Here is the article in question: http://www.viruslist.com/en/analysis?pubid=204791963Nowhere does it say what the proportion of trojans to online games to non-online games is. I think quotes have obviously been misinterpreted:"Today the most popular MMORPG targets are Lineage 2 (more than 40% of all Trojans for online games target Lineage 2), World of Warcraft (20%)"That's saying 20% of trojans targetting online games are targetting WoW, not that 20% of all trojans are targetting WoW."In 2006, the monthly number of Trojans for Lineage 2 and World of Warcraft rocketed and at year-end accounted for 70% of all malicious programs targeting online games."Again, this is in relation to online games, not every trojan around.I'm not denying that trojans targetting WoW (and other games) is a huge problem, but a lot of what's said in the article is incorrect.
