If you ever find an alert from Comcast on your screen, you should ignore it because the chances are high that you have encountered Comcast Cable Warning Alert, which is nothing more than the so-called tech-support scam. It will try to convince you that malicious software has been detected on your system, and, because of this, personal details, including financial data, Facebook logins, credit card details, and email account logins are in danger. We can assure you that the message you see is completely fake. Because of this, you should ignore it and remove it from the screen as soon as possible. Some users encounter Comcast Cable Warning Alert because they open untrustworthy domains and get further redirected to the page with the fake alert. In this case, users can get rid of the fake alert easily – they just need to close their web browsers and make sure they do not visit these untrustworthy websites again. Unfortunately, the appearance of Comcast Cable Warning Alert on the screen might also be linked with the successful entrance of some kind of untrustworthy program. In such a case, you could not get rid of the fake alert you see so easily. If you close your web browser, it will soon reappear on your screen again. As you probably suspect, you could get rid of it only by cleaning the system, i.e. deleting all suspicious applications.
It should be emphasized that the text of Comcast Cable Warning Alert might change, but we are sure it will try to convince users to dial the provided telephone number in all the cases. In our case, the fake alert promoted +1 (866) 475-7161, but the telephone number might change too. We can assure you that bad software you have been informed about does not exist on your system, but, unfortunately, we cannot promise that your PC is clean. Even if you had malware installed on your system, cyber criminals behind this scam would not help you to erase it. They only want users to call them so that they could convince them to purchase useless software they do not need. Also, they might try to convince you to give them permission to connect to your PC remotely. In such a case, these “specialists” might install harmful malware and steal personal information. Last but not least, you should not make a call also because dialing the provided telephone number might result in an enormous telephone bill.
The first thing you should do after discovering Comcast Cable Warning Alert opened to you is closing the web browser with the fake alert. If you do not let the browser to restore the last browsing session, you might no longer see the scam. Unfortunately, if nothing changes after closing the web browser, i.e. you find the fake alert reopened, it is very likely that you have untrustworthy software, most probably, adware installed on the system. Advertising-supported applications show various commercial advertisements, but they might open various fake messages to users too, so do not trust alerts displayed to you blindly. Adware programs are usually installed by users themselves next to other programs because they tend to travel bundled. Of course, users do not know anything about that. If you have found untrustworthy software installed on your PC this time, new suspicious applications might easily slither onto your computer in the future. It is possible to prevent bad software from entering the system by installing security software, so we highly recommend that you do that too ASAP.
Since Comcast Cable Warning Alert has been fabricated to scare users into dialing the provided telephone number, ignore this message completely and go to get rid of it. If you cannot remove it from your screen by closing your web browser, you will need to remove untrustworthy software that is active on your system. It might be listed in Control Panel, so we suggest checking all programs listed there first. If you find unknown/suspicious software, delete it mercilessly and then go to reset your web browser to default settings. There is, of course, a way to clean the system quicker – you can perform a scan with a powerful antimalware scanner instead. Be cautious – a bunch of scanners that can be downloaded from the web for free only pretend to be reliable tools.
