Apple Security Trojan Warning

Here we’ll talk about an unwanted program that penetrates your browser and shows the “Apple Security Trojan Warning” pop-up. Firstly, we want to say that this warning has nothing to do with really dangerous viruses as well as with Trojans – it’s just a browser hijacker. Browser hijackers are a type of unwanted programs that achieve their goals through usage of victim’s browser and altering its settings. The most usual targets of such altering are security settings, settings of new tab and homepage and also default search engine. When these are changed, hijacker starts to show ads and to redirect victim to untrusted websites, but sometimes, when scammers want some quick money, they use another method.

Advertising frauds, in which most of browser hijackers are involved, are very slow. One click on suspicious ad might cost 0.1 cent or even less, so scammers should spread their hijacker really wide to make some significant profit. Contrariwise, tech-support scam can bring thousands of dollars in few days, and developers of “Apple Security Trojan Warning” choose to try it. We don’t want them to succeed, so here you’ll find the thorough description of tech-support scam’s scheme of work and easy instructions on how to get rid of it.

Here’s the main thing that you should know about any pop-up window that appears on the screen of your computer and says that it is infected: it is nonsense. There are no miraculous antiviruses that are wandering through the Internet and scanning random user’s computers to find viruses, so if the warning comes not from your AV-tool that is currently installed on your machine – somebody’s trying to fool you. In most cases scammers provide the “free” phone number and say that it’s a decent tech-support that can help you with the virus issue, and we strongly recommend you not to call that number. Firstly, the number is paid and secondly – there are no tech-support managers there. The operators will trick you to speak with them as long as it’s possible and then will try to lure the number of your credit card, and sell you useless trashy program to deal with nonexistent viruses. To sum up we should say that everything stated in “Apple Security Trojan Warning” message is a lie, but you might have another type of unwanted software in the system. Some tech support scam works using the infected websites that show the warning in the browser, but some actually use browser hijackers, so if you see “Apple Security Trojan Warning” message – you should check the system for advertising programs.
