Certain messages doing rounds on social media platforms say that a link with an image of two police officers arresting Donald Trump has been circulating online and warns users not to click the same because it is a Virus. The messages also say someone has been a victim of the virus and ask readers to forward the message to all their contact list. No, the ‘Donald Trump Arrested’ Virus warning message is not a fact.
It is a fact that scammers often target social media users with such catchy and ‘breaking’ headlines and they link to scam pages; sometimes they even contain malware/virus (see Related Stories section below). But as of this writing, there are no such scam pages or virus in the name of “Donald Trump arrested”. And of course, Donald Trump has not been arrested; the virus warning is a hoax. Earlier, similar messages doing rounds on social media warned about a video titled ‘Sonia Disowns Rahul‘ as a dangerous virus that formats your mobile device or can harm your systems. Another one warned about a video called the “Dance of the Pope,” saying it is a very dangerous virus that formats your mobile, leaving it to factory defaults. Nonetheless, it is wise to be careful before clicking on such ‘breaking’ or ‘shocking’ stories.
