Liputan6.com, Jakarta – The simultaneous broadcast of Barbie and Oppenheimer sparked the “Barbenheimer” trend on the internet, where many people watched both films of different genres live on the same day.

Cybersecurity firm Kaspersky found, scammers deceive unwary users, by distributing phishing scams that prey on the euphoria surrounding the film’s release.

The aim, of course, is to deceive individuals and in an illegitimate way obtain money and personal data from victims.

Olga Svistunova, security expert at Kaspersky warned, in the midst of the excitement of Barbie and Oppenheimer movies, internet users must be vigilant and comply with basic internet security rules.

“Although the experience is encouraging, we must not ignore the risks,” he said, as quoted in a press release, Friday (21/7/2023).

Buyers of the Barbie doll can add a helicopter for £56, bringing the total purchase cost to £60.
