World of Warcraft and Aobo Mac Keylogger
Recently, there are lots of wow players with Apple Macs complaining that their wow accounts are hacked. Golds are lost, equipments are destroyed. I am sorry for the loss of the victims. I am a wow player too, I know how important character wow plays in our life. Some people thought their Macs are installed Keylogger, and they turned their guns to Aobo Mac Keylogger, which is the only Keylogger for mac records passwords.
Here is what they say
Recently I clicked on a link someone posted on the forums that I suspect might have been a keylogger/trojan.
I am on a mac and I do use firefox and nothing popped up asking if I wanted to "download" something I just got redirected to wowwiki.
I’ve never really worried about such things before because I’ve always begin careful, and I suppose lulled into a false sense of security being on a mac.
My question: Is there anything I can do to make sure nothing bad has happened?
I’m a new mac user, and i was wondering if there are still no known keyloggers for Mac? Also, how can i run virus scans for key loggers/viruses. I tried looking through the mac site and after a couple of hours of the same "mac’s are very secure, they are no viruses for macs" I got a little frustrated as I also found a Keylogger for mac website http://www.keylogger-mac.com, how can they say mac’s are very secure? SO i came here.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
From the above discussion of the wow players, you will see mac is not secure anymore. But for what took their wow accounts, actually it is not Aobo Mac Keylogger. Although it is known that only Aobo Mac Keylogger professional edition can record passwords currently but Aobo Mac Keylogger Pro edition requires the Mac system admin password to install. So, no one without your Mac system admin password can install the Keylogger onto your Mac.
And, your mac won’t be installed Aobo mac Keylogger through web surfing automatically. Aobo mac Keylogger requires manually configuring to work.
Macs are more secure than PCs, but who knows whether there are mac trojans or not ? So please be ware of them all the time. Here are the tips about how to protect your wow account from mac Keylogger trojans.
Do not run applications you don’t know what it is.
Check your "Activity Manager" everyday to make sure there is no suspicious process is running
Search your Mac for word "keylogger"
You don’t need to install any anti-virus or anti spy software on your Mac. Just do as i say. Your account will be safe then.
