Please note that all emails containing URLs are fake!
On June 13th, the Tokyo official cyber security task force’s Twitter official account “@ MPD_cybersec” called attention to fake emails of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympic Games (Tokyo Olympics).
The tickets for the Tokyo Olympics are reserved by reservation application, and the lottery is currently in progress, and the lottery results will be announced from June 20. On the other hand, it is expected that various spam emails will be circulated by taking advantage of this. Such spam emails should try to abuse the links and attachments.
However, there is no description of the URL in the lottery result email. The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department is calling for caution as a fake if it is written that “The winning result is click on the following URL”, “Please call immediately”, “Pay money to the following account”, etc.
The person who applied does not click the link in the email even if the link is described in the mail, and directly accesses the Tokyo 2020 official ticket sales site “ticket.tokyo2020.org”, and the result on the my ticket page please confirm.
I hope the train is open during the intensive effort period.
Set goals for the competition and set a period for comprehensive testing of traffic congestion mitigation efforts
A period equivalent to the period of Ori-Para is considered as a concentrated effort period, and companies are asked to give priority to efforts
At Challenge Week and Core Day, which will bring the peak of each company’s efforts, we will measure the effects
40% of those who think that “A fake public wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) has been installed, and the password etc. of those who have been connected without being aware of it or the virus etc. are likely to occur” I was surprised to be there.
The lottery for the spectator tickets for the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic Games has begun, and opportunities to access the official site have increased, but it has been found that a large number of domains similar to the official site have been acquired.
The purpose of use is unclear, but it can be exploited for financial fraud and phishing attacks, and security researchers are calling for caution.
The research group of Prof. Tatsuya Mori of Waseda University investigated the registration status of domains similar to the domain “tokyo 2020.org” used by the tournament, and summarized the results.
