It has been reported that pornhub has been hit by hack which means that internet users who visit pornhub could have contracted a malicious virus. This secret virus runs like an advert on a free pornography site and has been running for over a year. It works by secretly entering people’s computer and having their system taken over, without the knowledge of the user. This problem has been running quietly for over a year though effort has been made to shut it down as soon as it was discovered but it is now obvious that the shutdown was not of a success. This malware could spread its damages across the internet.
The virus advert will pose itself as if it is updating a browser or an operating system, once clicked on will install itself automatically. As the virus contaminates a system, it incurs debt by clicking automatically on fake ads on behalf of the user, it could get worse by taking from the users data (increasing mobile data consumption) and using the mobile user’s access to commit fraud on the internet. It can also steal information. This hack could come from other sites but porn site visitors are more vulnerable as so many adults visit the sites and will be less likely to report such attacks as not to expose their little secret.
If you’re not already infected with this deadly virus on your mobile device please be not a victim with the aid of this information.
