Beware of Star Wars Scam Sites!

The Star Wars film series may just be the single most popular film series of all time, and the fact of the matter is that the latest Star Wars film, dubbed The Rise of Skywalker, is widely considered to be one of the most anticipated films in recent history. As a result of this fact, a lot of people are probably going to be quite anxious about finding a way to watch the movie as quickly as possible, and pretty much the only way to watch the movie right now is to go to the movie theater.

However, not everyone would want to spend the money to go to the cinema, and at the same time you might not want to leave your home. Malicious actors are taking advantage of this by pretending to offer you the chance to watch the movie by going to a particular site. You have probably seen it advertised in one way or another, and if you are being truthful you would have to admit that you would definitely be tempted to click on it since what it promises is something that most people would consider to be a very enjoyable experience all in all.

That being said, you should be very careful about these links and websites. The reason for this is that while these sites might appear to give you a high quality movie watching experience, the truth of the situation is that they are mostly just trying to trick you in some way until you end up giving them your credit card details. Beware of these sites and the tricks they will use, because if they get a hold of your credit card details chances are that this will result in a pretty serious financial loss for you all in all.


Kaspersky also suggested to avoid clicking on dubious links, their security researchers also informed to not download and open suspicious file formats.
"Check the website’s authenticity. Do not visit websites allowing you to watch a movie until you are sure that they are legitimate and start with ‘https.’ Confirm that the website is genuine by double-checking the format of the URL or the spelling of the company name, reading reviews about it and checking the domains’ registration data before starting downloads.", explained Kaspersky.
