The website is not a destination that users are likely to visit frequently or even open willingly. After all, infosec researchers have confirmed that the site is mostly designed to propagate popular online schemes. One of the possible schemes encountered on the page is a variant of the 'Your PC is infected with 5 Viruses!' tactic.

Users who land on are likely to be presented with several pop-up windows containing misleading or outright false security alerts and warnings. The page will try to scare its visitors into buying a subscription for a particular application or downloading a promoted program that is likely to be an intrusive PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program). The fake scare tactics of the site may include a threat scan that has supposedly detected several malware threats on the user's device. It is important to keep in mind that the supposed results are completely fabricated, as no site is capable of such functionality on its own.

This tactic also typically exploits the names, branding, and logos of reputable security vendors, such as Norton or McAfee, in an attempt to pass its fake warnings as being legitimate. Users should know that none of the two companies has any connection to such con pages.
