world cup warning: angolan virus hack attackers

WATCH OUT for websites associated with the Angolan football team, and the Angolan goalkeeper Luis Mamona Joao! According to research by IT security firm McAfee, about 24 per cent of websites hosting screensavers of the Angolan team are infested with a variety of malicious software such as adware and spyware.

Fouls include: 'trip up' pop-ups, 'off side' e-mail spam, plus illegal passing of your passwords and credit card numbers to 'strikers' who hit your accounts and run off with all your money.

It can only be a matter of time before anti viris software called 'WebRef' is available.
