World of Warcraft users warned of malware that steals account, authenticator data

Quote:
World of Warcraft players are being advised to be vigilant of a "dangerous Trojan" that could potentially compromise their accounts, even if they are using a Battle.net authenticator to protect themselves.

According to a post on Blizzard's support forum, the reported malware acts in real time by "stealing both your account information and the authenticator password at the time you enter them." Both the mobile and physical Battle.net authenticator are identified as at-risk.
