Trophies unlocking for incorrect games
From about November 2014 to February 2015 (PS4 system software 2.02 to 2.04), there was a glitch in the PS4 system software that caused players to sometimes earn trophies for an incorrect game if two games were installed at the same time. For example, upon completing a task that should earn a player a trophy in Far Cry 4, they might have instead earned a trophy in Grand Theft Auto 5 if they installed those games at the same time.
