Do you know what Network Security Breach Tech Support Scam is?
If you have found a legitimate-looking Windows OS window placed over your Desktop, you must have encountered Network Security Breach Tech Support Scam. No doubt it is the one that has opened this window on your Desktop if the warning it contains claims that suspicious activity has been detected and “Due to having a Network Security Breach your Microsoft Windows got de-activated.” Users are asked to enter the Product Key to fix the problem. We can assure you that the screen opened on your Desktop is fake, so we see no reasons why you should enter your Windows Product Key. Do not try to contact the support by calling them either because you will not receive the help needed. Instead, go to get rid of Network Security Breach Tech Support Scam yourself so that you could use your computer normally again. This scam is not an ordinary program. Instead, it is a harmful infection, but it seems that it can be erased through Control Panel. We know one thing for sure – you cannot let it stay because you could not access any of your programs or perform ordinary activities.
Network Security Breach Tech Support Scam will try to convince you that there are problems you need to go to fix right away. As mentioned in the first paragraph, you will be told that your Windows OS has been deactivated due to suspicious activity detected on your computer. We are sure it is not true because the warning you see on your screen is completely fabricated. According to our malware researchers, cyber criminals behind this scam only want to get the license key of your Windows OS or simply try to convince you to dial the provided telephone number 1-866-324-2085 (another telephone number might be used as well). Do not enter the product key and, additionally, do not even think about dialing the number you see because you will contact cyber criminals. They will try to sell you unnecessary software and services. Also, they might try to steal certain personal details about you. Last but not least, it is very likely that the fake window will stay on your Desktop even after you make a call and pay for the service.
