Type: Adware is a rogue website that has been confirmed to run popular online tactics. More specifically, when infosec researchers examined the page, they were presented with a variation of the 'Your PC is infected with 5 viruses!' scam. This particular scheme often exploits the names, logos, brands, etc. of legitimate software vendors as a way to make its fake claims appear legitimate. In this case, the site was pretending that its fabricated security warnings are coming from Norton. Of course, the NortonLifeLock company has absolutely no connection to any of the rogue websites of this type.

Users also should keep in mind that these tactics often show a fake threat scan. Usually, the scan will claim to have detected numerous malware threats that should be removed immediately. After all, the goal of the fraudsters is to push unsuspecting users into buying a subscription for a promoted application or downloading one on their devices. Users may even be taken to legitimate apps, in which case the operators of the scheme are likely trying to earn fraudulent commission fees.
