Phishing Games

When we think about phishing, we think about e-mails that try to get information from online banks, eBay or PayPal accounts. While in most of the cases this is true, it must be noted that the aim of the guys behind these attacks is the money. So, wherever there is money, there will be attempts to steal our information. Nowadays another common target are online games, specially MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games) as World of Warcraft or Lineage.

Last week I found this bid in eBay, selling four 70 level characters starting at US$ 27,000:
