Submission + - MechWarrior 4 bittorrent Infected with Trojan 4

societyofrobots writes: Yesterday I saw on the MekTek site that users were reporting the MechWarrior 4 game was infected with a virus and causing 'data loss'. MekTek theorized it was a false alarm.

Today Norton AV started detecting various instances/names of this trojan in various locations on my laptop:

Scanning MW4Mercs.exe revealed the same trojan, verifying the bittorrent is in fact infected with a trojan. uTorrent detected over 7000 people downloading the game within the first 3 days, so thats quite a lot of infections . . .
