You’ve likely read it, seen it, drooled at Katniss and hungered for more (no pun intended). Norton Securities warns that scams are already happening on the internet and advises you to stay on your toes when searching for your favourite juicy details on the franchise.

While getting “rick-rolled” or watching a Youtube video tutorial on Katniss Everdeen’s trendy braid seems innocent enough, Norton has found searches related to the books and movies returning malicious results.
Norton lists their top searches that have returned malicious results:
- Hunger Games Suzanne Collins
- Hunger Games Free Movie Download
- Hunger Games Full Movie Torrent
So, protect yourself from malicious content by following Norton’s advice below:
- Choose your allies carefully – Katniss Everdeen wouldn’t trust the people trying to defeat her, and neither should you. Cybercriminals promise sensational content, such as leaked videos, to lure you into clicking on their poisoned links. Better to get your information from a website you trust, and use the free tool Norton Safe Web Lite to lead you to safe search results.
- Know how to defend yourself – Online security software from a reputable company will identify malicious links and protect against other unseen threats. Norton 360 allows you to surf online safely and will warn you away from lurking foes.
- Don’t be tempted by false hope – If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Evaluate the information you come across as though it were propaganda from the Capitol – all that glitters isn’t gold so don’t let your curiosity overcome common sense.
Look out for a Norton 360 giveaway soon!
