The 'Error #0x0072ee7' security alert is not associated with legitimate cybersecurity services. The 'Error #0x0072ee7' notification is manufactured by con artists who are interested in feeding the users with false information and guiding them to pay hundreds of dollars for an unnecessary technical support service. The 'Error #0x0072ee7' notifications can be found on phishing pages that may include a screenshot of Google Chrome loading in the background. The images accompanying the 'Error #0x0072ee7' warnings are altered to resemble legitimate alerts from Microsoft and Google, but you should not fall for their tricks. The lack of a green lock icon in top left corner coupled with the inability to close the 'Error #0x0072ee7' new tab should be enough for users to spot the tactic.

The leading Web browser developers are working with AV companies to limit the access to phishing pages and insecure content on the Internet. However, the fight against technical support tactics is a continuous effort, and Web surfers should take the time to familiarize themselves with the modern tactics. Usually, the pages that offer misleading information feature a 'pop-up loop' script that prevents the user from leaving the page and switching to another tab. The phishing pages often use images from their legitimate counterparts to confuse users and make them think they are on the right online banking portal. Cybersecurity experts advise users to avoid making calls to the support line listed on the 'Error #0x0072ee7' pop-up windows. The 888-779-0939 toll-free phone number, as well as others, may be displayed on the 'Error #0x0072ee7' phishing pages.
