The name of the Scan-pc.com website creates the impression that it will provide users with some useful content related to the security of their computers or devices. This, however, is completely false, as the main purpose of the site is to deliver dubious content and proliferate a popular browser-based tactic. By employing various misleading and social-engineering tactics, it tries to lure users into unknowingly subscribing to its push notification services.
Most deceptive websites running this tactic urge their visitors to click the displayed 'Allow' button as part of a fake CAPTCHA check. Scan-pc.com, however, has been observed to use a different misleading scenario. Visitors will be presented with messages claiming that they have won a lucrative prize such as iPhone X or other equally valuable smartphone or device. Before they can receive this supposed prize, users are told that they have to click the 'Allow' button.
Of course, this is all a rather transparent lie. If Scan-pc.com is successful, it will try to monetize the browser permissions that it acquired by running an intrusive ad campaign. Users will notice a drastic increase in the advertisements encountered while browsing. The advertisements could even appear when the affected browser is closed.
Users should never engage with advertisements arriving from such unproven and untrustworthy sources. The advertisements could be used as vehicles for the promotion of dubious PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), threatening websites, phishing pages or other shady destinations.
