Fake Attack Aimed At iOS Users - TinoShare - tinoshare.com

Scammers have managed to enter iOS through Safari. It is a cake pop-up window that appears suspicious while you browse through Safari. The message indicates that there is a fault in the device and to solve the problem have to call technical support.

It turns out that several iOS users (mainly US and UK) have been reporting for days the appearance of a suspicious warning window in the Safari browser on their iPhones and iPads. The alert message indicates that there is a problem with the device and that failure to resolve the user should contact the telephone number shown.Anyone could believe that the message comes from the offices of Apple support, but no.

It is an attack designed by criminals who want to steal our money only. If a user encounters this window and decides to call the number listed for you to fix the alleged failure to have your device you will not get any help; but on the contrary . call costs between 19 and 80 dollars  Now the message that users reported is as follows:

** Report ** IOS error

IOS previously stopped working due to the visit to unwanted sites. There is a problem with your IOS configuration. Please contact Apple Technical Support 0800-XXX-XXXX. Click OK this will attempt to send a bug report to Apple. Apple now call 0800-XXX-XXXX.

But this was not the only message used by criminals . Some argue that received notices which states that the application of a third party caused the operating system to stop, while others were told that their personal information was being stolen.

The particularity of this popup is that, however much we press the “OK” message will display embedded in the button , even CUNADO we close and open back. So, to escape this attack we can restart the browser or delete the history touch case l.

As you can see, scammers have changed their technique. No longer are they who call making us go through technical support services;  but users are now looking for the call after seeing a worrying warning message on their devices. So be alert and be careful with popups.
