A friend of mine recently told me of a virus he encountered. When browsing the internet, the whole screen went black and a skull and crossbones image appeared, with the words "ha ha ha you have been hacked" underneath.
Does anybody know the name of this virus, or even if it is one? I've been searching for a while now and unusually I can't find any information relating to it.
Did the computer have antivirus that wasn't updated, or no antivirus at all? If possible, I'd want to install and update antivirus in that computer. If the virus doesn't prevent the installation, then the antivirus should identify it.
