Kaspersky Labs say online gamers targeted by hackers

London: PC gamers around the world have suffered 11.7 million attacks in 2013, Kaspersky labs experts said.

Kaspersky Labs have recognized 4.6 million pieces of malware focusing on gaming. Each day, round 34,000 gaming users are targeted by hackers on an average.

According to the Daily Express, gamers in Russia are the worst-hit followed by Vietnam and China. In 2013, about 8,813,050 attempts were made on the Russian gamers.

Vietnam gamers experienced 503,947 attack attempts while China occupied third position with 376,058 attack attempts on its gamers.

Kaspersky Labs had detected a major espionage campaign earlier this year, targeting multi-player online game makers.

Hackers use different types of malware to gain access to users’ gaming accounts and passwords.

These hackers target popular games and lure gamers with the promise of giving them additional powers along with discounts or cheap gaming goods.
