Scam contentsVery annoying pop-ups that are hard to get rid of, warning of viruses, and trying to sell various things (each one is different).
Your comments / analysisNeither Adblock Plus nor Kaspersky anti-virus catches them. If you click on CLOSE (as opposed to x in top right corner) Kaspersky warns of an attempted install of malware. After talking with Kaspersky they don't seem to know much about this.

    I don't know for sure if this was a scam, but I got a notification on my macbook air from google chrome that said I had 5 viruses. I clicked on it and it brought me to soretun.pro where it listed 5 files and told me to update my antivirus software by clicking proceed. I do not have antivirus software through google chrome, so I opened my antivirus software and started a scan. So far it hasn't found anything, but the google chrome notification popped up again.

    An update: The notifications kept popping up the next few days, so I went to google chrome settings and found the only website that was giving notifications that I didn't know. I don't remember the website I disallowed because it disappeared, but I remember it had something like 499.something. I disallowed it and the notifications stopped.
