Date: August 11, 2008

Singapore (dpa) - Cyber-security experts warned Internet users of a deluge of viruses and spam during the Olympic Games, with those reading Chinese at a higher risk, news reports said on Friday.

E-mail messages with headers such as "Beijing Olympics Cancelled" or "Beijing Olympics 2008 Lottery Promotion" should not be opened, they told The Straits Times.

Singaporeans who read Chinese are vulnerable because many subject headers are written in the language.
