FSLabs A320 Installer includes a malware, Chrome Password Extraction Tool

Nowadays, flight simulators are becoming quite popular as players would love to get in touch with the same situation as the pilot in real life or want to educate themselves for their better future. Well, it appears that the fun has choked after a bad decision from the developers. For whatever reason, Flight Sim Labs, as a developer, has decided to include a Chrome Password Extraction Tool, for which they remain quiet.

A recently created thread on Reddit by user crankyrecursion, have widely opened the current situation over the included malware. No one knows the reason behind this, as the FSlabs moderator’s team on Reddit has allowed the post to appear, without any thought on removing.

As a moderator I want to address the piracy reports this post is receiving.

Normally I would remove any offending posts and/or comments that, in any way, indicate or promote piracy. However, given the nature of the post and the information within it I have decided to leave them up. It is my opinion (and I’m certain the other mods would agree) that this information is of great benefit to the community and for that reason all further reports will be ignored.

If anyone has any questions about the no piracy rule, or the decision to leave this post up in contrary to that rule, please send the mod team a message via modmail.

It appears that the trouble has just begun for Flight Sim Labs, and their A320 model is much likely to be boycotted by the whole community.

I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR.
