NCC Tackles Website Scams In Microsoft Edge Browser


The Nigerian Communications Commission’s Computer Security Incident Response Team (NCC-CSIRT) alerts users of the Microsoft edge browser to install up-to-date anti-virus software with an internet security component in order to lessen the chances of falling for a malicious attack that has been discovered in the browser.

The CSIRT which is the telecom sector’s cyber security incidence center set up by the NCC teams up with the Nigeria Computer Emergency Response Team (ngCERT) to decrease the level of future computer risk incidents by preparing, protecting, and securing Nigerian cyberspace to forestall attacks, and problem related events.

The Director of Public Affairs NCC, Reuben Muoka, explains that the malicious advertising campaign unearthed on the Microsoft Edge Browser News Feed, redirects victims to fraudulent tech support websites and that cybercriminals have resorted to posting bizarre, attention-grabbing stories or advertisements on the Edge news feed to entice users to click on them.

The NCC-CSIRT further enlightens users of the browser to practice safe Internet browsing habits and to refrain from clicking on links they are unsure of in the face of a malicious attack that has been rated as high in probability and potential damage to systems.
