Securityanalysisreport.com may, at first glance, appear as a serious website trying to help users better protect their computers and devices. In reality, however, the site relies on fake scare tactics involving completely fabricated threats and security alerts in an attempt to take advantage of its users. Indeed, infosec experts have observed the site running a variation of the popular online scam known as 'Your PC is infected with 5 viruses!'
When users land on the page, mostly as a result of forced redirects, they would be presented with multiple pop-up windows. One of the generated windows will claim to show results of a supposed scan for threats that has detected multiple, threatening malware on the user's device. Of course, no website can perform such functions on its own and the shown results are entirely fake.
At the same time, Securityanalysisreport.com will prominently feature the name, brand, and logo of a reputable security vendor, which in this case was Norton. This is another tactic designed to manipulate visitors into thinking that the messages they see are coming from a legitimate source. However, the fraudsters are simply exploiting Norton's name, while the company has absolutely no connection to the dubious site.
Typically, this tactic's goal is to convince users that they need to immediately buy a subscription for a promoted product. The operators of the page are likely attempting to earn commission fees based on any transactions completed through the site. Alternatively, the con artists could use the fake scares as a way to push users into downloading a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program), adware, browser hijacker, etc., described as a powerful security solution.
