High Priority Message

What is High Priority Message?

High Priority Message can come up on your screen out of the blue and scare you enough to want to call the provided telephone number; however, we must warn you that this is just another annoying fake alert. This warning tries to trick you pretending to be a Windows security alert; even the malicious webpage has the usual blue color resembling that of the blue screen of death. But whatever this message or this webpage claims is all made-up. This fake alert is very similar to "Microsoft Corporation Has Blocked Your PC fake alert," "Google Security Warning," and many others that have surfaced in the past year. This fake warning has only one purpose: To make you call the given telephone number to try to sell you some useless software claiming to fix your system security-related issues; however, the main issue that you are having is the malware program that may be responsible for getting redirected to this malicious page. Our malware experts at anti-spyware-101.com say that you should remove High Priority Message as soon as possible.test

Where does High Priority Message come from?

If you see this fake alert on your screen, it can only mean that you have got redirected to "criticalwarningerrortgfn.xyz/main4" that is responsible for this attack. This malicious page tries to deceive you by using the blue color as background that has become iconic for the operating system crashes known as the blue screen of death (BSOD). Since this page looks very similar to a BSOD, it can clearly mislead unsuspecting users to believe that this is actually a real warning. This page also displays pop-up windows to convince you about the alleged security breach on your system. Landing on this page can happen basically in two ways.

First, you may simply click on a corrupt third-party ad or link while you are browsing and get redirected right away. This can happen when you are on a suspicious website offering all kinds of questionable third-party content but it is also possible that your computer is infected and a malware program like adware or a browser hijacker exposes you to such content. Second, if your computer has been infected lately with such threats, you may also get redirected simply by an adware program, which has such capability. Similarly, sometimes even a potentially unwanted program could be able to perform such a redirection. This is why you always need to make sure that your computer is clean. Infecting your PC with adware usually means that you download and install a whole bundle of threats. This is possible when you download free programs from shady P2P websites like torrent and freeware pages or when you click on unreliable third-party ads. We suggest that after you remove High Priority Message from your computer, you also scan your PC using a reliable online malware scanner to be able to see how seriously your computer could be infected.

Similarly to all other technical support scams, this fake alert is also all about pushing you to call a telephone number ("1-800-158-029") in order to try to make you purchase a rogue security program or an annual service to fix supposed system errors on your computer. This fake alert claims that your system has crashed and it even provides you with believable error codes, etc. Even though this blue screen contains some major spelling and grammatical problems, the untrained eye may only see that they have to call the "windows technician" immediately for support. However, if you do not want to waste your hard-earned money on worthless software or service, you should not believe anything this fake alert claims. This phone call also may cost you dearly and not only because of the fee but also due to the possibility that you may reveal personal or even banking information to the alleged "technician, " this could cost you more than you may think.
