Pop-Ups Pop-Ups Description

The Microsoft-security-07vb[.]tk pop-ups are part of an elaborate tactic, which works by providing victims with false reports regarding the health and security of their computers. The fake information is usually hosted on a Web page, which has been designed to look as alarming as possible, and users might often encounter it randomly while browsing low-quality websites. Stumbling upon the Microsoft-security-07vb[.]tk pop-ups may be rather stressful since the pop-ups may state that the computer is the target of a hacker attack or a virus, and the user might have their files and sensitive data stolen by cybercriminals. However, these warnings are fake, and their sole purpose is to convince the user to follow the ‘recovery instructions’ that the Microsoft-security-07vb[.]tk Pop-Ups provide.

These pop-ups almost always tell their targets that they must call a particular phone number to have their computers checked and fixed by certified experts. In the case of the Microsoft-security-07vb[.]tk pop-ups, the users are asked to call 866-394-4845 – a phone number that is not associated with any reliable provider of technical support services. In fact, searching this number returns a worrying number of results, which link it to a technical support tactic. As you can probably guess, calling random numbers you saw on the Internet is not a good idea, since you might end up being involved in a fraudulent scheme that aims to collect your money and personal information.

Several other domains are linked to the same pop-ups, tactic and phone number:

  • microsoft-security-07vb[.]ga
  • microsoft-security-07vb[.]ml
  • microsoft-security-alert-09md[.]cf
  • microsoft-security-alert-09md[.]gq

If you see any of these addresses in your Web browser, then we advise you to close them immediately and disregard the content they host. If you opt to call 866-394-4845, these people might proceed to lie to you by telling you that all computer issues can be fixed as soon as you pay a small fee for their services or specialized software. However, they have nothing of value to offer, and sending them money will not result in anything good for you. The good thing is that the Microsoft-security-07vb[.]tk pop-ups are not linked to dodgy applications so that all you need to do to get rid of them is to restart your Web browser or close the Microsoft-security-07vb[.]tk tab.
