The Malicious Website
Emma Watson Never Seen Before Home Video
The website is designed to look and feel like popular video sharing website Youtube.com. This helps convince the victims into dowloading and installing the malicious program.
If the victims click the "Play" button, they will be prompt to install fake and malicious Adobe Flash Player.
“Our system detected that you are using an outdated Video Player version, in order to watch videos on Youtube please update to the latest secured version of Video Player by clicking [the] ‘Upgrade Now’ button bellow,” the error message reads.
“Once you download and install the update refresh the browser to watch the video.”
If they click on the "Install" or "Download" button, they will be prompt to download the malicious file "scandisk.exe" (the file name may change).
If you want to install Adobe Flash player on your computer, please go to their website and install it from there. The link to their website is http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
