Instead of providing its visitors with important and useful information on how they can protect themselves in a digital environment and how to keep their data, computers, or devices, secure, the Keepsafetycore.com website tries to take advantage of them. Indeed, the page appears to be created so that it can run online tactics solely. When examined by infosec researchers, Keepsafetycore.com was observed running a version of the 'Your PC is infected with 5 Viruses!' scam. It should be noted that the page also may be capable of showing different schemes and what users see may be based on their specific IP address and geolocation.
As part of this particular scheme, the site will generate several pop-up windows filled with fake security alerts and warnings. Users will even be presented with completely fabricated results that the site will claim to be from a threat scan that it has conducted. However, no website can perform such scans on its own. Equally as deceptive is the use of the name, logo, and branding of a reputable security vendor such as Norton or McAfee. Neither company has any connection to any of the hoax websites similar to Keepsafetycore.com.
In addition, it is quite common for such dubious pages also to try and get visitors to enable their push notifications. If successful, the con page can proceed to deliver intrusive and unwanted advertisements to the user's device. The advertisements are typically for questionable or outright unsafe destinations, invasive PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) or possibly malware threats.
