Trojan program hijacks World of Warcraft accounts
Trojan program hijacks World of Warcraft accounts despite two-factor authentication
A new Trojan program is targeting users of the popular online role-playing game World of Warcraft and is capable of hijacking accounts even if their owners use two-factor authentication.
“We’ve been receiving reports regarding a dangerous Trojan that is being used to compromise players’ accounts even if they are using an authenticator for protection,” a technical support representative from Blizzard Entertainment, the game’s developer, said Friday in a message on the Battle.net forums. “The Trojan acts in real time to do this by stealing both your account information and the authenticator password at the time you enter them.”
In a later update on the Battle.net forum, another Blizzard tech support representative said that the company tracked down the source of infection to a fake, but working Curse Client distributed from a fake website. The Curse Client is a third-party application that can be used to install add-ons and modifications for several games including World of Warcraft.
