A file named emcor.dll which can be found in C:/Documents and Settings/Users/username/Application Data/Temp. Once the user launches the “add-on”, the PC is infected and causes World of Warcraft to crash. Once the user attempts to¬† re-start World of Warcraft and log back into the account, the authenticator code is intercepted by the hacker and different code is sent to Blizzard’s servers, causing the account to be locked out.
