Cyber espionage campaign uses professionally-made malware

Quote:
Trend Micro researchers have discovered a new, massive cyber espionage campaign that has been hitting as many as 71 victims each day, including government ministries, technology companies, academic research institutions, nongovernmental organizations and media outlets.

I didn't say that there's no hacking in online games. Most of the hacking is for gaining advantage in the game, auto-aim, wall-hack, etc., and not aimed at the gamers' PC. Is it possible to hack the gamer's PC while it's playing online game? Sure... Is it worth doing it? It's a crapshoot at best...

My reference of "hackers' web" was related to the Trend Micro's report indicated hackers...
