'Peachlandus.com' Pop-Ups Description
Peachlandus.com is a Website that tries to trick Mac users who land on it into downloading dubious applications, which in most cases can be classified as PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs). Peachlandus.com displays various pop-up alert messages designed to scare people by making unsubstantiated or outright false claims to achieve its goal. The Website has been observed to deliver six different variants of alerts. In one, the fake pop-ups claim that the user's device has already been compromised, and within 2 minutes ( shown in a countdown timer), the hackers would share the user's browsing history and recent photos with all of their contacts. The other scenarios do not go that far and simply create the impression that the user's device is not protected sufficiently and they should download the promoted application.
So far, two applications have been confirmed as being promoted by the pop-up of Peachlandus.com. One is a VPN application named Harbor VPN - Secure Connection, while the other is called FaxIt - Easy and Safe Fax. Even when the promoted applications are legitimate, users should never trust arbitrary links on the net and only download them from the official application stores.
If the redirects to Peachlandus.com start to reach an abnormal level of frequency, it may be a signal that the device experiencing the redirects has a PUP lurking inside it. PUPs oftentimes act as adware that delivers unsolicited pop-ups, banners, overlay advertisements, and browser redirects to generate monetary gains for their creators. To ensure that your device is clean, it is recommended to perform a scan using a reputable anti-malware solution and remove any suspicious applications that come up.
