’844-763-6050′ Pop-Ups

Posted: January 4, 2016

The '844-763-6050' pop-ups are technical support tactics for gaining access to your computer, taking money or collecting information. As with other technical support tactics, Web surfers being self-aware of potentially endangering actions can guard themselves against the bulk of this threat's consequences. However, removing the '844-763-6050' pop-ups may require that you use dedicated PC security tools with threats or adware-scanning features.

A Computer Checkup with a Threatening Bill of Health

The '844-763-6050' pop-ups are part of a campaign with evidence of being ongoing since the middle of last year. In addition to the '844-763-6050' pop-ups that are symptomatic of installed adware, associated con artists also have been seen conducting 'cold calls' to computer users. The phone numbers used for these attacks are likely lost through other methods, although malware experts have yet to track down the primary tactic at use. Whether PC users suffer from cold calls or the '844-763-6050' pop-ups, they always are asked to call the promoted hotline for technical assistance in repairing their computers.

Some of the symptoms described by the '844-763-6050' pop-ups, such as general system slowdowns, may have associations with the adware and threats responsible for the presence of these pop-up attacks. PC users following the recommendations of the '844-763-6050' pop-ups may subject themselves to various risks although malware researchers do find the following ones to be the most common:

  • You may be asked to purchase a fraudulent PC repair service or system-cleaning product, such as a Registry scanner.
  • Con artists also may try to conduct system changes that grant them access to your computer through a remote desktop. Although these changes don't necessarily require using threats, they may create security issues that are equal to having installed a backdoor Trojan, and allow con artists to change your settings, view your files or install new programs.

Hanging Up the Phone on Your '844-763-6050' pop-ups

Tactics conducted through the '844-763-6050' pop-ups and similar attacks like the 'Your computer has adware/spyware virus' Pop-Up and the 'Security Help Page Pop-Up', may focus on collecting your identity credentials, passwords or money. The '844-763-6050' pop-ups campaign has close links to previous phishing attacks acquiring contact information that may not require having installed threats or adware. PC users should be attentive to phishing hoaxes like fake Web contests and surveys that are traditional means for con artists to acquire information. However, the '844-763-6050' pop-ups that continue loading regularly may be the responsibility of an installed, unwanted or threatening program.

All PC users that are noticing the '844-763-6050' pop-ups should consider using anti-malware and anti-adware applications for removing the settings changes that load these attacks. PC owners who have partaken in transferring information to the '844-763-6050' pop-ups' related con artists also should disable their Internet connectivity temporarily and change any sensitive passwords. Checking your credit history and bank account transactions can help you catch any unwanted transactions made by these con artists.

As per usual standards, PC owners requiring technical support should conduct research and choose legitimate companies with good business histories, rather than using services provided by random advertisements like the '844-763-6050' pop-ups.
