Another bullet dodged by not having TikTok

TikTok itself isn’t vulnerable here.

This is a social engineering attack where they get you to download malware onto your computer by… navigating to GitHub and downloading an executable.

You'd first need to have friends, so don't worry.

Social media does not reflect the real world in the slightest.


TeaKingMac t1_iy87xzc wrote

Tiktok explicitly connects you to people who aren't your friends.

It's like Twitter with videos, not Facebook.

Why are idiots using this thing? Every time I hear about some "challenge" it's stupider than the last one? Are these fools that desperate to be sheep?


lionhart280 t1_iy62xzm wrote

No the challenge actually has little to do with this.

Its basically the opposite, the scammers target people on discord/tiktok/insta claiming they have a tool that lets you see people naked, they link you to it on their github, you blindly install the tool off github and.... its malware.

Well it’s impossible to get images of people naked by other means so can you really blame them? Naked people are hot and you want to see it!!

Sims 4 modding just got too real.

Well, that’s one vector that can be used to spread malware: stupid, desperate, horny kids

Tale as old as the internet.

Thank God for adblock and ublock, and all the other protections I have on my machine

Older than the internet. Hot female resistance fighters from France and Holland would lure Nazis into alleys for supposed trysts then stab them in the eye with an ice pick. Horny males are easy targets.


TeaKingMac t1_iy8nsxp wrote

Ice picks are a particularly serious form of malware

What’s it like being so much better than people who watch short video clips on their phones? Is your mom proud?


cittatva t1_iy7vshg wrote

Yeah but how many times have I found an interesting project on Reddit and installed it from a GitHub page?
