Summary

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

World of Warcraft is a fantasy based massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) released by Blizzard Entertainment.

The WOW 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.

As of September 2006, there is an estimated seven million active World of Warcraft subscriptions worldwide.
