A possible breach

Postby Cozak Horde » Wed Mar 27, 2019 3:51 pm

Dear fellow nations, whenever I'm on my phone and not any other device three times I have gotten a message(not telegram) on this website saying I had six viruses. It didn't take long for me to notice it was fake given that apple would never warn you just to sell to you(at least not in this way) in this sort of manner. As I discovered this is a scam set up by "Innet VPN" which is known to use this scare tactic fr money, purportedly up to 80 dollars. For those who get such a message you must tread carefully and analyze before you make an action.

Any how, my real concern is what this might represent and that might be a breach in anti virus and malware protection on this site. I do not own a website so I do not know what the jargon of such website defenses are called or how they work so I hope my message is heard and that we are all safe.

White-collared conservatives flashing down the street
Pointing their plastic finger at me
They're hoping soon, my kind will drop and die
But I'm going to wave my freak flag high
Wave on, wave on

Are you sure it isn't your phone that has adware on it? It seems strange that it only appears there, and not anywhere else. Plus I don't think anyone else has reported this issue.

January 22nd, 0097: Stocks in the Zimmad Corporation have gone down by 5% today, following the military's decision to halt its purchase of the company's latest mobile armor. The unnamed mobile armor has been rumored to have been in development for the past 6 years, and would've been worth roughly $150 million.

This. What you are describing is almost always a malicious pop up ad, not viruses.
