Blizzard / WoW Phishing

malware_warningStarting this weekend some phishing mails were making the rounds for Blizzard / World of Warcraft. The cyber criminals were trying to get their hands on login credentials of unsuspecting users.

The phishing mail used an online survey as bait. Every participant was promised to get a Jade Tiger for their game character.


The used domain looks very much like a real Blizzard domain. It was registered two weeks ago and points to Russian servers. It doesn’t really belong to Blizzard though, which is why we contacted the company to take further measures.


Don’t fall for this scam! Else you will loose your credentials to the phishers who in turn try to cash out as much as possible from your account!
