How Cyber Criminals Infect Victims

Here's a video by Panda Security that shows you how easy it is for hackers to bind a trojan/virus program with any legitimate programs that are available at P2P/File Sharing/Torrent services. In this demo, the trojan's goal is to hijack a banking web sites that you visit and change the login screen to steal your information.

Seriously people, don't download pirated software! Make sure you are using current anti-virus program and and make sure that it is updated regularly. If you're going to download programs, make sure you get it from the company's official web site or from trusted sites like Download.com.



Scary, I know. Let's all be safe and practice "safe downloading."
