If you're a League of Legends player, or you play Path of Exile, you'll want to take a moment and read this. At HITCON a group recently found a vulnerability in a few online games that has been exploited and the PlugX malware was nestled inside - downloading malware to the affected machines. While this has a potential for worldwide infection, it appears that Taiwan and Singapore are the most affected. Still, make sure to check out the tool and see if your computer is affected. Ultimately we need these games patched - and quickly.
PlugX allows remote users to perform malicious and data theft routines on a system without the user’s permission or authorization. PlugX variants often target legitimate apps so the use of these games is not new. One marked difference is that this PlugX variant created its own autostart service rather than relying on the legitimate app’s.
