Facebook malware 2014: Nicki Minaj Leaked *** Tape malware

Earlier in 2013 the same Nicki Minaj *** tape got leaked on Facebook and it seems that the criminals are going to try the same trick again. Today we received an message that Nicki Manaj had leaked a new tape, the only thing you had to do to watch it - was to share the Facebook message and so it began. 

As you can see in the picture above the picture is edited with an "Play" button that will trick the users into believing that it is an video that they can view directly. Once it has been clicked the user is forwarded to an external website which then will exploit the user in a couple of possible ways: 

1. Forces the user to share the malicious link

2. Forces the user to use the malicious application 

3. Users will be exploited in the future. 

As you can see above, the user that replied to the video is asking if she needs to Share the video first before she can view it. Oh, dear users be aware!
