Emma Watson Adobe Flash Trojan dropper in circulation

Emma Watson Adobe Flash malware in circulation. The latest of these videos purportedly features popular English actress Emma Watson and users from various websites are redirected to a very expertly made fake YouTube pages where the video is supposedly hosted, complete with comments, “Like” and “Share” buttons and related videos on its right.

But unfortunately for all those who fell for the lure, a click on the Play button or any other link does not start the (nonexistent) video. Instead, the target is asked to update its Adobe Flash Player in order to be able to view it. And the offered file (scandsk.exe) – actually a Trojan dropper – is currently detected by only 17 percent of the AV solutions employed by VirusTotal.
