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.GameCrack is the detection for files that make it possible for certain games to run that normally won’t due to certain controls, such as a DRM.


Malwarebytes can remove HackTool.GameCrack 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. However, be warned that if not removed, the program may remain potentially dangerous.
