Malicious Spam - ''YouTube Service Has Sent You a Message"

Malicious Spam - ''YouTube Service Has Sent You a Message"

There are a few fake e-mails being sent around, with the assumption that they are coming from YouTube. My free anti-virus software Avast, was able to block a few of the webpages that I was taken to, after clicking on the links in a few of the email messages. The webpages are embedded with viruses, malware and spywares.

Please continue reading below.

A Few of the Fake Email Message Subjects

  • YouTube Service sent you a message: Your video has been approved
  • YouTube Content Service sent you a notification: Your video on the TOP of YouTube
  • YouTube - Thank you for your request

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.
