Fake Anti Virus Warning

Post  Ambrosia on Wed Dec 09, 2009 11:37 am

During this past week I've been experiencing a fake anti virus scan that pop up while i was browsing basilmarket/HS.

basicly, the pop up tells you that you are at risk of getting virus and insist on scanning your computer; however, if you pay closer attention, it's not really a scan but rather a web page that decides to look like an anti virus program.

After the scanning (or what they claimed as their scanning) it turns out u have load of virus and need to delete immediately.

I am not 100% sure but i believe that if you do click on any of these instead of getting virus clear out, you will just get infected by virus instead Mad

Just to put it up there for you guys Shocked

I recommend adblock plus for firefox, stops almost all pop-ups, as well as blocking on-screen ads on most web pages
