Hackers Compromise YouTube Messaging to Spread Malware
According to security experts, YouTube's messaging feature is attacked by cyber criminals who have acquired control of the site to spread malicious software.
According to a report released by PandaLabs' malware identification and assessment laboratory, hackers are transmitting fake YouTube e-mails to users saying that they are spotted on a spy camera and the movie has been posted online. The purpose of this scam is to get users to click on the video link.
The reports state that these e-mails are using subjects like "ConrhdSchiffer1983 has sent you a message on YouTube". However, the body content asks if the recipient is sure the given http:// (blocked URL) is his foremost acting experience.
