Microsoft has released a warning about a new kind of browser-based attack.

The attack mimics genuine pages generated by Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome and fools users into installing a fake anti-virus software.

Users that visit a compromised website, are presented with a genuine looking pop-up on their web browser, with an bogus alert that their security defences have failed and they need to install the an anti-virus software to contain the virus.
