Privacy-center.org Description

Privacy-center.org is a browser hijacker promoting the rogue anti-spyware application known as Privacy Center. Due to affiliated trojans infiltrating the system via security vulnerabilities and modifying the browser settings, web-surfing activities are typically redirected to the Privacy-center.org domain. Here the computer is subject to a fake online scan that reports various fictitious and grossly exaggerated infection results, while an aggressive adware campaign is utilized to persuade the user into purchasing the Privacy Center software.
