Pintrest... A new way to spread Malware?


Recommended Posts

Hello Folks!

So my Fiancee was browsing around on Pintrest the other night, and she clicked a pin to show it in a bigger view. Then after you have the option to click the pin again and it will take you to the website associated with that pin. As soon as she clicked and her computer navigated to that website she saw a quick download flash across her screen and then it went black. When it came back on a moment later she had the FBI Moneypak Virus and she wasn't able to go into any recovery or safemode with the exception of the command prompt.

Really just be careful with what you see posted and what you're clicking. If possible try and have some sort of virus protection that can scan the webpages you're about to visit and give you a heads up.
