My French is limited but, this is his browser (Safari), throwing up a warning, that connecting to that site is a possible security risk, where clicking on (“Afficher le certificat”) will allow seeing the credentials of the site, (often, not very useful information) and (“Annuler”) is “Cancel”, (which MAY be the safest selection) and “Continuer” which means “Continue”, probably not a good idea either, without really knowing where that may take you.


Best to Not ever select ANY of those options, and just move on.


By Selecting ANY option, you send out your email ID, possibly your location, and through the use of what are called “cookies”, a lot of other information of yours, like where you surf to, and, in general, things you should consider to be private information.


It’s probably, at best, an Adware Phish (fishing for suckers) and not to be fooled with.

Unless it pops up frequently, IMHO, I don’t think he needs a maleware cleaner, especially if he’s on a Mac.
