ok thanks. from what i read it could have done anything from download malware to steal your password to get your account banned so not really easy to know what really happened from doing that.

It's no malware involved. You're doing it YOURSELF. Look at the link Grinler posted, it tells you to spam youtube comments, your account is then suspended as a spammer.
