Malware targeting gamers usually tends to revolve around the games themselves, such as fake copies of a hot new shooter or deceptive in-game items. Well, it looks like these attackers are mixing up their strategy: Malwarebytes Labs has found spyware spoofing an in-game voice chat app. At first, it steers you to a fake website offeringRazer's Comms software (http://www.engadget.com/2013/04/22/razer-comms-voice-chat-launches-in-open-beta/). If you're eager enough to click the Windows download link, you instead get a script that tries to harvest your logins and other sensitive info. A cursory glance suggests that it's (poorly) written by Russian cybercriminals renting their services.
