Instead of helping users boost their defense against cyber attacks, the site runs various schemes that use scare tactics to trick visitors. Infosec researchers have confirmed that runs two nearly identical schemes, that fall into the 'Your PC is infected with 5 viruses' pattern. 

Both versions of the tactic pretend as if the fake alarms and warnings are coming from a reputable and legitimate cybersecurity vendor, with the difference being that the first one claims to be delivered by Norton, while the second uses McAfee. Users should remember that neither of these companies has any connection to the con page.

When is opened, it will generate various pop-ups, show results from a fake malware scan, and claim that multiple malware threats have been discovered on the user's computer or device. The goal of the fraudsters is to scare visitors into installing a promoted application that would seemingly resolve the situation. 

Typically, the pushed software product turns out to be an intrusive PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) equipped with adware, browser hijacker, data tracking or other invasive capabilities. However, sometimes the offered application is a legitimate one. Even in these cases, users should avoid getting the product via the deceptive page as the fraudsters more than likely are trying to earn illegitimate commission fees.
