Years-long cyber attack on online gaming companies uncovered

Russian-based computer security company says it's uncovered an international cybercrime group that uses code stolen from online gaming companies to create software that has been used to spy on activists and steal aerospace secrets.

The group may also be funding its cyber espionage by looting the virtual cash from the online games of these companies and selling it for real money.

The Winnti group, named after a backdoor trojan horse program discovered by Symantec, have infected more than 30 companies in the online game industry located in South East Asia and have attacked game publishers in Germany, the U.S., Japan, China, Russia, Brazil, Peru and Belarus, according to Kaspersky Lab.
