Security Warning: Trojan virus on Wowhead, Thotbott & Allakhazam

Ompi's picture

There is currently a trojan virus spreading trough advertisements on Wowhead, Thottbot and Allakhazam. The advert will appear in the form of a browser highjack which grabs your front window and resizes it to fake a warning dialog.

The Wowhead team is already aware of this problem and they are trying to fix it, but it seems more difficult than intended, so they might remove advertisements completely until the issue is found.

Until then, you should consider using a different database site or add some protections to your browser.
