MySpace becomes hotbed for new Adware scheme


According to Internet security monitor Websense, an increasing trend is growing on Myspace, the social networking site that has an audience of millions of daily viewers, which involves tricking users into clicking on fake YouTube videos that could eventually lead to unknowingly installing damaging adware files.

The potentially dangerous links look like normal embedded YouTube videos, except when a user clicks on it, it will lead them to a Windows Media video that creates a pop-up installer window asking the user to accept an end-user license agreement, which will install the Adware program Zango Cash.
