Apparently cyber bullies are crashing “High School Musical.”
Panda Security today said it’s finding all sorts of malware in downloadable HSM songs and videos that are being found through online searches. (As opposed to the material delivered by the Seattle-based Disney Internet Group.)
From the release:
When users run one of these fake files they may expect to hear songs from the film or see a video clip, yet all that will happen is that the computer will be infected by VB.ADQ, the Agent.KGR Trojan, the adware Koolbar, or another strain of malicious code. Some of these might display images related to the film when they are run, but this is just to avoid arousing suspicion.
The company advises people to “take care when downloading files, and in particular, to check the file extension, as many of the malicious files have the extension ‘.exe,,’ which is rarely the case with a genuine music or video file.”
