The Cyberpunk 2077 mobile application that’s being circulated over the internet is clearly malware. To gather user’s attention the developers of the Cyberpunk 2077 Mobile game even created a website that imitates the Google Play Store.
Furthermore, if you, unfortunately, land on this website you can see several reviews confirming that the game is legit and it’s in the beta stage. After downloading the application you end up installing CoderWare ransomware.
