Fake MS alert
« on: Thursday, 06 July, 2023 @ 14:51:20 »
Beware of fake Microsoft ‘spyware alert’ pop-ups on your computer
Tech support scam claims your device has been compromised by a virus

Scammers are impersonating Microsoft in pop-ups claiming your computer has been infected with spyware.

These pop-ups appear out of the blue on your screen and ask you to call a phone number for support. If you do this, you’ll be contacting a scammer who will encourage you to download remote access software, allowing them to take control of your computer.

If a pop-up appears on your screen, don’t call any phone numbers or click on any links.
