Malwarebytes Warns DOTA 2 Players About Ongoing Phishing Scams

June 17, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

Security research firm and anti-virus software maker Malwarebytes is warning players of Valve's popular MOBA game DOTA 2 to beware of nasty phishing schemes. The firm says in a new blog post that there is a new phishing scam making the rounds that offers "rare in-game items in exchange for a Yahoo email address and password," according to Malware intelligence analyst Chris Boyd at Malwarebytes.

Fans of DOTA 2 should also be wary of the following URL: steamonlinereward.webs.com

This URL, which was recently reported on the Steam forums a few days ago in a number of threads, offers fake "Steam Online Rewards" in the form of keys and Arcana (rare item drops). The URL also seeks Yahoo login usernames and passwords.
