Goldfarming By Trojan

I’ve been reading a couple of articles about a student named Wang Yue Si. It seems he was busted after earning 1.3 million dollars by selling World of Warcraft items.

The suggestion in these articles is that he could have used a virus (W32/HLLP.Philis.bq) that installs a trojan which would allow him to grab MMORPG passwords in order to steal characters, money and items. Even if it is not true in this case, it will happen sooner or later – mark my words. We had one machine here at work get this virus, so it is making it’s way around.

Be careful out there…

I own this little MMO gaming blog but I hardly ever write on it any more. I’m more of a bloglord or something. Thankfully I have several minions to keep things rolling along.
