In order for you to end up on a malicious website with a fake warning message, such as storage.googleapis.com, you need to get redirected to it somehow. If you understand this “somehow,” you may have a chance at preventing similar attacks from happening. There are two possibilities when it comes to redirections like this. One, it is done by a malware programs, such as an ad-supported program, and two, you click on unreliable third-party content on a shady website or a modified search results page generated by a questionable search engine.
It is quite possible that this is not the first time you encounter malware infections and that there could be some already lurking on your system if your computer is not protected by proper anti-malware software. Adware programs, for instance, can easily apply redirections either automatically or by your clicking on unsafe third-party ads they display on your screen. This is why it is essential that you make sure that your system is clean of malware threats.

Of course, simply detecting the potential threat sources will not restore your system security; you will also have to remove all of the infections found.
As we have mentioned, the other option is that you visit suspicious websites, including torrent, shareware, gaming, and pornographic sites that generally promote a lot of annoying and potentially dangerous third-party contents. One click is enough on the wrong link, fake button, fake notification, or commercial ad and you could either directly redirect to this fake alert page or download a bundle packed with malicious software installers, including one that is capable of such redirection. In any case, you may see now clearly why we urge you to scan your system and remove 1-800-953-457 Pop-Ups as soon as possible.
This annoying fake alert pops up the moment you land on this malicious website. The warning refers to an “Error # 0x80072ee7” that seems to mean: “Malicious Pornographic Spyware/Riskware Detected.” To make things seem more dramatic, this fake alert also calls itself a “critical alert” that warns about the alleged possibility that certain sensitive type of information (user names, passwords, etc.) can be stolen from your computer. In other words, you are warned that cyber criminals can access such information and you must act “immediately” by calling the provided toll-free number: 1-800-953-457.
You need to understand that schemers use such fake alerts to fool users into believing that there is an urgent security-related issue and they cannot do anything else but call the given phone number. However, if you fall for it and do call, you may lose some hard-earned dollars by purchasing a useless service or application offered by the alleged “Microsoft technician.” It is also possible that these schemers ask you to disclose some personally identifiable information and demand access to your computer, which can be misused or sold on the dark web to cyber criminals. If you want to restore order on your PC and keep it clean, we suggest that you do not hesitate to act and delete 1-800-953-457 Pop-Ups right now.
If you want to clean this fake alert from your computer and all other suspicious programs that may have something to do with it and with other security issues, we recommend that you scan through your browsers’ extensions lists and the list of installed programs in Control Panel, and weed out every application that has nothing to do on your system. You can use our guide below as a reference if you do not know how to accomplish this. But this may only be the first step on your road towards a secure virtual world. Therefore, we recommend that you remove all potential and real malware threats from your PC.
