'System Warning Alert' Pop-Ups

'System Warning Alert' Pop-Ups Description

If you are a user who often browses dodgy Web pages, you may have come across the ‘System Warning Alert’ pop-ups. The authors of the ‘System Warning Alert’ pop-ups have made sure to design the alerts so that they resemble a genuine message by Windows. The pop-ups will claim that your computer has been compromised by a serious threat and the problem needs to be resolved as soon as possible.

To make this tactic more believable, the site that displays the fake Windows alert will play a sound and also block you from accessing the other tabs opened in your Web browser. This may trick some users into believing that the ‘System Warning Alert’ Pop-Ups are showing a legitimate message and that their PCs have been compromised by cyber crooks. The ‘System Warning Alert’ pop-ups require the users to fill in their login credentials – username and password. The fraudulent pop-ups also urge the target to call a phone number, which is meant to offer them technical support meant to combat the issue. The phone number associated with this tactic is 855-905-3994. We can assure you that this phone number is not associated with any legitimate technical support service that has your best interest at heart. The ‘System Warning Alert’ pop-ups are part of a complex online con, and you should keep your distance from these pop-ups at all costs. The fraudsters behind the ‘System Warning Alert’ Pop-Ups may require you to:

  • Pay for a subscription to a bogus technical support service.
  • Buy an expensive software suite that is meant to protect you from malware but is likely useless and overpriced.
  • Provide them with remote access to your system, which would allow them to lock your computer and blackmail you.

If you have come across the ‘System Warning Alert’ pop-ups, do not believe a word by the conmen who operate this online tactic. Avoid interacting with the pop-ups and close the website that displays them. If you want to ensure that there is no malware on your computer, use a reputable anti-virus solution to scan your system.
