Microsoft Corporation Has Blocked Your PC fake alert
Microsoft Corporation Has Blocked Your PC fake alert can appear in your browsers unexpectedly and may be convincing enough for inexperienced computer users to make them believe that they have no choice but to call the provided support phone number.

Similarly to previous fake alerts like "Unknown System Failure! Scam," "Your System Is Heavily Damaged By Virus Tech Support fake alert," and "Webshield Enter Product Key Tech Support Scam," this kind of attack is all about pushing you to call the given number posing as a technical support phone number. However, when you call it, you would possibly talk to a salesperson instead of a real and certified technician, and you would be talked into buying some useless security software or error fixing service.

This fake alert is generated by a malicious website whose only task is to show you the warning pop-up over a seemingly Microsoft error page that also claims that your Windows has detected virus and spyware on your system.

First, it is possible that while surfing the web you click on corrupt third-party content, such as a link, an ad (pop-up or banner), and a fake button.

A malicious bundle may carry all kinds of malware threats, including adware programs, browser hijackers, fake alerts, Trojans, ransomware, keyloggers, and so on.
