ZOMBIE SCAM. A Scam that turns your computer into a zombie to help with DDOS attacks.
I get a call everyday from a unknown number. No number shows on the caller ID, it just says incomming call.
A heavy indian accent starts talking saying YOUR COMPUTER IS INFECTED, WE CAN HELP FOR FREE! YOUR COMPUTER IS SENDING OUT VIRUS'S AND YOUR WINDOWS OS IS CORRUPT< WE WILL HELP YOU.
They then tell us to write down this MAC address? 888DCA60-FC0A-11CF-8F0F-00C04FD7D062
They then have you go to teamviewer.com, install it and run it. They also ask you to provide to them your IP and your TV ID Number. Thus allowing them to remotly connect to your computer. I did not install TV, and hung up at the point to do some research on this.
I found a few sites on it but this one is the best.
How many people do you think are dumb enough to follow though with what some random person on the other end is saying this about your computer? I'm smart enough to know they don't have access to my computer, so how do they know it's sending a virus out? I don't use outlook either so is not even feasible in my mind.
Anyone else of GLP get this kind of call recently?
