Blog: Consumers Fall for Fake A.V. After Getting Fake Alert

This is a very common story. You are toodling along, reading your email, surfing the web, updating your Facebook status when you get an alert on your screen. It says, "Your computer is infected" or something similar. The alert looks very official, like it came from your operating system. There's a button to click, so you do. Suddenly, a cool looking scan appears on your screen, showing you progress as it searches your system and finds several viruses and other malware. You think, "How can this be happening? I have security software on my computer?? Did it fail me?"

Re: Blog: Consumers Fall for Fake A.V. After Getting Fake Alert

Nice post. It really is as simple as that. Social engineering to worry people into taking risks.

I just wish that the average computer user would take more notice of online security and be more careful of what they click on.

But I think thats wishful thinking.
