OS(es) Affected: Windows appears to be a website dedicated to the propagation of online tactics. The site is likely to show visitors various, misleading and fabricated messages masked as security alerts or warnings. Typically, the goal of the people operating these rogue websites is to trick users into visiting the website of a legitimate security tool and making a purchase there. Thanks to the affiliate tags attached to the opened page, the fraudsters will then earn profits in the form of commission fees, via affiliate programs.

The site was observed running a version of the 'You’ve visited illegal infected website' tactic, but users may encounter different schemes, as well. Many rogue websites scan the IP addresses of visitors and then modify the deceptive messages they show. The main tactic exploited by these sites is to create the impression that the user's device has been infected. The tricky page will usually generate several pop-up windows with alerts pretending to be sent by reputable sources, such as McAfee, Norton, etc. In reality, these companies are in no way connected to these dubious websites.

Another common tactic involves showing users the results from a threat scan that the untrustworthy site will claim to have conducted. The results may include numerous, serious issues, as well as malware threats. Users should keep in mind that no website can perform threat scans on its own and all of the displayed results are entirely fabricated and must not be taken seriously.
