GLENDALE, Calif., May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- PandaLabs, Panda Security's malware analysis and detection laboratory, has approximately 30,000 videos on YouTube with comments containing links that point to a Web page designed to download malware. This is another example of how cyber-criminals are attacking popular Web 2.0 sites to distribute malware. Similar attacks have previously been seen, to a lesser extent, on sites including Digg.com and Facebook.

The comments are normally suggestive, claiming that the link will take users to a legal Web page with pornographic content. You can see an image here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/panda_security/3548358349/. "
