Just got a "virus alert" message supposedly from Messenger. Is this real or a scam?

He asked for stuff of profile with password, etc. I don't believe that.



·         What operating system do you use?

·         What Messenger do you use?

·         What anti-virus program do you use?

·         Did you get this message from the Messenger or while you were on the internet?

·         If so, which Web site and what web browser do you use?

This is a scam, if you asked to password or any other personal information, I suggest you ignore.

In the meantime, I suggest you to download and run the latest Microsoft security on your computer Scanner and check:


Note: the data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means there is a risk of data loss.
