Half Of Internet Users Have Been Hit With Secret Porn Virus

Sure, sure, we know you don’t look at porn on the internet. But you might want to tell your friends, who certainly do.

That’s because nearly half of internet users on Android devices face the threat of clicker/WAP subscription malware when they access adult content online, according to a Kaspersky Lab study.

According to The Star, the virus creates pop-up adverts and signs up the user to paid services, where the money is immediately removed from online accounts.

Per Kaspersky:

 “The banking Trojans lock the screen of the device and show a message stating that illegal content (usually child porn) has been detected on the device, and the device has been locked.”

Of course, this news is coming from a company that makes internet security software, so you probably need to take it with a grain of salt.

That or get an iPhone.
