All your passwords belongs to us!

Published by at 6:55 am under General

According to Inforworld, over 10,000 web pages (That’s pages, not sites) are infected with malicious Javascript (edited: was Java) code aimed at installing password capturing software on as many machines as possible. But their target isn’t your bank account, it’s your online gaming credentials. If you weren’t already aware that most online gaming communities have a real world economy based on buying in-game goods, here’s your proof. I know from the spams I get in City of Heroes that there are a lot of sites that will offer to give you every in-game toy you’d ever want. All you have to do is give them your password and they’ll hook up your account. Umm, no thanks.

    The Infoworld article says Javascript, not Java.
