december. a little business that specializes in beauty now has an ugly name. emily turner shows us the salon in oakland is now getting its own makeover reporter: if you're looking for a beauty treatment something like laser hair removal or facial chemical peel the first name that comes to mind is probably not going to be isis. if you ask [ non-english language ] what's in a name, she will tell you, everything. her medical spa's name has become a lightning rod for negativity. >> pull up isis and not good stuff. >> reporter: the name is well intentioned. isis is the mythological egyptian goddess of beauty whose name is also the acronym for public enemy number one. unfortunately for business, there are those who have associated the spa with the group known for terror attacks rather than the harmless nymph. >> there is a little bit of sort of ridiculousness to the notion that a terrorist group would set up a spa in your neighborhood. >> reporter: but as the sign
5:16 pm
states, isis will soon be changing its name. for obvious reasons. at least they have a good sense of humor about it. but the reality is scary. >> what really prompted us to go ahead and make that change was that we were concerned first for the safety of the staff but when people are upset or angry, then we realize that we really had no control. >> reporter: so the egyptian chose a new name. alyssium, mythological egyptian paradise. >> at the end of the day we realized we only want to be associated with something that's beautiful and positive and wonderful. >> reporter: so far, at least, elyssium is not known to be the name of any terrorist organization. emily turner, kpix 5. haven't cini rain for days. -- haven't seen rain for days.

bay to san francisco never lose a signal. but this fbi document obtained by kpix 5 warns of significant cyber threats for super bowl 50 fans. one of the biggest concerns, open wi-fi networks. standing here in the middle of super bowl city, i have access to at least five open public wi- fi networks. and like any public wi-fi network, they are relatively easy to hack. the fbi is concerned that hackers may be able to intercept mobile transactions performed here or at levi's stadium or introduce malware on these phones via the public wi- fi network. >> open wi-fi is just that, it means that there is no security on the wi-fi system. at the need to realize whatever they are sending over that can be viewed by others. >> reporter: but this former fbi agent and kpix 5 security analyst jeff harp says the threat. exposing personal information -- the threat of exposing personal information isn't the only dilemma for fans. >> if you make a purchase at the stadium, that information is transmitted and it is possible for it to be intercepted. we have seen it happen in a
5:25 pm
number of occasions at a number of different vendors. >> reporter: while the fbi cyber threat assessment doesn't identify criminal operations, it does cite a, quote, high confidence based on past behavior of cyber criminals during major sporting events. prior to the 2011 pacquiao fight, fans got emails that appeared to be from stubhub confirming their orders. instead, the links sent them to phishing sites. and leading up to last year's super bowl, victims lost money and gave up personal information after falling for online ticket and lodging scams. but whether they are through social engineering or cyber hacks, the fbi says these cyber crimes are inevitable. >> the big takeaway is expect it to happen. this isn't something new. >> reporter: now, he says whether it's super bowl city or the stadium, you want to pay with cash when possible or always use credit instead of debit. and keep in mind, whenever you are using a public wi-fi network on one of these you wanted to be sure to be aware
5:26 pm
that it's not secure and somebody could be looking at what you're doing. >> it's al high-tech. >> there are free open wi-fi networks everywhere you go between san jose and san francisco all wi-fi. any open public wi-fi network is unsecure. >> all the bad guys are out there this week and looking. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
