Harry Potter Targeted by Malware

A new report has been released by PC Tools in which "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" has been targeted by cybercriminals.

"Fans are baited with text like: 'Watch "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" online free'. What appears to be a legitimate looking website then redirects you to a video offer which prompts you to download and install the additional "streamviewer". The streamviewer, however, is installing malware."

Take care and think before you link!
