What is "Warning: Internet Security Breached!!"?

"Warning: Internet Security Breached!!" is a fake pop-up error message claiming that personal information has been stolen. This error is displayed by a malicious website, which users mostly visit inadvertently - they are redirected by potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). Research shows that these applications infiltrate systems without users' consent ("bundling" method). In addition, PUPs track Internet browsing activity and continually deliver intrusive online advertisements.

Warning: Internet Security Breached!! adware

This pop-up claims that a suspicious connection to steal personal data (logins/passwords, banking details, etc.) has been detected and, therefore, access to the Internet has been blocked. To solve this problem, users must immediately contact technical support via a telephone number ("1-844-809-6669") provided. Certified technicians then supposedly help to suspend the malicious connection. Be aware, however, that this pop-up is false. By displaying the "Warning: Internet Security Breached!!" error, criminals attempt to trick victims into calling and paying for services that are not required. You can remove this error simply by closing the web browser. Potentially unwanted programs continually record IP addresses, URLs visited, search queries, and other similar data relating to web browsing activity. The data might contain personal details that developers share with third parties (who misuse it to generate revenue). Therefore, information tracking can lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. In addition, PUPs deliver coupon, banner, pop-up, and other similar ads. To achieve this, developers employ a "virtual layer" - a tool that enables placement of third party graphical content on any site. The displayed ads often conceal underlying website content, thereby significantly diminishing the Internet browsing experience. In addition, some lead to malicious websites - clicking them is risky and can result in further computer infections. You are strongly advised to remove all potentially unwanted programs immediately.

"Warning: Internet Security Breached!!" is virtually identical to Critical Error, Don't Restart Your Computer, System Blocked For Security Reasons, and dozens of other fake error messages. All state that the computer is infected, missing files, or damaged in other similar ways, however, these errors are false and should never be trusted. Their only purpose is to generate revenue for the developers. In fact, potentially unwanted programs also have identical purposes - they claim to enhance the web browsing experience by providing various 'useful features'. They deliver no significant value for regular users, cause unwanted browser redirects, gather personal data, and deliver intrusive advertisements.

How did adware install on my computer?

Cyber criminals proliferate PUPs using a deceptive marketing method called "bundling" - stealth installation of third party software with regular apps. Developers know that users often rush the download/installation processes and skip most steps. Therefore, bundled programs are hidden within the "Custom/Advanced" settings. By rushing these procedures and skipping steps, users expose their systems to risk of various infections and compromise their privacy.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

To prevent this situation, be cautious when downloading and installing software. Select the "Custom/Advanced" settings and closely analyze each step. Furthermore, decline offers to download/install additional applications and cancel those already included.
