Infected Chinese site leaves gamers vulnerable

Mop.com, which has more than 50 million registered users, has been injected with malicious code.

The game channel of a popular Chinese information and entertainment Web site, Mop.com, has been compromised, leaving the accounts of online gamers vulnerable to theft, security vendor Websense has warned.

In a blog post Monday, Websense said cybercriminals had injected the game site with malicious code by modifying a Javascript file referenced by the site.

Mop.com has more than 50 million registered users and clocks over 200 million pageviews daily, the security company noted, adding that the game site is especially popular with World of Warcraft fans. The site is ranked No. 274 on Alexa's list of most visited Web sites in the world.
