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!
