The Trojan virus that pretends to be a YouTube video
« on: 08. June 2007., 20:12:17 »
You might think 'tubing' is one of those deviant sexual practices that lurks in the moist corners of the internetweb. And it probably is. But it's also a new term coined by security firm Websense, to describe a nefarious new hacking technique that sees a nasty Trojan horse masquerading as a YouTube video.
Users think they're going to watch the latest funny video from Google's video-sharing site, but in fact they're downloading a Trojan horse called YouTube04567, which proceeds to grab sensitive information off their PC (like their subscription details to those tubing websites) and upload them to an undisclosed remote location. Ouch.
