“There was a dangerous try to get an access to your personal logins” is one of many scams users might encounter. Typically, such fake messages are displayed to them when they enter a suspicious website by accident, get redirected to the domain that contains the fake alert by clicking on some kind of untrustworthy link, or install an untrustworthy program, usually an advertising-supported application or adware on their computers. Such scams as “There was a dangerous try to get an access to your personal logins” are created by cyber criminals for one purpose. They expect that users will dial a telephone number the fabricated message contains once they see it displayed to them. Unfortunately, many users do exactly what cyber criminals behind the scam want them to do. Calling the indicated telephone number is the worst decision users who encounter this scam can make because they contact crooks instead of helpful technicians. This is the beginning of all the problems.
Even though users can find “There was a dangerous try to get an access to your personal logins” displayed to them after opening the website that contains it by mistake or by clicking on a malicious link, there are still more people who see the fabricated message periodically, meaning that they have an untrustworthy application installed on their computers. It might have any name, and it might be located anywhere on the system, but it is very likely that this program is an advertising-supported application. Some users download and install these programs themselves, but, of course, they do not know that it is an adware program, whereas others install them next to other programs, usually free applications they download off the Internet. In other words, applications that might be linked with the “There was a dangerous try to get an access to your personal logins” scam should be mainly spread in software bundles. Users can still prevent untrustworthy applications from infiltrating their computers illegally. Security specialists have several pieces of advice for those users who want to be safe:
1) Keep your PC updated
2) Turn on Windows Firewall
3) Install powerful security software
4) Ignore random pop-ups, error messages, and email attachments
5) Think twice before installing any new software from a source you do not trust 100%
6) Behave cautiously online
