Olympics Spam Warning

Watch out for email messages about the Olympics that ask you to click on a link to watch a video or get more info. They will probably look a lot like that CNN spam that you might have seen earlier this week. The links in the CNN spam resulted in installation of viruses/spyware and keystroke loggers on computers. The Olympics spam will try to do the same.

When (not if) you get those “Olympic” emails, don’t click on the links! Just click on the Trash icon to delete the message.

If you want updates on the Olympics, just go to the usual mainstream news sites.

Unless you really want to have a keystroke logger on your computer, or be a spam relay, or a victim of identity theft.
