Brad Pitt Is Dead! Another Hoax on Social Media.

The latest celebrity hoax that’s going around is the story that Brad Pitt died.  Your BBB® wants to affirm that Brad Pitt is alive and well.  The hoax says that he died in a shooting range suicide after the announcement of his divorce from Angelina Jolie.

Unfortunately, if you were to click on any links that offer more information about his passing, the only thing that may be dead is your computer.  With these hoaxes, more often than not, the links are connected to malicious software that will either compromise your identity or cause your computer to be rendered useless without the aid of a technician to restore it.
