Windows 7: Screenshot: FakeAV/AS

Screenshot: FakeAV/AS

Hi everyone!!

A friend called me last night somewhat frantic about his computer acting up. I connected remotely via teamviewer to take a look. Using ComboFix and Malwarebytes the fake antimalware program was easily removed. Now I've seen several of these types over the years with varying names, poor grammar, empty threats, etc..... However this is the first time I've seen this specific one. This is quite possibly the funniest wording I've ever seen on one of these and thought I'd share.

Yeah, that is the unfortunate truth. People see the red X along with "critical" or "warning" and just click without reading the message...
