As the name reveals, 'Bad Rabbit Attack' Scam is meant to trick you into believing that an infection called “Bad Rabbit” has slithered in and attacked your operating system. There is a real infection that goes by this name, called “BadRabbit Ransomware,” but it is unclear whether the scam is referring to it. Our research team has recently observed quite a few scams using real or made-up infections, including the Wannacry Detected Scam and Pegasus Spyware Activated Fake Alert Scam. Regardless of the name used, the alert has no merit, and you should not pay attention to it. If you ever face an intimidating security alert, ask yourself how this alert could have been issued via a random page? At the moment, we do not know which page the devious 'Bad Rabbit Attack' Scam is operated via, but there is no doubt that a misleading webpage is set up to showcase it. Needless to say, an alert shown via a random page cannot be trusted. You can only trust reliable anti-malware software and your own operating system. Alerts shown by third parties might indicate that malware that requires removal exists. If it exists, a malware scanner will uncover it, but if it does not, most likely, you were redirected to the scam page via a corrupted link or page.
According to the misleading 'Bad Rabbit Attack' Scam alert, you need to contact “Windows Certified Technicians” immediately. You certainly can do that, but you need to call the real Windows technicians, not random ones who use fictitious warnings. It is easy to figure out whether or not you are being misled by researching the number that is introduced to you. In this case, it is 1-844-539-5778, and a quick search via your browser can help you realize right away that it is linked to a scam. Unfortunately, more gullible users might go into panic mode and call the number without thinking things through because 'Bad Rabbit Attack' Scam suggests that email and Facebook logins, personal photos, and even credit card details are at risk. Furthermore, the fake message informs that the alleged victim needs to call within 5 minutes if they want help with the removal of malware and if they want to prevent their system from being disabled. Nothing will happen if you do not call the number because it is just a SCAM! On the other hand, if you call it, you could be tricked into disclosing sensitive information, opening up security backdoors, and letting in real malware that, of course, you would need to delete.
