A vulnerability in Microsoft’s security alerts could let hackers scam you.  

Who Is It Targeting: Microsoft Edge browser users 

What Is It:  Fake alerts that pop up, telling you that your computer has been compromised. 

What Are They After: A security flaw has been found in the alert system for Microsoft’s new browser, Edge. The system is supposed to tell users anytime they’re on a site or receive a message that contains phishing attempts or malware, but the alert mechanism is vulnerable to hacking. 

That means someone with the right know-how can change the message to say that your computer has been infected. Once the phony alert appears and you call the tech support number in the popup box, the scammers extort money to “fix” the problem that doesn’t exist in the first place. 

How Can You Avoid It:

  • Never fall for a tech support scam; if you receive a phone call, email, or popup message that your computer has been infected, it’s probably not true.

  • Keep your antivirus software installed and up-to-date to protect you from malware like this.

If you think you may be a victim of identity theft, contact the Identity Theft Resource Center for toll-free, no-cost assistance at (888) 400-5530. Find more information about current scams and alerts here.

Solution


If that doesn't work, for Edge, follow the instructions by Scott_Ki here:

For all other browsers, use the Task Manager to exit the browser. Reboot and see if the pop-up goes away.
