Last time we talked about cyber
criminals using YouTube's Video
to guide victims to Malware ridden websites. Today we'll talk about
yet another method being used within YouTube and other social media
Malware distributors have been
creating instructional "How to" videos to get victims to willingly
visit malicious websites and infect their own computers.
Once on the site the victim is lured to install Adware/SystemSecurity rogue software.
The best way to avoid these types of scams is by researching the product prior to installing it on your computer. Sometimes a simple Google search can literally save you hundreds of dollars in repair costs.
