    Hello again!

    Online gamers, be on guard - A new Trojan named ‘Win32.OnLineGames.dr’ can rob your username and password of the game account, warn the experts at MicroWorld Technologies. ‘OnlineGames.dr’ comes into computers via offers and help notes posted by crooks in game forums or by exploiting browser vulnerabilities.

    Been around for almost as long as I can remember. Especially rampant in China, with certain variants stealing IM usernames/passwords as well (which seems to be a valuable online commodity).

    Thanks anyway.
