Zscaler researchers are warning of a link to a video claiming to show actress Emma Watson naked, which instead leads to malware.
“But unfortunately for all those who fell for the lure, a click on the Play button or any other link does not start the (nonexistent) video,” writes Help Net Security’s Zeljka Zorz. “Instead, the target is asked to update its Adobe Flash Player in order to be able to view it.”
“And the offered file (scandsk.exe) – actually a Trojan dropper – is currently detected by only 17 percent of the AV solutions employed by VirusTotal,” Zorz writes.
