Microsoft Official Support is a phishing site pretending to be a tech support warning and is usually targeted at Google Chrome. It tells the user that their computer has been locked due to it being "infected by a virus", even when the computer is safe. This scam appears on many URLs (typically on parts of AmazonAWS.com) and has many descriptions. The type of virus may vary.

BehaviorEdit

Once the website is viewed, it opens a fake Microsoft support webpage topped by a message saying that your computer has blocked by the visited website due to it being "infected" by a so-called "virus". Below the error code would be a phone number followed a list of information claimed to be at risk.

Removal Edit

Clicking on the X button won't do any help since the window is locked, but it can be closed by restarting your computer.

Trivia Edit

  • A green version exists. This version is not as bad as the others, as this version does not lock the window.
    Microsoft Official Support - Google Chrome 8 8 2017 9 29 18 PM
