Closing pop-ups with [alt]+[F4] (Windows) or [cmd]+[w] (Mac)
Some malicious pop-up windows display “x” symbols within the window. This is to trick people into clicking the pop-up's body. Using [alt]+[F4] (on a Windows computer) or [cmd]+[w] (on an Apple computer) to close the window avoids any interaction with the pop-up. This can prevent the accidental installation of malware.
Interacting with malicious pop-ups can be risky. Closing pop-ups using a "close window" shortcut avoids any accidental incidents.
Behaviours in SebDB are ranked by their impact on risk. Tier 1 behaviours have the biggest impact, Tier 4 behaviours the least.
Malware infections occur when malicious software makes its way on to a device or network.
