World of Warcraft Key Logger Trojan Gains Access to Users Accounts

March 5, 2010, By Atul Roach

World of Warcraft, the Multi Player Role Playing Game from Activision has been in the thick of things lately with Activision Blizzard mentioning that the WoW franchisee was risky, while the artist Wei Wang is getting ready to celebrate WoW 5th anniversary with his mosaic.

The latest related development is that World of Warcarft is under a Trojan attack from hackers and the Key Logger Trojan manages to breach the Blizzard Authenticator system.

In layman terms, the Trojan attack helps a hacker to gain access to user accounts by intercepting the authentication code generated by the Blizzard authenticator.

The Trojan serves a dual purpose where it steals the valid code of a user trying to log in and it also supplies a false code to the Blizzard authenticator which fails the login attempt. Where a registered user cannot log-in to his account through the authenticator, the hacker manages to gain access into a hacked users account directly.

The reported problem is bothering Windows users and the immediate solution is to look for a file named emcor.dll in C:\Users\(Your user name)\AppData\Temp. The other alternative of-course is to upgrade your ant-virus software and gain protection against such harmful Trojan attacks. [via: Geeky-Gadgets]
