Have you seen  the top comments on YouTube recently? Mostly, they're about the videoclip itself, or about other artists that do not live up to the talent of said videoclip ;-) .

Sometimes, however, spam reaches the top comments (whether or not with a lot of upvotes):


I've seen this kind of Youtube spam unfold into 2 scenarios:
1) The usual survey scams, promising an iPad for example
2) The download of adware or a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) to your machine


Let's take a look at both scenarios, we will go more in depth about the second one, as it is the most interesting. This post includes prevention methods, a removal process and a conclusion at the bottom if you want to skip the investigation.

I've read your blogpost, fun & interesting reading.

I can give you one tool to help you protect (besides Avast Home with PUP-P, Chrome) against overlooking check-boxes... http://Browserprotect.org.

Original site might give problems with Download Master*, so mirror download (probably with toolbars?:>), here: ptf.com/download/browserprotect/6673214/

Copy-Paste:
" Avoid Browser Hijacks.
BrowserProtect Premium keeps your browsers safe from homepage, search providers, extensions and other hijacks.

Easy, comprehensive and FREE anti-hijack browser protection for Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome."

Karma!

Sure, it's a basic tool I install for my friends.

One warning: it has zero intelligence. So if you already have a lot of handy extensions installed, you must review each one by hand. No serieus feedback is given! Still, after that... Nothing will slip by you ; )

Karma!
