On Monday the Guardian reported a new internet and phone scam where fraudsters called unsuspecting computer users pretending to be from Microsoft.  The caller falsely claims there is a dangerous issue with the user’s computer and instructs them to install a specific online software which allows the fraudster to take control of the computer.

On 19th July, our client, Dermot Williams of Threatscape was interviewed on 4FM’s McGurk on 4 regarding the scam.  Internet scams have been around for years, but are receiving lots of media attention as of late.  You can listen to Dermot’s interview at the link below:
