This is not a case of Phishing.  It is a variation of a Tech Support scam in the name of Malwarebytes.  Numerous forum members have posted about this scam.

Please Reference:

Phishing is a process masquerading as a known entity where a web site, a PDF or other document uses content that emulates that entity and tries to get the victim to provide login credentials or Personally Identifiable information (PII).  For example a compromised web Site may have content that looks like the legitimate Login for USAA.  However, it is all about harvesting a victims USAA account credentials.
