HackTool.CheatEngine

Short Bio

Hack tools are a special kind of riskware. Riskware, in general, is a detection for items that are not strictly malicious, but pose some sort of risk for the user in another way.

HackTool.CheatEngine is a detection for CE (CheatEngine) trainers, which are files that give you an advantage while playing a game. Using these files is usually a breach against the terms of service (ToS) and could get you banned from playing.

Remediation

Malwarebytes can remove this riskware¬†without further user interaction. Should users wish to keep it, they can add the detections to the exclusions list. Here’s how to do it.
