You Get What You Pay For

Fake Game Installer Punishes Pirates Via Epic Privacy Breach

This is brilliant! If one downloads this game via a torrent, then goes to install, the "virus/trojan" then acts like the game asking for user information. It then posts this information to a public website, along with pictures of the desktop! To get their information removed, the pirates have to offer a public apology and promise not to do it again.

Wow, even though I have absolutely no desire to play this game, I may just buy it to support these guys.
