Infostealer.Gampass is a detection for Trojan horses that specifically target video game credentials.
Most threats will attempt to log details such as video game registration keys and online account information for massively multiplayer online role playing games (MMORPG). In order to successfully achieve its primary function, the threat must run on a computer that contains the video game in question and is connected to a network.
The threats often arrive by the following means:
- File-sharing networks, as game enhancements
- Online forum posts
If a Symantec antivirus product displays a detection alert for this threat, it means the computer is already protected and the Symantec product will effectively remove it from the computer.
