    I have a fresh wipe pc with no info that I use for hacking in games, one of the hacks has a info stealing Trojan attached to it. If I remove the Trojan I remove the game hacks so I don’t want to remove it. Basically, if I have no info to steal, is it safe to use the compromised PC on the same network as my main PC? Is there a risk that my main PC can become compromised aswell?

    If they get a foothold on your network, then they are in your network. They can listen to all traffic, scan devices and attempt to get into your other machines.

    What you’d need is a different network or maybe a VLAN.

    However, the better advice that I’ll give is. Don’t download cheats for games, especially with trojans in. Just play the game in the designed way and enjoy it.

    Highly unlikely. Make sure your user/pass are different and the compromised PC has no access to the main PC (network shares etc). Most trojans don’t actively look to infect other PC’s without human interaction.
