Was just cruising around the web today and it appeared that a Microsoft Essentials Virus Warning popped up on my screen. It named a virus, and adware and a trojan that had been detected and prompted me to run a clean on them with the typical Microsoft Essentials Virus Popup Dialog provided. But the trick was this wasn't a Microsoft Essentials Warning at all, simply a fake one in the browser window. God only knows what horrors would have happened if I had clicked that. I closed the browser window and ran a REAL virus scan. Guess what, no viruses. Now I, and I'm sure most of us in here are are sophisticated enough not to fall for anything like this; but how about your less wary friends and relatives? This looked very real and could fool a lot of people. Maybe this has been around for a long time but I'm online all day every day and it's the first time I've seen this one using Microsoft Essentials. Warn your friends.
