These map uses the same file/directory name as the originally map and displays an identical map preview. The small size of the map and nowadays fast connections the trojan and viruses downloading process ends when you enter in the game lobby, So its hard to detect these Harmful and dangerous versions.How to detect these Viruses:-
There is only a single way to detect these virus/trojan maps is to delete all the maps from the download folder and keep Only Dota map when joining a game if there's a new file written into the foldar it will probably the fake map (containing virus and trojans).How to avoid these viruses:-
