    Desktop pop ups - McAfee or phishing?

    shiloh

      Just come off a support call with a McAfee tech support engineer - I've recently (past couple of weeks) been getting desktop pop ups supposedly from McAfee offering me GBP40 cashback on subscriptions. He seemed to think I would have seen an option to dismiss these pop ups, however, the only option I had was to click "OK" and then be taken to a McAfee promo website. Looks very much like phishing to me but I can't be sure, has anyone else suddenly started getting these?

       

      If it's McAfee pushing these out, I'd be very surprised - surely the best way to create suspicion and worry in the consumer's mind is to start putting random pop ups on people's desktops?
