This turned up today: new fake codec scam masquerading as a VLC video player plugin error message. In reality, clicking on the “install” button will result in a download of the Security Essentials rogue security product.
In the event you stumble across it and just must watch 10,000 adult movies (or whatever), go to the real VideoLAN plug-in download site here: http://www.videolan.org/
If you are “unwise” enough to fall for the scam, you’ll get this: the Security Essentials rogue (GFI Sunbelt Rogue Blog here: http://rogueantispyware.blogspot.com/2010/02/security-essentials-2010.html)
Thanks Patrick.Thanks Adam.
