The hackers are getting very good at making us look silly by making their hacks look like real software, a real Microsoft Window or software Window – you hit OK and that is when you get infected. I have had a few people get infected this way and it’s not easy to fix. Anyone can fall for this and have! What makes these so difficult for the typical user is that it stops you from running your REAL anti-virus software or getting on the internet at all except to a specific page asking for money to solve your issue.
HOW-TO GEEK had a great article today that showed a few screen shots of those Hacks as well as a few solutions to solve your issue. Like I have they have had many articles around this issue and they have included links in the article if you wanted to read more. On my BLOG if you look at Security FOLDER at the top, I have my posts listed.
TAKE A READ – interesting stuff!
