Video game cheats, mods, and peripheral software have long been popular ways to distribute malware. Users frequently ignore warnings about the software being unsigned, and they often extend privileges to installers and executable files under the assumption that they must do so in order for the software to work. That allows the malware to get deep into users\’ systems. I don\’t condone cheating, but many mods and peripheral software are legitimate. If you want to download third-party stuff for a game, I recommend sticking to open source. You can often get well-maintained and audited builds of the software you want directly from Github, where anyone can inspect the code. Although this is not a foolproof way to avoid malware, it will drastically reduce the chances of getting infected.  Unless you really trust the Youtuber, avoid clicking on links in Youtube descriptions.
