Some YouTube ads found to contain malware - Security experts are warning that malicious ads have found their way onto YouTube, potentially putting tens of millions of users at risk of infection. The ads themselves are not the problem, but once a user clicks on them for more information they are redirected to other sites containing the malware. The best defense is to be sure to keep your computers up-to-date. For assistance with making sure your computer is up-to-date, contact us directly at 1-800-373-7521 or

Beware of Telephone Tech Support Scams - This scam usually starts with a pop-up widow that appears while browsing the internet. This pop-up may say something like “your computer is infected with a virus” and provide a phone number to call for help. Calling the number will result in a request for remote access to your computer in an attempt to ‘fix’ the issue. Allowing this access leads to malware infections and puts personal information at risk. If any similar pop-ups appear on your screen, contact us directly at 1-800-373-7521 or
