⚠️ SCAM ALERT! ⚠️ There are ads on Google that link to a fake version of OBS with malware. Only download OBS from our official site, http://obsproject.com, and never click any ads claiming to be OBS.
@tio Except Linux isn't the good place to go for streaming games, because it stays less user-friendly and game aren't always playable on it. I agree the repository way is great, but not the solution in my opinion.
@HakenTrigger This is not the first time something like that happened. Users of a cryptocurrency wallet have already fallen for that kind of scam: https://www.theverge.com/2021/11/4/22763015/cryptocurrency-fake-wallet-phishing-scam-google-ads-phantom-metamask
I remember reading about something similar for Signal, where ads redirected users to a phishing website with compromised download links, but I can't find the source anymore.
@dreeg It happens often, but like each time it's good to try to tell vulnerable people to always double-check.
