    There is a trojan email purporting to be from a facebook
    friend, inviting you to view a video. The link takes you
    to a fake YouTube site. The site then asks you to update
    flash, and when you do, THAT is when the virus is installed.

    HOWEVER, "youtu.be" is 100% legit. It's a shortened URL
    'alias' for "youtube.com" and owned by YouTube/Google.
    
    ALWAYS look at the link. Kevin's link contains the main
    URL of "youtube.com" and the "youtu.be" is part of the
    data string.
    
    If you type "youtu.be" into your browser, it redirects
    to "www.youtube.com".
