Yesterday I went to Youtube and watched a few videos. A while later I went back to watch some more.
But when I clicked on a video it took me to a page that looked like a youtube page but everything was slightly different and exaggerated.
I have clicktoflash so I normally get a blank window until I load the video.
This time I got a blank window and text in “big blue and red letters” saying I needed to update my flash.
I have SWF and Flv player which is up to date as are all my apps.
I did not click the link to upgrade as it looked like a scam.
I shut down the computer overnight and today youtube is back to normal.
Was this a hijacking? What can I do to stop it?
I have firewall enabled and all security settings recommended.
I also have iantivirus which picked up nothing.
