Re: Learn from https

Whether or not the connection is encrypted doesn't help here. An HTTPS connection to a C&C server is just as bad: worse, actually, since the traffic can't be sniffed easily.

In any event, if the game needed network access to begin with (for legitimate updates and content downloads), that would easily disguise the malware download.
