Miscreants have booted a World Cup-themed email malware attack onto the web, taking advantage of existing material on the tournament.

Booby-trapped emails are doing the rounds, posing as messages from African Safari organiser Greenlife. The emails contain an attached PDF file claiming to provide a guide to the first African edition of football's most prestigious tournament.

Or easier still, don't open unsolicited e-mails.

We lose count of the number of infections we've removed from the computers of people who have opened unsolicited e-mail. It's one of the oldest methods there is for spreading infection, yet every day there's a fool somewhere who gets infected this way.

It doesn't matter how interesting the content sounds, if you didn't ask for someone to send you mail, then don't open it.
