Zero day holes found in popular online games
Zero day vulnerabilities have been discovered in popular online games that give attackers access to credit card and user data, researchers claim.
The remote code execution holes were discovered by Italian researchers Luigi Auriemma and Donato Ferrante who operate subscription vulnerability service Revuln.
Attackers could siphon credit cards from several "big" online multiplayer games where users make in game purchases. "One of the possible things that can be achieved is for instance installing malware on a remote system and having this system joining a botnet, composed by all the players of the vulnerable games," the researchers told SC.
