Malware: Internet Security Alert

Recommended Posts

Hours after two successful scans had bright red full screen malware with following: "Internet Security Alert! Code: 055BCCAC9FEC"

URL begins: https://muitomasjhs.info/

lengthy string follows above

Phone number to call to request help from Microsoft was (888)374-9888

Normal actions to close ineffective but able to close Chrome from taskbar.

What action is needed to clear and block future infection? If logs are needed will need instructions.

Clear and reset your browser and be done with the advertisement.  Yep, that's all that it is, a fake scareware advertisement, aimed to get you to call them on the phone so they can scare you more and gain access to your computer.
