Fake Java update alert

 
A new Java update scam is currently circulating online in search of fresh victims. It alerts the computer user that, in order to view some video content, they have to update to an odd Java 13.6.

Cybercriminals can resort to various ways to show a potential victim the update alert message. They generally use social networks to promote fake footage of some important event.

Thanks Jeff the dumb thing about it there is no Java 13 only Java 7 or Java 8.

We know that, but the scammers overlooked it. Hopefully the public in general realizes what version they currently are using
