WASHINGTON — It may not be the menacing Swine Flu, but this virus could cause you some pain.

The FBI has issued a consumer warning regarding a pop-up security message on the Internet.

“The messages may contain a virus that could harm your computer, cause costly repairs or, even worse, lead to identity theft,” the FBI said in a press release. “The messages contain scareware, fake or rogue anti-virus software that looks authentic.
