'Best Video' scam on Twitter dropped malware | Security - CNET News

Sign of the times…

Twitter users were hit with another attack over the weekend featuring tweets reading "Best Video" and a link to a Web site that downloads malware, a security firm said on Monday.

The Web site, with a .ru (Russia) domain, purports to show an embedded YouTube video. Instead, the page downloads a malicious PDF that contains a "flurry of exploits" and if successful downloads fraudware that displays a fake security warning to try to get people to pay money, according to Kaspersky's Viruslist.com blog.
