What type of content is presented on xxx-white-tube.net?^

xxx-white-tube.net belongs to the category of the websites that spread trojans in the guise of video codecs.

Websites like xxx-white-tube.net are promoted through forum posts, blog comments, message boards or any other web pages that allow free, unprotected submission of text. Another method of codec websites' promotion is using doorway pages that redirect the user.

Hundreds of one-page doorway websites can be used as jump-bridges that usually lead to the same target website. If a web server is hacked, such doorway pages can be placed on the web server even without the webmaster's knowledge. The user can come across a codec website in the search engine results due to the use of this aggressive type of promotion.

Usually, a codec website looks like a list of videos similar to YouTube. When the user tries to play a video, a message box appears. It informs the user that a required video codec is missing and the user needs to download and install it. The sequence of the dialog windows is organized in such a way that the user is tricked into downloading the executable file.

You should NEVER RUN THE DOWNLOADED FILE. DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY. For sure, it contains a trojan such as Vundo or Zlob.
