Trojan worm: RDN/YahLover.worm!055BCCAC9FEC


Recommended Posts

Anyone know anything about this?

Red screen popped up with this:  RDN/YahLover.worm!055BCCAC9FEC

And Chrome got locked and I task managered it closed and I don't seem to be having a problem.  Ran Malwarebytes and it didn't find anything.

Yes, total fraud.  It is a scam to get you to open your wallet for an incident that does not exist.  Google is both a friend and foe.  A Google search can generate as much misinformation as information and one must be both cynical and use critical thought on query results.  The name of the worm might be real and Malwarebytes may have detected and removed the worm when it was active but you were confronted with nothing but a web page.

Since the event did not exist and was created fraudulently, there is nothing for Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware ( MBAM ) to target.  The fraud emanated from the Internet and not your PC.

FYI:    US FBI PSA - Tech Support Scam
