However, Activision security researchers found out that a this tool is actually malware. The application can be used by hackers to install and download undesirable softwares.

According to the researchers, "when it comes down to it, the dependencies for a 'genuine' cheat to work are the same as those needed by most malware tools to successfully execute. System protections need to be bypassed or disabled, and privileges need to be escalated to allow the program to run correctly and/or establish persistence."
