There are a few fake e-mails being sent around, with the assumption that they are coming from YouTube.

The webpages are embedded with viruses, malware and spywares.

This is one of the links in the e-mail messages: http://bspsolutions.net/banana.html. Please do not go to the link.
If you click on any of the links within the e-mail messages, you will be redirected to a website selling viagra and other erectile dysfunction drugs, or redirected to a website with trojan horses, viruses and spyware programs.
Most of these email messages are more of a nuisance that a threat and will be filtered by your email spam filters. Please ensure that your anti-virus software is updated and immediately delete these email messages, if they end up in your inbox.
