Here are some additional follow up details about the authenticator situation.

First of all, Blizzard has confirmed this as a man in the middle attack:

Official Blizzard Quote:

After looking into this, it has been escalated, but it is a Man in the Middle attack.

This is still perpetrated by key loggers, and no method is always 100% secure.

Additionally, Cameron, a World of Raids user, has done some digging into the file and discovered the following information to potentially help you if you've been infected. Here are the details from his digging:

Firewall IP Block
You may be able to block the IP to help prevent your information from reaching the hackers. This is of course something that may change after they find out they've been discovered, but it should offer some temporary help while you get rid of all the files.


This info is preliminary. If you use it you should also take the steps you do normally

The keylogger will send the data to:
Port: 1068

The keylogger data file can be found in /users/username/appdata/Temp along with the DLL

Update 1:

The keylogger sends the "current tick" to the server. Presumably so it can tell how long it has to use the code.

Keylogger Server Details
This information was also discovered by Cameron, and is essentially the "known" location of the server collecting data sent by the keylogger.


The keylogger is a standard windows based keylogger which uses SetWindowsHookEx hooking as a debug hook (WH_DEBUG) so it gets first dibbs on typed data (Although for some reason it does pass on the data to other hooks and not block them...)

The data is set to:
Port: 1068

OrgName: Managed Solutions Group, Inc. (Known spamming server)
OrgID: MSG-48
Address: 45535 Northport Loop East
City: Fremont
StateProv: CA
PostalCode: 94538
Country: US

Anyone who has an authenticator attached to their account should run a search (and probably an antivirus scan in case it's on the threat list already) immediately and ensure the file emcor.dll does not exist on your computer. This file is one reported to be allowing hackers to access World of Warcraft accounts that have authenticators attached to them. It's also possible there are other variations of these suspicious files, so if anyone has additional information please respond in the comments.

Based on this thread, the file may be found in /users/username/appdata/Temp. Since the file is fairly new (first mentions of it are only a few days ago), and the common source is unknown, I urge everyone to not log in to World of Warcraft or the account management site until you've run a scan. Confirm your computer is secure before using your authenticator, because this DLL file is allowing hackers to crack through it and access your account.

A warning sign that you're currently infected with this keylogger is that WoW will say your authentication code is incorrect, even if you know for sure you typed in the correct code. Back to Top
