Chinese malware attacks WoW community
« on: 01. October 2008., 10:43:03 »


I realize this might not be new to the WoW community, but there are obvious threats out there that need some attention.  Recently the team here at Facetime Security Labs has seen one threat in particular that we feel is especially evil.  The story begins like most of these stories begin; with someone downloading something without scanning for a virus first.

There are about 10 million players on World of Warcraft - most of which are in China.  The amount of malware coming out of China in the last several years has been staggering.  Its no surprise really that World of Warcraft players would become a target. 

The first thing this trojan does it watch for the user to login to their WoW account and store the information to be sent to the attacker.

The attacker also creates numerous entries in the Image File Execution Options to prevent the victim from removing the application.  This way, the user is forced into removing the application manually, or biting the bullet and reformatting.

The list below is all the programs that are rendered useless by this trojan:

regtool.exe
KPPMain.exe
egui.exe
kpfw32.exe
kwatch.exe
kpfwsvc.exe
kavstart.exe

X-Cleaner.exe isn't on there?!  I'm insulted.  As you can see this threat hinders the ability for several mainstream anti-virus, anti-malware, rootkit detector, and process explorer.

After the trojan blocks access to your security applications, it sits and listens for any kind of Warcraft traffic that it might potentially steal.  The attacker will have the ability to consistently ping the infected PC and take information as needed.



We currently detect this threat as PWS.Game.rnq.  Mind your clicks.
