Beware with video codec downloads….



Some time back I remember an article I had on vcodec not being a legitimate video codec. At the time there was some malware claiming to be vcodec and “required” to view some content…. well, posing as a codec download is a good way to trick people into downloading it seems and there are more out there that use the same trick. Sunbeltblog brings not one, but two fake codec sites to watch for today.


icodecpack.com
playercodec.net
movscodec.com

along with ….

dvdcodec(dot)net
emcodec(dot)com
emediacodec(dot)com
