Identity Theft Finds it's Way into WoW

Currently, World of Warcraft boasts between 3.5 and 4 million players worldwide. This large base of players has attracted crooks who are stealing identities from innocent, unprotected players.

Viruses are being created that steal a subscriber’s username and password and send it to a thief who logs into the account and takes all the player’s virtual goods and sells them on online auction sites like eBay for real money. Just another reason to make sure you are protecting your PC (just in case real identity theft wasn’t good enough).
