TechCrunch: Facebook ran ads for a fake ‘Clubhouse for PC’ app planted with malware

TechCrunch: Facebook ran ads for a fake ‘Clubhouse for PC’ app planted with malware. “Cybercriminals have taken out a number of Facebook ads masquerading as a Clubhouse app for PC users in order to target unsuspecting victims with malware, TechCrunch has learned. TechCrunch was alerted … to Facebook ads tied to several Facebook pages impersonating Clubhouse, the drop-in audio chat app only available on iPhones. Clicking on the ad would open a fake Clubhouse website, including a mocked-up screenshot of what the non-existent PC app looks like, with a download link to the malicious app.”
