The "Dance of the Hillary" Message Hoax

"Please inform all contacts from your list not to open a video called the “Dance of the Hillary”. It is a virus that formats your mobile. Beware it is very dangerous. They announced it today on BBC radio. Fwd this msg to as many as you can!"

The "Dance of the Hillary" hoax is similar to the "Dance of the Pope" that was created by pranksters over a year ago, to frighten online users into sharing.

No news agency and antivirus software company have heard about the "Dance of the Hillary" virus. And, there is no annoucement on the BBC about such a virus. This is why it is important that online users research social networking messages before sharing them with their friends and family. And, should always check with the popular or reputable news websites to verify the authenticity of messages before sharing, especially ones that talk about serious threats.

    Right, I too got the message and figured I'd check it out before forwarding as well. Glad to know it is fake.

    I always check everything before forwarding. It is all meant to spam and flood people with useless junk.

    Lol, I got a "Dance of the Hillary" text today... I wasn't going to forward it to begin with (as it would be spam), but I decided to check it out on the internet, and found that it was a hoax.
