Can't get out of this one on a Mac OS 10.8.5
Preferences and other adjustments are greyed out
Window pops up in the middle with doom and gloom warnings and a number to dial
Stuck !

1. Could you do anything else or stuck with the screen?

2. What does it says in the window?

That appears to be a browser based scam. Restarting Safari without restoring the last session should help:


Press Command()+Option()+Shift()+Escape to force-quit Safari (This shortcut force quits the active app)

Then, hold the Shift key as you launch Safari again to prevent it from restoring all the webpages from the last session


Hope that helps,
