Can my computer get viruses from playing online computer games?
I’m considering buying a MMORPG, such as World Of Warcraft or Guild Wars, and I wanted to know if there were any dangers such as viruses or spyware that I could get by playing these games.
Not big name game like WoW or Guild Wars. The spyware that comes from online games is usually from "free sites" that does not have a subscription. Most common are card games or online casinos run by unknown companies. (For instance, playing yahoo games is safe).
