Se estima que poco más del 10% de los jugadores de PC, es decir unos 179 millones de jugadores, fueron víctima de robo de identidad, lo cual representa pérdidas millonarias si se tiene en cuenta el valor que tienen esas cuentas.

¿Cómo se calcula el valor de una cuenta de Steam, la popular plataforma de videojuegos? La descarga de Steam es gratuita, lo que se abonan son los juegos que se descargan. Así que cuantos más títulos se hayan bajado en un perfil, más valioso será. Existen sitios web de terceros que pueden evaluar el valor de la biblioteca de juegos utilizando algoritmos.

Según datos de SteamCalculator el valor de una cuenta de Steam es, en promedio, de USD 1.936 y la cantidad promedio de juegos que poseen los usuarios de Steam es 120. De ahí se calcula que el robo de 179 millones de cuentas implicaría pérdidas por USD 347 mil millones en todo el mundo.

Esta nueva investigación, encargada por la empresa de ciberseguridad, fue realizada por la consultora Savanta en noviembre de 2020 con el objetivo de analizar el estado actual de los gamers a nivel global.

Según los 5.031 jugadores encuestados en 17 países, casi una quinta parte (19%) también fue víctima de acoso mientras jugaba. Esta tendencia es más frecuente en Rusia (44%), Turquía (28%), Arabia Saudita (27%) y Estados Unidos (27%).

Además del bullying o acoso, un tercio (33%) de los jugadores padeció a jugadores tramposos. Todas estas cuestiones generan estrés y ansiedad en el 31% de los gamers, según se detalla en el informe.

¿Cómo prevenir esto?

1. Comprar en fuentes oficiales. Sólo se deben comprar juegos de PC en plataformas conocidas, como Steam y GOG, o en sitios oficiales de programadores. Evitar ingresar a tiendas desconocidas o descargar por medio de enlaces cuya procedencia se desconozca.

2. Confirmar siempre los grandes descuentos. Las tiendas oficiales a menudo ofrecen buenos descuentos o, incluso, juegos gratis. Pero muchas ofertas por correo electrónico pueden ser una estafa. Por eso se sugiere ir directo al sitio web de los programadores o de la tienda para ver si el descuento realmente existe.

3. Consultar la política de devoluciones. Antes de comprar, es importante informarse sobre las condiciones de devolución de la tienda, en caso de que se quiera devolver algún juego por el motivo que fuese.

4. Utilizar una conexión segura. Aquí hay que tomar medidas para asegurar la red doméstica protegiendo el router con una contraseña segura. También se aconseja utilizar una VPN.

5. Proteger las cuentas. Esto vale para las cuentas en Steam o cualquier plataforma de juego así como en los correos electrónicos o redes sociales. Utilizar una contraseña segura y activar el segundo factor de autenticación. Evitar usar la misma clave para todas las cuentas porque si se devela el password de una cuenta por medio de alguna filtración y se usó esa misma combinación en todos los perfiles, entonces los cibercriminales tendrán acceso irrestricto a todo. De todos modos esto no debería ocurrir si se activó el segundo factor de autenticación en todas las cuentas.

6. Proteger los dispositivos. Para hacerlo es fundamental mantener el sistema operativo actualizado de todos los equipos ya que con cada actualización llegan correcciones y parches de seguridad que lo protegerán de las vulnerabilidades halladas y reportadas hasta la fecha. También es recomendable contar con una herramienta de seguridad para proteger todos los dispositivos.

  1. 💡I received the small hair circle. It looked quite small at first, but it became very fluffy after a little pull. The color is very close to my own hair color, and it is not a wig. This kind of ball hair ring is really a savior for girls with low hair volume, satisfied~~

  22. Admiring the commitment you put into your site and detailed information you provide.
    It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while
    that isn’t the same old rehashed material. Fantastic read!

    with a few % to force the message house a little
    bit, however instead of that, that is magnificent blog.

    A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  31. I have to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing this blog.
    I’m hoping to view the same high-grade content by you later on as well.

    In fact, your creative writing abilities has motivated me to get my own, personal
    site now 😉

  32. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing problems with
    your site. It appears like some of the text within your posts are
    running off the screen. Can someone else please provide
    feedback and let me know if this is happening to
    them too? This may be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Many thanks

  33. Having read this I believed it was really informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this informative article together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worth it!

  34. Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  35. Hi would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re working with?

    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet
    browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it! ps4 games https://j.mp/3nkdKIi ps4 games

  36. You are so cool! I do not believe I have read anything
    like this before. So great to find someone with some genuine thoughts
    on this subject. Really.. many thanks for starting this up.
    This web site is something that is needed on the internet, someone with a
    bit of originality!

  37. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative
    and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the
    nail on the head. The problem is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.

    Now i’m very happy that I came across this in my search for
    something concerning this.

  38. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I
    figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great
    though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Cheers
