This may not improve security at your office but at least it is an entertaining lesson on cybersecurity.

The intern memorizing the name of their anti-virus software is insufficient.

For virus notifications of any kind:

  1. Close browser
  2. Run your anti-virus software

Do not depend on names in notifications.

People who will lie about “anti-virus” warnings will also lie about software names.

For all virus warnings, run your anti-virus software. If true, your software will find them again.
