I have a friend/client running Windows 8.1 and Internet Explorer (all current and updated) that he uses IE to access his Comcast email. We leaves IE running to monitor his emails but after sitting idle anywhere from 1 hour to several hours the fake virus warning with audio comes on (so this happens without any movement or clicking by the user). The IE tab changes from the current site to flash yellow and now says Microsoft Support (but obviously it is not). The only way at this point that IE can be closed is to use task manager. The user has a current trial version of the latest Malwarebyt
I've seen this from other members I am pretty certain I got this from an email with a link I clicked - my email server detects that specific email as a virus. I keep getting detections, but it is just not being removed. A full scan finds nothing, but during the day I get notifications, and the files are quarantined. I am now worried it is logging keystrokes as I am having problems with logging into online accounts.
