Scareware Alert

Apparently there’s quite a bit of Scareware going around 😦

Scareware – Malicious (bad) software intended to scare users into paying for software which can fix their computer’s issues.  The computer issues referenced are always fabrications.  Usually presents as a pop up or other window that lists a generic antivirus name and states an unwieldy amount of virus infections.

I’ve had around 6 computers come in with scareware issues since Monday.  Keep those antivirus programs updated!
