    Bit of a read about online gaming trojans in Asia and a typical infected email attachment.

    • OnLineGamesEncPK.fam!tr.pws targeted 80 percent of its attack on Taiwan. The remaining 20 percent were spread among Japan (7.1), the U.S. (1.9), India (1.7), Mexico (1.1) and others.
    • OnLineGames.SIN also focused 80 percent of its efforts on one Asian country, choosing China to receive the brunt of its attack. Japan (7.6), Hong Kong (4.6), Taiwan (2.3), Korea (1.0) and others made up the remainder.
    • In addition to the heavy attack on one country, emails seeded with the two online gaming Trojans also leveraged the traditional Chinese language as a localization tactic.
    • Mutant.CV began its campaign on April Fools Day with concentrated spikes of activity, while the gaming Trojans showed consistent daily volume throughout the month.
