Anne Curtis who plays the role of ‘Dyesebel’ on its latest remake in ABS-CBN has been the subject of entertainment news in the last  couple of days after being stung by a box jellyfish when taping the said primetime series.

While the actress has been reported to have suffered from rashes all over her body and was in pain, she’s now on the road to recovery. She even tweeted to update her fans who have been sending ‘get well soon’ messages.

However, the news may have been so popular that spammers are now leveraging on it. In Facebook, a video spam with a screenshot of the actress’ body is widely being shared on numerous accounts.

Similar to the other Facebook video spams that we have reported last month, the spammers are only using the trending news and videos so users can ‘like’ their page before playing it. In the end, the victims won’t be able to play the supposed trending video.

Facebook users are being warned to be cautious when clicking on trending video links in the social network. Also, users are advised to update their antivirus software both on their computer and on their smartphones/tablets to continuously protect them from all types of web threats. If you don’t have an antivirus yet, download Titanium Maximum Security (for Windows; for Mac) or Trend Micro Mobile Security (for Android; for iOS).
