For any major event, fans will try to watch in any way they can. But that leaves them open to unscrupulous actors…:
[…] More surprisingly is the way hackers will trick fans into clicking on links that appear legitimate.
“Those who are trying to watch the game through legitimate means should also be aware of attackers using typo-squatted domains, or fake URLs, to host sites that look like the original and appear legitimate,” Mr Woodruff said.
“These typo-squatted domains often have a single character out of place or could be generated using common typing errors but are very similar to the legitimate site. Attackers often copy the look of the original domain to make the user think they are safe. They then steal the user credentials when they attempt to login.”
