Wr0ld Cup Posted by Mikko @ 08:20 GMT

Yeah, the football World Cup starts *today* in Germany.

It will be interesting to see if there will be any virus-related incidents during the games. Over the last months we've already seen a couple of e-mail viruses and phishing scams trying to cash in with the popularity of the games.


We will also be monitoring what's happening at the stadiums themselves. You might remember that during the World Championships in Athletics last year there were bluetooth virus problems at the stadium. This happens easily when you gather tens of thousands of people from all over to world to a very small area - and everybody has a phone in their pocket.

While we're on the topic, lets see who's going to win the games. Here's our poll:
