Wannacry Detected Scam is represented using a misleading security warning that, supposedly, signals the entrance of the devious Wannacry ransomware. This infection is very well-known because it is one of the most devastating file-encryptors to hit in 2017. While the original infection has been contained, various wannabes are still popping up from time to time. All in all, the scam has nothing to do with any of them. It simply banks on the fact that most users will “listen up” when they see the name of this devious threat attached to a message that, allegedly, is sent by Microsoft. That is another lie to make you pay attention because Microsoft, of course, is a reputable company that many users trust. Well, the thing is, Microsoft would never set up random pages (e.g., help.windows.18ts1uz.microsoft.especific.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/xmain3/) to introduce you to any security warnings, and this indicates that you are being scammed. Do you need to delete Wannacry Detected Scam-associated threats? Do you need to take security measures? Continue reading to find out.
Are you familiar with the “Your Windows has been blocked” +1-844-528-4333 scam? Even if you are not, you should be able to make the connection to the Wannacry Detected Scam because both of them use the same “helpline” number. Both were represented via the same page – although at different times – as well. Since the scam page has been taken down, neither of these scams is still being spread around. Of course, no one can stop schemers from setting up new scam pages, creating new bogus warnings, and attaching new fake helpline numbers. To expose users to these scams, their creators usually use misleading links as decoy. Once the link is clicked, the user is routed to the misleading page. The Wannacry Detected Scam alert specifically warns against turning off or restarting the computer, and you do not need to pay attention to that. Instead, you need to close the browser and then immediately install a malware scanner to check if Wannacry Detected Scam is controlled by a malicious infection. If it is, of course, you need to remove it as quickly as possible.
The message that the Wannacry Detected Scam represents is not that much different than the alerts used by the “All Access To This Device Has Been Revoked” scam or the misleading “Critical Security Warning!” scam. First, it warns that a critical issue has been discovered. Next, it offers a solution, which is to call +1-844-528-4333. You should NOT call this number any under circumstances. Even though this is a toll-free number, you do not want to communicate with schemers even for just a comment. They could trick you into disclosing your operating system’s license number and well as information that is personally identifiable. Also, schemers behind the Wannacry Detected Scam could trick you into downloading malware. In some cases, schemers trick users into downloading programs that allow them to access operating systems remotely. This is exceptionally dangerous, and you want to avoid it. Of course, if you have downloaded anything linked to the scam, you must delete it ASAP.
