Fake Error Messages

Fake warning messages (sometimes referred to as fake error messages or fake security alerts), are deceptive notifications that usually appear in the form of pop-ups and/or a web page. These fake error messages are known to be associated with fraudulent security software such as rogue anti-spyware and rogue anti-virus applications.

Fake warning messages often pose as legitimate Windows alerts, stating that your computer is infected with malware, in order to intimidate you into performing a hasty download of a rogue anti-spyware program. Even attempting to close these fake warning messages may result in numerous others taking its place, or end up redirecting you to a rogue website, where a fake anti-spyware application may be automatically downloaded.

Fake error messages are used by many malware creators in an attempt to trick you into downloading potentially harmful programs.
