Spammers Attack World Cup Fans

IBM has warned that spammers are targeting FIFA World Cup fans. IBM’s X-Force has been tracking spammers targeting followers of the World Cup, which began on June 14 and runs until July 15 in Russia.

There have already been a number of scams launched against unsuspecting fans, including fake notifications for prize winnings linked to FIFA sponsors, as well as fake product sales.

Big Blue claims 65 percent of such spam has been sent from IP addresses hosted in the USA, while 23 percent has come from Italy and the remaining 12 percent from other countries.
