YouTube videos may be injurious to your PC health

I recently came across an article at Websense, which indicates the potential use of YouTube videos downloaded onto your PC for installing malware and viruses.

When you download and run an application file, cleverly disguised as a video file, your browser opens a video but in the background it also connects to its another webserver, which uploads a few Trojan Horses in to your machine with the primary objective of stealing your valuable information.

Websense has also upoladed a video about it on YouTube here.
