Now there are different ways of watching movies around the world, but many download pirated movies from websites. Cyber security experts say, in most cases, movie download sites cannot be relied upon because they are full of malware or viruses. On the eve of the 12th Academy Award or Oscar announcement, Russian cyber security firm Kaspersky has released a list of the most dangerous photographs nominated for an Oscar. According to a Forbes report quoting Kaspersky researchers, experts found 122 malware to download Oscar-nominated images. To them, the most dangerous movie is called ‘Joker’.
According to a Forbes report, Kaspersky found 3 malware in the Oscar-nominated picture, and six of the malware were found in the ‘Joker’ image. Benedict Cumberbatch starring ‘3’ is the second most dangerous film on the list. Malware has been found in 25 of these. The Irishman, directed by Martin Scorsese, is third on the list. It contains 3 malicious files.
Researchers at Kaspersky have urged those who download or view these images from unreliable sources online. Clicking on the malicious links contained in these image files can damage the device. Researchers at Kaspersky have also provided some security tips for downloading movies online.
Researchers say that before downloading the movie online, Oscar-nominated photos must be reviewed. Do not click on the links that are asked to preview the pictures in advance. Usually movie downloads have .avi, .mkv or .mp4 extensions. However, do not download movies that have .exe files. In addition to viewing the sites from which you download the movie, you should check the spelling of the URL format and company name.
