Online poker players are being warned to keep their anti-virus software up-to-date and avoid clicking links from unknown sources after a top internet security company announced it has discovered malware that specifically targets both PokerStars and Full Tilt players.

The Malware is called Win32/Spy.Odlanor and, according to Robert Lipovsky, a security researcher at Eset, targets specifically PokerStars and Full Tilt on infected machines. Once a victim is infected with the Trojan, the virus looks for PokerStars and Full Tilt clients and if the victim is running either of them, the virus takes screenshots which are then sent to the attacker.

These screenshots show the infected player’s alias and their hole cards. As it is possible to search for opponents via the PokerStars and Full Tilt clients, it is possible for the attacker to find the infected player, join their table and know exactly how to play against that particular player.

Honestly how would this exactly be profitable unless they target some stupid guy with deep pockets.
On average they would have win against these players (the ones who are bound to click something stupid to invite a bucket of malwares into their cpu) anyway.

You know when you reach the high stakes you will surely but up another internet connection solely for playing poker and do not use third party software due to the risk of them losing money and all all if hacks, so they are paranoid but in the end they set up once and they good and they dont have too worry anymore they will have peace out mind, anyway good luck mate have fun and hope you do well at the tables mate cheers!

Another way to target poker players Smile
I wonder if some players have been affected.
In the future such attacks wont be able to get discovered before some major damage is done.
And im not talking about poker only.
