ESET®, a global pioneer in proactive protection for more than two decades, warns users of PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker of a new malicious spyware program called Odlanor. The spyware, which takes screenshots of the infected player’s virtual poker hand, is designed to allow the malware operator to cheat during online games.

As of September 16, several hundred users have been infected with Win32/Spy.Odlanor. Malware researchers at ESET analysed the trojan, discovering that it is installed and activated on Windows systems in a number of ways.

„We have seen this trojan masquerading as a number of benign installers for various general purpose programs, such as Daemon Tools or uTorrent. In other cases, the spyware is installed through various poker-related programs,“ says Robert Lipovsky, Senior Malware Researcher at ESET.

Once installed, the malware first checks if PokerStars or Full Tilt Poker is running. If confirmed, Odlanor proceeds to take screenshots of the poker hand, all without alerting the victim. The screenshots - which capture the player’s cards in the victim’s virtual hand - are then sent to the attacker, giving the criminal an unfair advantage at winning the poker game.

Detailed information is available on ESET’s We Live Security blog - The Trojan Games: Odlanor malware cheats at poker.
