Aytonus.com is an untrustworthy website, whose purpose appears to be the propagation of online schemes. It should be noted that some deceptive websites can change the content or the fake scenarios they show, based on certain parameters, such as visitors' IP addresses, geolocation and possibly more. One of the confirmed tactics encountered on Aytonus.com is a variant of 'Hackers are watching you!'
This scheme is leveraged against Apple users and relies on misleading security alerts to scare the unsuspecting victims into downloading a promoted application. The first step of the tactic involves showing a pop-up window claiming that the user has received multiple important system notifications about issues regarding their device. The main page of the tactic then takes the scaremongering to the next level.
Aytonus.com states that some unspecified hackers have managed to compromise the Internet connection on the users' iPhone devices and are now watching them. Furthermore, according to the hoax page, the affected users have just two minutes to resolve the security problem or risk having their identity, browsing history and private photos sent to the public. Finally, Aytonus.com urges its victims to download and install a dubious application presented as a security solution.
Typically, the applications promoted via such underhanded and questionable methods are intrusive PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs). PUPs are known for having adware, browser hijacker and data-tracking capabilities.
