Okay I thought I've seen hackers and scammers trying to copy sites and/or valid emails to scam us and/or steal our information but this seems to be one of the worst in the bunch.

Apparently there is an underground group distributing hacking tool which creates websites that looks almost identical to the actual Youtube pages, which actually can be set to install viruses and/or trojans and other nasty stuff on your computer.


Also on another story, be careful if you see a prompt on your computer saying Antivirus XP or something along that line. It's a virus !!! A friend of mine was browsing around using IE 7 and got hit with this virus. It was truly nasty virus, though so far as far as I know as long as you didn't let the fake "Antivirus XP" program run there would be no damage done to your computer. Took me several hours helping her clean the computer.
