Celebrity sex tapes are nothing new. From Pamela Anderson to Paris Hilton to Kim Kardashian and others, the public’s thirst for sex tapes sometimes made without and almost always distributed without the knowledge of the celebrity is always great. The latest of the sex tapes to hit the Internet is a sex tape that apparently was done surreptitiously of former WWE wrestling champion Hulk Hogan who is shown in a thirty minute tape having sex with a woman who has been identified by some as the ex-wife of Hogan’s best friend. A number of legitimate websites are showing a one minute portion of the tape, but you can probably expect soon that the full thirty minute tape will be appearing on the Internet. But beware. Scammers, as they have done with other celebrity nude shots or sex tapes, most recently with the topless shots of Kate, the Duchess of Windsor will be sending out emails, Facebook messages and tweets that lure you to phony websites that when you click on the link necessary to watch the tape will download dangerous keystroke logging malware on your computer that can steal your information and make you a victim of identity theft.
Never trust links that come in emails, tweets or Facebook messages. Even if they come from friends who you trust, you must remember my motto, “trust me you can’t trust anyone.” Your friends may have had their email account, Twitter account or Facebook account hacked into by an identity thief and the message that you are getting may be from the identity thief, not your friend. And that message may well contain keystroke logging malware. In addition, even if your real friends pass on a link, they may be unwittingly passing on a link that they do not realize will cause you to become a victim of identity theft. The best course of action, if you are intent upon seeing the video is to go only to websites that you know are legitimate.
