Alleged PJ alert is virus

The message that warns of an alert from the Judicial Police on computer security is false, where the authority calls for the installation of a Microsoft protection program. In a press release the authority warns that the message hides a computer virus.

“The message in question is false and does constitute a breach of security for users of the Internet and electronic mail”, the statement emphasizes.
