Question on BlueStacks - PC and Malaware

Post by Hermetika666 » Wed Feb 27, 2019 11:10 pm

Dear Community - Might be a dumb question but is a question at least that I currently have.

If I install an Android apk with potentian malaware by using BlueStacks in my Windows PC, would the PC be damaged somehow or it will affect just the Bluesacks environment considering its an emulator? Glad to know your thoughts. Thanks! & happy sharing! ;)

Nothing will happen to PC.
Unless it's specifically targeting BlueStack and manipulating pc files which BlueStack allow to access on, like public directories.
This is rare of rare case scenario that this will happen.
Other than that no.

Best regards 👍
