Recently, Kaspersky Lab experts detected a new wave of spam emails dedicated to the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Spammers picked up on people’s desire to watch the games live and created a message about a (fake) lottery allegedly organized by the International Olympic Committee and the Brazilian government. The spammers tried to convince victims that they had won, and all they had to do was reply to the email and provide some personal information.
This story is not as new as it seems: Bad guys started the spam campaign devoted to the Olympic Games 2016 in the summer of 2015, and now we are observing another wave. What’s worse, spam emails are not the only threat sport fans face.
