    Guest keeps on showing an alert telling me that Mac computer is infected with viruses. I am well aware that this is a fake AppleCare Products page that is operating under phishing campaign. My really concern is that keeps on showing on my Google Chrome browser and I cannot do anything to stop the pop-up. It is annoying because it is forcing me to download a virus scanner. As further misleading tactic, keeps on showing the following messages:

    Your system is infected with 3 viruses!
    Your Mac is infected with 3 viruses. Our security check found traces of 2 malware and 1 phishing/spyware. System damage: 28.1% – Immediate removal required!
    The immediate removal of the viruses is required to prevent further system damage, loss of Apps, Photos or other files. Traces of 1 phishing/spyware were found on your Mac with OSX.
    To avoid more damage click on ‘Scan Now’ immediately. Our deep scan will provide help immediately!

    Please help me to stop pop-up and permanently remove it from my Mac system.
