The “Your browser is heavily damage by (4) virus” alert is the result of a piece of rogue program being downloaded and installed unexpectedly on your system. The statement is fake and false. It is nothing but a trick plotted by hackers or cyber criminals to rip the victims off. They use the scaring message to trick users into downloading and installing their programs and then requiring the victims to pay money to remove non-existent viruses from your device. The warning may look real as it takes over your browser and bring suspicious ads to your device. Furthermore, it is really a tough job for victims to get off the alertl The message never stops popping up until the malware behind it is completely deleted.
Many people feel panic when they are told that their browser is heavily damaged by (4) virus. They worry the statement “It will damage your phone’s SIM card and will corrupt your contacts, photos, data, applications, etc.” will come true if proper measures are not taken in time.

By then, the situation will have become more complicated. Many plugins or add-ons may be brought into the system. Some work to undermine the performance of your device; some can cause abnormal consumption of the battery. All in all, you are not suggested to do anything as the warning states.
