Beware Diablo 3 Crack File

Posted 9 Jan 2012 by

This is a friendly word of warning for anyone trying to do anything dodgy with the Diablo 3 Beta. Apparently Microsoft are warning against anybody downloading a file called “diablo3-crack.exe” from torrent sites because they will be  in for a shock, it contains serious malware.

The “fun” begins once the Pontoeb malware is executed. Pontoeb gathers power through obtaining information from the infected system, which it then sends back to a remote attacker. The information is gathered through a WMI query that retrieves data such as SerialNumber, SystemDrive, Operating system and processor architecture. But its ultimate goal is to morph the infected system into a zombie. It installs a backdoor where an attacker connects to in order to control the infected system and execute certain commands (for example, download a file, update itself, visit a website, and perform HTTP, SYN, and UDP flooding)

You have been warned. Do not download anything game related that is not official!
