Virus Warning for Online Poker Players
A public warning has been issued to online poker players to be wary of a virus that appears to be targeting them specifically. The virus is able to obtain personal details and information and includes a “PokerGrabber” feature which it is claimed works on a number of the leading online poker brands.
The virus is a piece of Russian malware, named i2ninja, which is being sold on various hacker forums. Such is its sophistication that buyers of the software have access to a secure help desk for support issues. This is believed to be a first for malicious software.
The malware is being distributed by spam e-mails, download attacks and bogus websites. Once it has installed itself on a system, the hacker is able to access the web from the infected system and collect data. The data is then encrypted sent to the hacker who is able to remain anonymous throughout the process.
Given the power of this virus online poker players have been warned to be especially vigilant. Advice issued by internet security experts includes being particularly careful about opening emails with attachments and looking for any unrecognized activity in personal files or on online banking, poker or social accounts. Anti-virus software is a must and this should be checked to ensure that it is working and completely up to date.
