My friend telephone me this morning and complained that she had received a message on her computer which read:
"Unable to verify the identity of edpn.ebay.com as a trusted site."
She's never used Ebay, and I (a frequent user both for buying and selling) can find no reference to edpn.ebay.com on my PC. I've typed the message in to Google, with much success, apart from people finding this in their Internet history and having difficulty getting rid of it.
Frankly, I've never seen her PC but I suspect her system is pretty old, and I don't think she's ever heard of AV products, so nothing would surprise me. However, she's now turned to me for help and I'm turning to old faithful:
what's going on?
is it serious?
what can I advise her to do about it?
