Default Scammers use old browser trick to create fake virus download

An article from Malwarebytes Labs:

Tech support scammers are reusing an old technique in their existing browser locker (browlock) schemes to force a special kind of file download. Contrary to past attacks, where the purpose was to flood the machine with a large amount of file requests in order to crash the browser, this one is purely a social engineering ploy.
