Put this here, closest subforum i could find: Just got my first BS ransomware attempt on my new computer when clicking on the official website for Lowes of all places. The typical "this computer is infected and has been locked to protect the network" complete with alarming audio. And you cant exit the page, all you can do is use the main power button. It was the usual "microsoft support" message with a dire warning not to ignore this message, complete with a "support" phone number for the gullible to call and the even more gullible to hand over remote control of your machine where they will encrypt and lock you out but "fix" it for a fee, usually about 300$ Dont fall for the BS, just use the power button. The best part? This incarnation said "microsoft windows" F*cking morons, i have Google chromebook I almost fell for it the first time, a few years ago until he wanted my router password for remote access, I said, "yeah, I dont think so" and Gupta Patel from "microsoft" hung up on me. LOL Happens about 3 times a year.
