Cyber-criminals are claiming that they have a video of a police officer getting raped by his horse, which they are using to lure their victims to fake and malicious websites. If you are taken to websites, which claim that you can view the video, and ask you to complete surveys, download software, share or "like" the websites, in order to view the tape, please leave the website and do not follow any instructions on it.
Please continue reading below.
This is how cybercriminals infect your computer with viruses, Trojan horse and other malware. Also, this is how they trick you into making money for them, when you complete the surveys or just visit the website to view the advertisements on it.
The video the scammers are using to trick persons into visiting malicious websites is located on Youtube.com; and the police officer was not raped by the horse.
It is important that you remember that you do not need to install any software, share or like a website in order to view a video. If you are asked to do these things, some cyber-criminal on the internet is attempting to scam.
