    I done a good share of virus work in my days but I dont ever remember reading about curser flaw to get account data. Poor Wow people. I hope Blizzard is taking care of those affected.

      I read about this flaw in a sec bulletin from semantec like a week ago or so, the bulletin made it sound like it was obscure and no big deal, but the went on to say you should run everything in a special unpriviledged mode just to be safe...

            There is a flaw with optical mice. If you are using a surface with high contrast, it can confuse it and make it go haywire. Often the effect is jumping from one corner to the other corner very fast. To correct this, just get a one color mouse pad.

              Also check the laser opening for slight dust. This can also make things go funny.
              The flaw in question relates to stuff like those insipid walking dinosaurs and the like.
