Cybersecurity experts from Kaspersky uncovered new malware that logs into the YouTube accounts of compromised users and uploads a video to their channel, which distributes RedLine Infostealer.

A victim, ideally a PC gamer, finds a YouTube video on cracks, or cheats, for one of their favorite games: either FIFA, Final Fantasy, Forza Horizon, Lego Star Wars, or Spider-Man. In the video’s description are links that claim to hold those cracks and cheats which, in fact, host multiple malware bundled together.

I am using Youtube, it works fine, but there are too many ads
