I'm using Mozilla Firefox Version 2.0
It seems that for some videos, it requires you to download something called Codec
I read some reviews from Mcafee Siteadvisor. The reviewers said that that particular video is trying to install malware onto their hardware. And also, another reviewer said that Norton picked up Bloodhound.exploit.56.
Is Youtube safe? My 2 kids watch videos during their freetime (since its the holidays), and I also do admit that I watch videos from youtube too.
I've already reported the paticular video to the youtube staff.
So in conclusion, is youtube safe?
Sorry if I had made any spelling mistake, I'm really sleepy. I'm turning in in an hour's time or so...
Norton's Website states that:
Bloodhound.Exploit.56 is a heuristic detection for the Microsoft Windows Graphics Rendering Engine WMF Format Unspecified Code Execution Vulnerability (as described in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS06-001).
Note: Bloodhound.Exploit.56 is designed to identify behavior that would occur if the Microsoft Windows Graphics Rendering Engine WMF Format Unspecified Code Execution Vulnerability (as described in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS06-001) is exploited. As Symantec becomes aware of changes to the exploit code, or if files are identified that trigger this detection but are not malicious, the detection is refined. It is important to keep your definitions up to date to ensure the most complete protection.
