World of Warcraft phishing scams are becoming commonplace these days. I wrote an article last year which covered the anatomy of a WoW phishing site.
To give you some idea on how widespread the issue is, I have put together a collection of the known illegal phishing domains seen so far this year. This list is largely based on a WoW spam honeypot that I have established and further supplemented by tips from players.
Warning - do not visit these sites! They are included here to help educate gamers on what to look for with regards to phishing URL's. Some are still active and may feature malware/keyloggers. I have purposely mangled the URL so that you don't accidently click on the sites. If you feel tempted then stop reading now - you have been warned.
WoW Phishing Domain List
These domains are constantly changing - as one is shut down or blocked, another appears. As you can see, there are a lot of variations.
These URL's are usually associated with a spam email telling you that your WoW account has been suspended. The email asks you to click on a link (which may be disguised as a valid game site URL) which takes you to these malicious URL's to phish for your game details. The link could also arrive as an in-game mail or whisper.
As always, don't click on links in emails that appear to come from Blizzard and don't believe the random in-game whispers that tell you that you have won a rare spectral tiger or that your account has been suspended and that you immediately need to log in in to unlock it.
