Phoney Firewall Warning

Postby JeanInMontana » Sun Feb 17, 2008 4:12 pm

These guys deserve all the bad press they can get, and I intend to help them out.:whp: I use Online Armor for a firewall and love it. I had never heard of this company until today. I'm sharing it all over and can't wait to hear if there is a payload in the link to update.

Final notification regarding Firewall Updates: You may need to update your Firewall security settings as soon as possible:

Press here to update your Firewall security settings or read below for more information:

There is a high possibility that your PC's Firewall security settings may become exploited by malicious websites without your knowledge. This could easily lead to the following attacks on your PC's hard drive:

- Unwanted Virus Downloads
- Uncontrollable Trojan horse attacks
- The running of unwanted script programs
- The installation of malicious spyware

If your PC is not protected correctly then these attacks could allow hackers to track your movements across the Internet. It also means that your information, ranging from passwords to credit card numbers, can be stored by sites that you visit. A successful hacker could examine this information and extract it, setting the stage for identity theft, credit card fraud, or worse.

Press here for more information on how to make certain you are protected:

hxxp://acinaformlunular.com/t/qm6hh14wl/7f70fi647825

Some unknown or untrusted websites use script programs to change your home page, modify your web history, display advertisements, disable your back button, or redirect you to different websites without your consent. Such scripts have also been recently used by Russian hackers to silently install viruses on end-user's computers.

One way to protect your PC is to download this new FIREWALL software program.

Obvious scam site, claims to be "#1 Rated Site as seen on: CNN NBC C/NET AOL"

Rated Red by Site Advisor
When we tested this site we found links to platinumpartner.com, which we found to be a distributor of downloads some people consider adware, spyware or other potentially unwanted programs.
