OS(es) Affected: Windows is a rogue website that appears to be primarily focused on running online tactics. When analyzed by infosec researchers, the page was observed displaying a version of the 'Your PC is infected with 5 viruses!' scam. In this version of the scheme, the site pretends as if the fake security alerts and warnings it shows to visitors are coming from the legitimate Norton company. 

The site prominently displays the logo, brand, name, and design scheme of the company. Users should keep in mind that rogue websites often use such tactics as a way to make their fabricated claims appear more legitimate. The NortonLifeLock company is in no way connected to these hoax pages. 

When opened, will show several pop-up windows filled with fake security alerts. The dubious page will even pretend to have conducted a threat scan and that multiple, damaging malware threats were discovered on the user's device. In reality, no website is capable of such functionality on its own. The likely goal of the fraudsters is to scare users into buying a subscription for a promoted product, while they earn illegitimate commission fees for each transaction.
