WoW Authenticator Vulnerable

It was only a matter of time before it happened. Just like I tell all my clients when working on specialized projects, “If it’s made by a human it can be broke by a human”, and thus the Authenticator is now vulnerable to what appears to be a keylog combination  hack. I do not know all the details as I just walked in the door from being out of town a week.

The file everyone at this time says to look for on your system is called emcor.dll. Another source establishes that fake websites offering add-on downloads for Warcraft are bundling the infected files into common popular downloads.

In short:
Scan your system
Search for file emcor.dll
Download add-ons from only reliable sources
Scan add-ons you download
