I've noticed that a lot of this stuff is aimed at kids. They love downloading customisations to Messenger, Google, cute wallpapers, fancy fonts, smilies etc etc etc and some of this stuff contains malware, spyware, scareware etc.
They download one of these things, click what appears to be something innocent and bang' they've got or it looks like they've got a virus. So then Dad who thought he had his security up to date, still gets conned into thinking maybe something still got through.
In some ways kids are very internet savvy. In others they're very naive!
