Is it a virus? Is it a hoax? Apparently can’t find it on Snopes.com, Symantec, or McAfee yet. It’s worth mentioning right away and I’ll update this post soon as I know more. At this time, it appears to be a video that links to nothing and you’ll notice the “like” on Facebook from a friend doesn’t give you the option to comment on that like when you normally would be able to. (Suspicious already).
So if you get a link on your Facebook from a friend that says they like “OMG! Look what happens when FATHER catches DAUGHTER on her WEBCAM!… CLICK HERE TO SEE”, do not click on it and tell them to try and delete it from their profile. They may not even know it’s there. I can’t say exactly what it is yet, because I don’t know yet and don’t want to waste time researching when I can tell people to hold off for now until further notice. Just ignore or delete it. It’s possible it could be totally harmless and just a hoax that creates a huge commotion of people writing about it like I am now, and reposting over and over again that it’s a virus. Don’t tell everyone it’s a virus when it might not but, and don’t say it’s a hoax when it could be a virus, or maybe it’s legit. Anyway, you should be able to find out if something is a hoax or not first, before spreading the word, by looking at websites like McAffee or Symantec or even Snopes.com
Always confirm if something truly is a virus or hoax before spreading the word, and when you do spread the word, include a link to where you confirmed that it is a virus or hoax so the next person doesn’t have to research all over again. In this particular case, I’ve seen many people saying it’s a virus, spread the word and I see it repeated over and over with no reference to where it is confirmed. If you know a website that has details about this, please post the direct link in the comments below this article. Thanks and safe surfing everyone!
