Pinterest virus is a sophisticated cyber infection, which attacks people through this social media channel. Once it manages to get inside the system, this virus becomes capable to steal victim's private information, so there is a great danger of losing banking details, various passwords and loggins. Additionally, it may be set to hijack your Pinterest's account and make malicious files appear on your profile. For example, it can share inappropriate images, scams or its copies in order to infect more PC users. If you want to avoid Pinterest virus, you should always make sure that you repin only these images that are stored on trustworthy sites. Of course, the most important thing is to make sure that you use updated anti-virus and anti-spyware programs running on your PC. 


Pinterest virus is distributed via tricky method, which includes special image files created to infect PCs with viruses when victims view them in their browsers. First of all, scammers store this malicious image on their website and start rerouting their victims to those sites with a help of browser hijackers. Once you fall for this campaign and pin the image, computer gets infected with malware. The biggest problem is that victim's friends may also start repinning that picture too because it appears on his/hers account. If after clicking on the image you have been redirected to unknown website, be aware that it can also be attacked by Pinterest virus. You should check your PC for malicious entries as soon as possible.


Once again, we recommend repinning only these pictures that are stored on reputable websites. If you have been tricked into clicking on malicious image, you must scan your PC with updated anti-spyware without any delay. In this case, you should rely on  STOPzilla or SpyHunter.
