Question: Today a "skype type" message popped up while I was working. The message basically said that my computer protection was not active and that my system was running below par. It gave me a web site to go to but I could not understand all of it.  It was something like www.

It is this legitimate or just a hoax.  If it is for real, what do I do. I cannot call Apple now as I am out of the country and do not have acces to a phone.

Thanks for any suggestions.
