RAZER Hit By Cyber Attacks
This is scary news.
Razer Brand and Esports Get Hijacked by Cyber Criminals – Scammers Hide Malware Attack via Sponsorship Promise
WHAT: Razer’s global brand and gamers’ love of esports is being targeted by scammers.
A fake email offering a free streamer sponsorship from Razer hit the Internet last week. This email is a scam and recipients should not click on any of the links within the email as it will launch a malware application.
Scam Indicators include the following: The email comes from a Gmail account and not from a Razerzone.com account; Razer is misspelled in the email address as “Razorzonesponsorship”; The email body contains spelling and grammatical mistakes that are common in scam emails.
WHO: Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers. More information is available at http://www.razerzone.com/about-razer.
WHY: Razer’s brand and fan base are being used to spread malicious software and we want to ensure that anyone who receives this email is aware of the danger. Razer does not send out sponsorship deals via email. Interested streamers are encouraged to sign up at Razer’s bona fide site, https://www.razerzone.com/supported-streamer.
