According to a social media message that is currently circulating in French and English, you should not accept a video called “Dance of the Dad” because it is a virus that will format your cell phone.
The message asks you to pass on the information about this “very dangerous” virus to your contact list so that people who receive it won’t think it is just a joke. Supposedly, the virus warning was “broadcast on the radio today”.
However, the claims in the message are untrue. There is no such virus. Nor are there any valid security alerts about a threat like the one described. The supposed warning is just a mutated version of an old hoax that warned people not to open a video called “the dance of the Pope”.
In fact, there have been several versions of the hoax in recent years. Another widespread variant substituted “Hillary” for the Pope but was otherwise almost identical.
If this silly hoax comes your way, do not share it with others. Spreading invalid warnings about non-existent computer security threats is counterproductive and will help nobody.
If you do receive it, let the person who posted it know that the message is just a hoax.
