Dear everyone in the Fandomstuck, Fandombound, Hetastuck and your respective fandom tags,
They’re back. This time they’ve tagged their virus posts with Dr Who, Supernatural, Homestuck, Hetalia, Hetastuck, Fandomstuck, Sherlock and other fandoms.
Be on the lookout for these! They’re images ripped from YouTube videos and people’s art that were made to look like actual videos. However, if you click them you will get a virus. Please warn your friends about this as it can cause serious harm to Tumblr users’ computers!
If you see a post like this DO NOT CLICK ON ANYTHING! Ignoring it is your best option! Clicking on the blog or the video tumbnail WILL give you a virus!
- If the thumbnail has the time stamp and loading bar from YouTube at the bottom (especially with a time over an hour)
- If you hover your mouse over the thumbnail and the click-through link resembles “is.dg/[Letters+Numbers]”
- If you can move your mouse over the video thumbnail and the image does not change
- If the user who has posted it has a URL resembling “Name+Numbers+Name+Numbers” POST!
- If the post has a description that contains key prases like “I don’t own anything” or some words do not have spaces between them
Please check any videos before clicking on them to be safe!
Please be careful and warn anyone browsing their fandom tags! Signal boosting is appreciated, as this can affect many Tumblr users. Get the word out and protect your followers and friends!
