How is Unknown Security Breach Pop-up distributed?
Like other fake alerts, the Unknown Security Breach Pop-up is distributed through software bundling. Software bundling is obtained from websites which offers free software. What some users don’t know is that these kinds of websites do not disclose that there is another package bundled with the software you want to download and so you end up installing the extra software as well. That’s why we always remind users to be careful when downloading free software from free sharing sites and that they should pay attention in the installation process especially in the Custom/Advanced settings phase to prevent suspicious software from getting installed.
