Social Media Hoax: Is Tracy Morgan Dead? No. Stop Clicking.

In the wake of a major traffic accident that took the life of his friend and left him in critical condition, a social media hoax has gone viral claiming that Tracy Morgan is dead.

As Malwarebytes reports, the various links to the supposed video have users sharing the link to their entire friends list, installing a PUP (potentially unwanted program), downloading malware, or any combination thereof.

Today’s friendly Public Service Announcement: Stop clicking on sensational links. As one of our buddies puts it so simply…Don’t click…ahem…stuff. (And try to get your “news” from sources other than Facebook)

By the by, if someone asks you, “Is Tracy Morgan dead?” The answer is no. Mr. Morgan was recently released from Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital to undergo rehabilitation for his injuries.
