    Corrected grammar & visuals aside, when it comes to these fake sites people should be reminded that if they are running FF, no legitimate WU page should be seen, ever.
    Folks should also be highly suspicious of activity that they have not specifically initiated irregardless of whatever browser they are using.

    Generalization: Getting to know how one's own specific AV/AM software applications respond to such scareware and other attacks would be helpfull in defeating/defending against these social engineering tactics. In other words, get to know your AV/AM software and what screens or popups they presents when confronted with an assault.

    Obvious to most here, but there is still a considerable amount of educating to be done.
