It is spooky, crazy, insane, shocking and malicious. A video is being shared on Facebook titled ”[Shocking Video] This weird forest makes people kill themselves…’. This video is using the documentary about the mountain in Japan which is used by a lot of people to commit suicide.
The story is true but the video which is being shared by the cybercriminals will install a malicious application on the victims computer.
Before the victim can watch the video, the user needs to share the malicious webpage on their social media networks.
Once they have shared the website they will be redirected to another malicious website which wil serve them a revenue earning survey scam or a malicious application which needs to be installed.
These hoaxes and schemes are setup by cybercriminals as they earn them a fast revenue. Be aware of these schemes on Facebook!
