The Euprotection.click rogue page was discovered by cybersecurity researchers during their investigation of suspicious websites. The page is intended to promote scams and send spam browser notifications to unsuspecting visitors. In addition, this website is capable of redirecting users to other potentially dangerous or untrustworthy sites. Typically, users are redirected to such pages through websites that utilize rogue advertising networks.
Euprotection.click Tricks Visitors with Fake Security Alerts and Scams
When users visit rogue sites, the behavior of such sites may vary depending on the user's IP address (geolocation). The content presented on the webpage may be tailored to the user based on their location. In the case of Euprotection.click, our investigation found that it runs a variant of the 'McAfee - Your Card Payment Has Failed!' scam. The scam falsely claims that the user's anti-virus subscription has expired and their device is at risk. It should be noted that this scam has no affiliation with the actual McAfee company. Typically, such content is used to promote fraudulent, unreliable, harmful, and even malicious applications.
Furthermore, Euprotection.click requests permission to deliver browser notifications. If granted, the page displays notifications and advertisements that endorse online scams, untrustworthy or dangerous software, and even malware.
