Fake curse client that steals your wow gold and other information
With the fake Curse Client that has been posted on the internet, wow players were being hijacked of their wow gold and wow account. They got the Trojan installed to their system from searching the Curse client on Google and it diverts the page to make the players click on the unofficial link.

“To summarize for those of you that haven’t read the green posts:
-The trojan is built into a fake (but working) version of the Curse Client that is downloaded from a fake version of the Curse Website. This site was popping up in searches for “curse client” on major search engines, which is how people were lured into going there.
-At this point, it seems the easiest method to remove the trojan is to delete the fake Curse Client and run scans from an updated Malwarebytes. Should you still have issues, there is a more manual method that Ressie posted earlier in the thread.
-Thanks to Ressie’s efforts, most security programs should be able to identify this threat shortly, if not by the time I type this.
-If you were compromised, follow the instructions here and we’ll do our best to set everything right (as we always do).
-For those of you interested in these MitM style attacks, this is the only confirmed case we’ve seen in several years outside of the “Configuring/HIMYM” trojan in early 2012 that hit a handful of accounts. These sort of outbreaks are annoying, but an Authenticator still protects your account 99% of the time. Stay safe!”
