You should never trust these kinds of alerts, nothing they state is true, unless the problem is entirely unconnected. If an adware is indeed responsible, expect pretty invasive advertisements.

The advertisements are not dangerous, and as long as you do not fall for the scam, you’ll be alright. However, if you did call them, scammers will try to trick you into paying a lot of money for a service you have no need for, or more serious malicious software could be installed, and that could lead to stolen private data. You should never call the numbers in these questionable warnings, and you should be cautious about who you give remote access to your OS. You can be calm that this infection the pop-up is cautioning you about it is not real, and that your system is safe.

What does it do

Since no one would voluntarily install ad-supported applications, it usually is distributed through freeware. You will normally run into these kinds of items as extra offers, and while you can opt to not install them, a lot of people end up installing them since they do not notice them. Instead, pick Advanced or Custom mode. Those extra items will be visible in Advanced, so just unmark the boxes. We advise that you always uncheck everything because if you were not correctly informed about their installation, they don’t belong on your system. Pay close attention to what type of applications are permitted to install onto the computer, and how you do it, as otherwise, you will constantly end up having to terminate Cyber Security Scam or similar.

All of these kinds of warnings are identical, they all want people to believe that their OS is experiencing some kind of issues. It can be warning you about a virus, system error, licensing issues, etc, scammers will create all kinds of scenarios. The alert will also caution you about data loss or leak of personal data because these types of ploys are effective with less experienced users. The alert will state that if you want to resolve the indicated problems and prevent data loss, you must dial the provided number, where con artists would mess with your PC and charge you a couple of hundred dollars for it. One thing to keep in mind is that legitimate software or security company would never ask users to call them. For example, if Apple or Microsoft is requesting you to call them, you are obviously being con artists. The scammers would remotely connect to your computer, pretend to find some issue, very quickly explain it to you and provide a way to repair everything, for which of course, you would be charged. Tech-support scams are quite obvious but because less-computer knowledgeable people are not aware of them, they might fall for them. It is not difficult to imagine why somebody may fall for these scams because if they’re constantly appearing, they may look pretty legitimate. However, even if the alert appears fully legitimate, you need to still look into it using a reliable search engine. Most results will contain comments from users warning to be careful of these con artists. So do not be afraid of overlooking the warnings while you deal with the problem.
