What is a Malware?

Like a virus. In this case, the bad website got installed on your internet home page, so every time you opened internet, it showed that page. Thank you.

So I wont get arrested then!?

That is correct. Hackers put fake warning popups for scaring people and/or to get people to give them money. Thank you.
