Update: Keylogger websites shut down

The main infection source of the recent anti-authenticator keylogger/trojan appears to have been shut down. The main places of infection - the fake site wowmatrixf._com and other associated fake addon sites, including cursea._com and deadlybossmodss._com - are no longer online. (Victims were lured to these fake sites via Google advertisements)

We can breathe a sigh of relief but don't become complacent. This trojan/keylogger is likely to spring up somewhere else. Be cautious of what you download and execute from any web site. Addons should not require an installer package to execute. Be very suspicious of anything that asks you to "run a program". Follow our 10 Easy Steps to increase protection.

If you notice that these fake sites pop up in another spot then let us know.
