humble bundle happy hour? Unhappy malware

humble bundle employs GameSessions DRM for its “happy” hour, the exact opposite of what we have come to expect from the Humble Bundle experience.

 whilst the DRM ensures publishers are happy to let us supply gamers with their latest and greatest games for free.

Take a moment to flood-ask them about their evil drm then submit these malware samples to helpers like avast.

Keep an eye out for “special offers” inside the game.  This smacks of the “open” candy malware fiasco.

During the trial, we use in-game messaging to show hints and tips to help you get the most out of the game, as well as the chance to provide feedback [which break screen capture]

GameSessions is less than forthcoming about how this strong drm works, at what non-monetary cost to the user, or the sketchy malware seeming inclusions in trials.  Beware: GameSessions uses blink links as affiliate URLs [to humble bundle].  Be sure to wipe cookies prior to HB purchase.  Death to affiliate urls.
