Photo Frames Hack Game Accounts
I know the title sounds kind of strange, but it’s completely true. I’m sure some of you have heard of the virus known as ‘Mocmex’. Apparently, the threat this virus poses is much greater than initially believed. Some industry insiders believe that the initial Mocmex is simply a test run for something far more damaging on it’s way. For now,if you happen to have digital photo frames, you might want to make sure they aren’t part of the infected group. If they are, your computer could already be under siege without your knowledge. Game accounts are worth a lot of money these days, so we all need be real cautious in the near future.
How did Mocmex make it to the United States?
Digital Insignia photo frames sold primarily at Best Buy were loaded with the virus in China and then shipped here. Apparently, these photo frames have been discontinued but not recalled. In addition to Best Buy, they were also sold at Sam’s Club, Target and Costco according to the via links.
What exactly does Mocmex do?
According to an analyst form Computer Associates, the trojan, called Mocmex, is able to block more than 100 types of security and anti-virus software from killing it, and bypasses the Windows firewall to download files from remote locations, spreading them randomly over your hard drive and any portable storage device you plug into your PC — like, for example, a digital photo frame. The trojan is apparently set to only steal gaming passwords at present, but CA says it’s capable of stealing nearly any information on your machine, and thinks it might be a test for a much worse virus yet to come.
