Someone just posted a comment on the WeUseCoins video saying they had a "coin generator" on their channel. If you went to their channel you found a link to a downloadable piece of software. I don't know if this software would try to steal your wallet or just contain a general trojan/malware, but I thought I'd mention it.

I've since removed the comment, blocked the user from the channel and reported the video with the link as scam/fraud. YouTube removed the video immediately. All this happened within a few seconds of the comment being posted (I get email notifications about comments on the video.)

If somebody wants to analyze the malware, PM me and I'll get you the link to the channel and the download link.

We are going to see more and better Bitcoin-related malware, so be wary about downloads of any kind.

Don't think so, different style. This one is a YouTube-focused scam, aside from Bitcoin, they're also targeting ShareCash users and probably others. (They also have spam bots that post comments on the videos and vote them up to make it look more realistic.)

Also, the malware is hosted on fileups.net instead of github.

there never had been the easiest way to get rich...many sites provide software that uploads malware and virus and some will say to complete offers...at last all are same..Scam just a waste of time

OK, there is no argument there.
I do have one question though.

Have you revived this post just to tell us that?
There is another, more recent (today's) post that talks about Bitcoin "generators".
Why didn't you just post there?
