Brazilian national soccer coach Carlos Dunga is the first popular world cup figure to be used as bait by cyber criminals.

The hackers are using email spam – which appears to be a page from a popular Brazilian newspaper – claiming that Dunga has been involved in a vicious assault. The coach was allegedly punched in the face by two angry fans because two players – Neymar and Ganso – had not been selected in his 23-man team for the FIFA World Cup in South Africa later this month.

Besides offering a very poorly modified picture of the coach, this scam also contained a link to pictures of the fight, but link leads to a corrupt website: hxxp://ml210-202-198-66.vdslpro.static.apol.com.tw/[REMOVED]/index.asp?

The link redirects unwary World Cup fans to another website, which belongs to the Malaysian government (according the domain .GOV.MY ) and which appears to be hacked: hxxp://kew.mida.gov.my/[REMOVED]agressao_dunga.exe

The file which claims to contain photos related of the fight is really a Trojan which specializes in capturing banking credentials. With the World Cup only eight days away, many more of these scams will surely arise.
