Widows cursor flaw exposes 'WoW' to hack attacks
If you're running World of Warcraft on a Windows machine, you may well be subject to account hacking that could result in your in-game assets being fleeced.
According to BBC News, a flaw in the way Windows deals with animated cursors opens the door to hackers and potentially allows them to invade users' PCs.
For WoW players, this is potentially dangerous--and therefore an attractive target to the hackers--because their accounts can be filled with valuable weapons, gold and other items which can then be sold by the thieves.
Microsoft said it has issued a patch for the flaw.
