One of our clients called after getting hit by a popup and being asked to call a number. This scam tatic has been growing faster and faster in terms of calls that we get.
I was curious how they knew so much about the client's system, down to processes and anti-virus running.
I did a quick look at saw something like this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10179114/execute-powershell-script-from-node-js
So my question is this. Is this a security threat to the machine or just certain browsers?
Right now my way of protecting clients is to have them run ad blocking software since it looks like rogue ads are the lead cause of this.
