My friend has a laptop, and said he was watching some you_tube vids, and a pop-up appeared saying he had to pay a fine of $xx amount for downloading music..

He is bringing the comp to me now, so I haven't seen it for myself.

Just wanted to see if anyone heard of this and what it is.

I just told him not to click on it..

Should I run defender and MSE, and see if its picked up?

Any feedback is greatly appreciated
