Kaspersky Warns Against Suspicious Streaming of Euro 2012

The football championship is already in full swing, but not everyone can watch the matches on TV in their own homes. Some people have to stay in the office, others sit in the garden with no TV connection.



This does not stop anyone from enjoying Euro 2012. This is possible, for example, through the internet and the live video stream of public broadcasters. ARD and ZDF broadcast the major sports event on the Internet for free! This allows German football fans to follow the games regardless of location. Both TV stations make their offer via smartphone apps, but only at low resolution.


Zattoo has also established a live stream on the net. The only requirement is the application via e-mail for licensing reasons, and the use is only possible with the WLAN. The Swiss free TV service are available for iOS and Android. However, all video streams have a technically-related delay as compared with the conventional TV broadcasting.


The security experts at Kaspersky Labs warned against resorting to unauthorized services, or searching for “alternative” streams. Cyber​​-criminals would often send links in Facebook or Twitter which direct to websites than can infect the users device with dangerous malware. Football fans should be cautious of these dubious streaming services, and trust only official live streams.
