Personal-scan.com doesn't exist to provide its visitors with relevant or factual information on how they can keep their devices safe. However, the site does claim to have scanned their devices and found numerous malware threats. Unfortunately, no page can perform such a scan on its own and all of the claims made by Personal-scan.com are completely false and fabricated. In fact, they are part of a popular online tactic found on many rogue websites.
Known as 'Your PC is infected with 5 viruses!', this particular scheme also exploits the name, logo, brand, etc., of a popular security vendor such as McAfee or Norton. The goal is to make the false security alerts and warnings appear as if coming from a legitimate source. Of course, neither of the two companies has any connection to such dubious websites.
The goal of the fraudsters is likely to be the generation of monetary gains via illegitimate commission fees. The amount they earn may be based on the number of transactions completed through the misleading page. Another option involves using fake security alerts to push users into downloading and installing a promoted application.
What users should remember is that even if they are presented with a really useful software product that they are interested in trying out, they should still get the application from a reputable source. If possible, they should avoid following the instructions of a random website they encountered while browsing the Internet.
