It appears that cracked games hosted on PirateBay and related torrent trackers contain malware executables.
We at SensorsTechForum have received reports from users that have downloaded games such as Overcooked 2 and Battlefield V and had their computer systems infected with the GandCrab v5.0.4 ransomware cryptovirus. Beware of torrent trackers and cracked video games as they may very well yield various malware, especially dangerous viruses like GandCrab.

You can read more information about the GandCrab v5.0.4 threat from the link below:

If you have been infected like that or via other ways and other malware - share your story below.

True, but maybe the crack promised to unlock premium content in Multiplayer. To me, downloading any cracks is always a bad idea...

Just don't download from any PirateBay domain - they were infected with a script that places malicious files and viruses into torrents and there were a few news articles about that this year.
