Youtube risk

Hi guys.


In Palo Alto Firewall 7.1.8 version, Youtube-base application is categorized with risk 4, because is Used by Malware and Has Known Vulnerabilities. I try to search for information about it but I couldn't find it yet. There is some information in, but it doesn't show the evidence regarding the malware and vulnerabilities in youtube.


Could some one provide information that supports the malware and vulnerabilities found in youtube?


Thanks a lot.

This thread was started in the Community feedback area, so it was moved to "Threat  & Vulnerability" area.


As far as YouTube vulnerabilities are concerned, I was able to find this information out about Cross site scripting and YouTube.

What I know apparently some users reported that there is a scam going around that uses the YouTube email. Sending an  invitation to be moderator of some other account and then it doesnt show the actuall URL ut shortened one.
