Crime Moves to Virtual Worlds
An interesting item from Collision Detection: PWSteal.Wowcraft is a new password-stealing Trojan horse that attempts to steal the password to the “World of Warcraft” game and send it to the creator of the Trojan. The idea is that the thief assumes your identity, moves your stuff to his account and then sells it on eBay. The site also links to counterfeiting cases and an online mugging. Also, there’s a link to an article on game economies.
