Summary

Trojan-PSW.Win32.Lineage is a family of trojan spies. The malware steals account information and passwords for the online game Lineage.

Lineage is a fantasy based massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) released in 1998 by South Korean computer game developer NCsoft. The Lineage trojan is designed to steal account information in order to allow a remote hacker access to the player's account. The hacker can then logon and steal the player's virtual assets by transferring them to another player account. Such assets are often sold or auctioned off for real-world currency. With millions of players, such trojans can easily affect thousands of users.

Lineage is popular in Asia, and especially so in Korea.
