Once the malware is in your machine, and depending on how it is configured, it can do anything from injecting popup ads into webpages all the way to encrypting your personal files and holding them for ransom. The main thing to watch out for is a page that doesn’t seem to load properly with an error message that states “HoeflerText font not found”. If you see this,  DO NOT click the message. Close the page immediately and run Malwarebytes or your favorite antivirus software.
