"Oh my god, I just found a 'Facebook/Whatever Account Hacker' on YouTube?" No.

There is no such thing as an "Account Hacker". If you've downloaded one off YouTube or anywhere else and you've run it, congratulations, you've successfully infected your computer.


Er ma gherd, infected?! Leik viruss!? Yes.
Okay, first off, do NOT download ANYTHING off of YouTube unless you're certain it's clean. Even if you're certain it's clean, scan it before you run it.
This is me when I see a Minecraft/Facebook/Gmail account hacker:

Simply because THEY DO NOT EXIST.
It's pathetic how many people fall victims to these though.


How to spot a fake program:

Spotting a fake program is pretty easy.
1. READ THE COMMENTS: This is probably the biggest tell of a fake program. If the uploader has disabled comments or 95% of the comments are "OMFG THIS WORKS DOPE DAYUM 100%", it's probably fake.
Even if there is ONE person who says it's infected, DO NOT RUN IT.

2. CHECK THE RATINGS: This is pretty important as well. Videos with disabled ratings are most likely scams. Stay away from them.

3. CHECK THE UPLOADER'S CHANNEL: Look for other videos from the same guy. I don't have to write a guide on how to judge people, you're on the internet.

GODDAMN IT, I think I caught a virus, now what?


If you still managed to get yourself infected, you probably deserve it.
Meh, being the nice guy I am, I'll still help you.

1. Download and install Malwarebytes: Free anti-malware from here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/
2. Scan your entire system and delete/quarantine whatever detections you get.
3. Don't fucking download a virus again.

Yeah, that's pretty much it.
