    "Suspicious Activity" Popup?


    I received this popup :

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	scam.jpg 
Views:	10 
Size:	102.4 KB 
ID:	97516

    Is this a legitimate message from Microsoft ? I doubt it, but I've been out of the loop on computer security matters for quite some time and cursory search about scam popups did not bring up anything looking this official. Had to use CtrlAltDel to close this window.

    Thanks for help.

    Yes, it's bogus. The URL should tell you that, anything from Microsoft would come from a Microsoft domain. Regardless, Microsoft doesn't do stuff like this.
