Youtube Malware?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone:

I noticed recently in the Google app on my phone (the one that curates all of the news/weather/local information) that there has been a recent, long string of youtube videos being processed by the search function. The searches usually follow the syntax of:

[video code] -site:youtube.com

Does anyone know of any adware/malware/viruses that cycle through various Youtube video id's in the background (my guess is that they are looking to get more video views)? Could this be the videos that I click on in the news feed section of the app?

If anyone has any ideas as to what this might be, that would be great.

Also, I've attached a screenshot for reference.
