I've seen a few times where an Internet page popup displays a bogus warning about the Zeus Virus being detected. The last one had a support number to sucker you into calling (888)289-9990.
In researching this I am very unclear as to if any sort of infection actually exists or if this is just all tricky web popups.
When I've seen these popups before I just End Task them. Every time I've run Malwarebytes or another scanner afterwards, it has come up clean.
But googling the net shows people running adware remover, malwarebytes as well disabling and removing certain unspecified browser plugins/extensions/add-ons.
When I see one of these fake zeus popups, does it ever indicate my system is infected, not with Zeus but with the Fake Zeus Detector popup?
What's the real deal here? Should I just close the popup, or should I take more serious measures?
