Remember the earlier Facebook scam related to Marika Fruscio showing breasts on TV? Well, looks like the scam had made its comeback again. The new scan titled – “[VIDEO] Yeahh!! It happens on Live Television!” which has the message – “Lol Checkout this video its a very embarrassing moment for her” is reportedly spreading like wildfire on the social networking giant.
The scam has the same thumbnail that was used for the Marika Fruscio Facebook scam. The scam message comes with link that directs you to a bogus web page. The web page displays a message stating that the “divx-plugin missing” and asks you to install the plugin in order to watch the video.
Not matter what, DO NOT install the plugin, or do not download anything from that site. When you click on the “Install Plugin” button, a malware will be downloaded and automatically installed on your computer. This malware is designed to gather all your personal and sensitive information, which then sends it to the scammer.
Please be aware that this malware can be a huge threat to your system. If in case you have accidently installed the plugin, then I recommended you to scan your computer using you anti-virus software. I also suggest you to remove the scam from your news feed by clicking on the Xmark on the top-right corner of the post. Alternatively you can report the scam to the Facebook Security team.
Please note that scams like this use multiple domain and different web pages. You may see variations in the landing pages, but they are all the same.
