be the first thing anyone does on a computer before they are allowed to use one on their own.
I think it's a good way to target OS-illiterates that have enough to lose to not want to reformat. The manchildren are probably more likely to spend what incomes they manage to have on useless shit too.
>steal malware code & claim it as your own
>give it a nice shiny GUI and make it more "user friendly"
>charge victims 20% more than equivalent competing malware because "high quality experience" and it "just works"
Brb, becoming apple malware equivalent
Yet another ransomware, except this one doesn't target anything truly valuable.
And those it does target, just teaches kids a valuable lesson, that they should actually learn how to use their computer and educate themselves before they download "xXxÜberHaxorxxX.exe" off "hackingDota2&LoL.com"
Are you sure YOU are on the right board?
So some dumb cunts are gonna lose their custom textures and ebin gmod saves because they click on fucking popups
The gene pool always needs more chlorine when the average joe is shitting in the pool and drinking the water.
>Not backing up your saves and user content
I keep an encrypted external HDD for this. All I'd have to do is reformat and copy my files from back-ups.
I don't keep the external HDD connected 24/7, so it's not like it would be affected.
It's not like they're a bank or anything. Things like these happen. You're just not likely to hear them.
The most evil viruses do their job over a long period, affecting your backups as well. Good luck with those.
So the people writing the ransomware are in it for the long run?
You really think they're going to wait long enough to do things subtly?
Even if they did, I bet it would all happen must faster than they expected just like in Office Space.
who the shit cares
>unity, and rpg maker and probably other giant pieces of shit are being targeted
do you expect me to feel bad about those shitty paint programs being targeted? anyone who uses them deserves to have their shit wrecked anyway... not that they didn't already for being stupid enough to download malware
>not backing up your save files locally or on steam servers
people do that?
I hope by abbreviating git gud as GG you're not trying to equate it to "good game" which people say at the end of pvp matches
if so I'm glad I don't do multiplayer gaymen anymore
by the definition of vm it couldn't do anything to break out or else someone has massively fucked up along the lines
the only reason vm is mentioned is that if it is a vm there's an easy exploit they can use to infect windows vm's
>by the definition of vm it couldn't do anything to break out or else someone has massively fucked up along the lines
It's an actual thing.
this probably isn't 100% since RPG maker was never technically free (just translated and distrubuted as such to all the known world since 2000)
but those are all free game dev engines right?
its like you can almost see who wrote the code...(being non free engines.) thats my guess anyway, weird fucking vibes over here.
