“YouTube” spam is potentially more than nasty…

You tube is one way “into” google. Spear phishing at it’s most cunning

I received this today and I think you should be informed..

An email supposedly from YouTube saying that your video is “on the top of YouTube”

It looks very authentic and is piggybacking the YouTube email address so you can’t see that it’s not from there.

There is a link in it for you to check, and because you are so excited to see that your video is “on the top”, you click it.

You then get a nasty website selling apparently Canadian drugs, or put more simply; unofficial Viagra etc.

There may well be something much more sinister within the link as well so my advice is Don’t Click The Link. Delete the email straight away and warn your friends.

Here is the screen shot of the email I received..
