Jean(eanjay) Youtube virus rumor? (3) RE: Youtube virus rumor? 26 Jan 12


It wouldn't be surprising if someone was trying to disrupt YouTube in this way. There have been changes recently to the look of Youtube channels. Personally I like the new look and adopted it quite quickly. It will become compulsory in March and people have been campaigning to stop that happening; not everyone likes it. Also, YouTube is now owned by Google and on March 1st there is a new Google privacy policy coming into place which is causing outrage.

I never use the links in YouTube emails to get to YouTube or my inbox. I always go to YouTube via my browser. Also, I never click any links unless I am confident that they are safe. I get phishing emails from supposed banks and in Facebook I get requests via the games and apps that are clearly hackers. The app concerned is aware of this and trying to stop it but to be honest I am extremely vigilant with everything.
