Securitycheckpanel.com appears to be a website dedicated to running various online tactics. Which particular scheme will users encounter on the page may be based on various factors, including their IP address, geolocation and possibly others. When infosec researchers analyzed the page, they confirmed that it displayed a variation of the 'Your PC is infected with 5 Viruses' scheme, as well as trying to trick visitors into unknowingly subscribing to its push notification. 

The 'Your PC is infected with 5 Viruses' consists of displaying several pop-ups containing false security and alert warnings. One of the pop-ups will pretend to conduct a threat scan that will invariably discover multiple malware threats on users' computers and devices, even though no website is capable of such functionality on its own. The role of fake scares is to push users into downloading a promoted application or buying a subscription for one.

In addition, the site may attempt to add legitimacy to its completely fabricated claims, by plastering the name, logo, and branding of a reputable security vendor in multiple places. In this case, Securitycheckpanel.com abuses the name of Norton and users should be warned that the NortonLifeLock company is in no way connected to the hoax page. 

Some users could instead be shown deceptive messages urging them to press the 'Allow' button under various pretenses. For example, the site may display a message similar to 'Click Allow to win a prize and get it in our shop.' In reality, by pressing the button users will be subscribed to Securitycheckpanel.com's push notifications. Afterward, the page will be able to generate numerous, untrustworthy and intrusive advertisements, earning monetary proceeds for its operators.
