FIFA World Cup Scams and How to Avoid Them

FIFA World Cup Scams and How to Avoid Them


With the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil just around the corner, scammers have kicked off efforts to target fans. Symantec has already identified several World Cup scams, including:

• Emails promoting free tickets to the World Cup that contain a malicious zip file with a remote administration tool (RAT) known as DarkComet.
• Emails containing news and highlight reels about World Cup teams and players that can also be used to entice users to open up malicious attachments or click on malicious links.
• Scams claiming to offer free live streams that may ask you to fill out a survey or download and install software before you can unlock access to the live stream.

Symantec offers several tools to protect customers against this malware, including a Backdoor.Breut detection and a one-year subscription to Norton Mobile Security (free for a limited time).
