Panda Software is giving away a PlayStation Portable every day during FIFA World Cup 2006

GLENDALE, CA June 7, 2006

Panda Software has launched a prize drawing for users who buy or renew the Panda Titanium 2006 and Panda Platinum 2006 consumer security solutions during the World Cup finals. Every day of the World Cup tournament, Panda will give away a PSP (PlayStation Portable) console accompanied by EA Sports’ FIFA World Cup 2006 video game.

This June, the FIFA World Cup will give hackers the ideal occasion to launch massive scale phishing attacks and hoaxes against computer users.

The FIFA World Cup has already been used by hackers on two previous occasions to lure users. In May 2005 the Sober.V worm enticed users to open an e-mail attachment with malicious code by offering free tickets for matches as a decoy. Users need an anti-malware solution to tackle both known and unknown viruses.

This new promotion is open to users who buy Panda’s software for the first time and clients of the Panda Software consumer security solutions who renew their licenses during the World Cup.

This Panda Software promotion runs from June 9 to July 9. Users who want to take part can do so via phone or Internet. Once they buy the product or renew their license, participants must register their products in the company’s client database. Winners will be chosen in a computerized drawing. Panda Software will contact them by phone or e-mail, and publish the winners list on its website. Winners must confirm their personal details by sending an e-mail to fifa2006@pandasoftware.es or by phoning 00 34 918 063 700 within 15 days of being announced as a winner.

Pedro Bustamante, Marketing Director at Panda Software, hopes users will take advantage of the promotion to enjoy the World Cup and boost their PC security: “I wish the best of luck to participants in the promotion, so they can enjoy this World Cup with a little bit more excitement thrown in. In any event, users that choose Panda Software can be sure that with get complete protection against all kinds of computer threats, and full tech support from the Panda team, available 24 hours a day.”
