Security-error.com is not created to benefit its visitors in any way, shape, or form. No, the main purpose of this deceptive site is to tricks users into subscribing to its push notification services without realizing it. To achieve its goal the site employs various social-engineering tactics and lure messages.
Websites virtually identical to security-error.com have been flooding the Internet for quite a while now and more are popping into existence every day, a testament to the popularity of this particular scam among certain circles of unscrupulous people. Users who fail to notice the red flags will be subjected to an influx of unwanted, intrusive, and potentially risky advertisements while the operators of the site are most likely generating revenue via Pay-per-Click or Pay-per-View schemes.
Most sites running this type of scam pretend to be doing a CAPTCHA check. Other popular fake scenarios include promising users access to a video or that a file will become available for download. All that is required is for the user to click on the 'Allow' button. Security-error.com, however, has been observed to employ a different tactic.
It promises a prize to anyone who clicks on the button, although what exactly would people be receiving is not explicitly mentioned. A safe bet would be that they would not get absolutely anything besides advertisements for PUPs or suspicious websites. Users should avoid engaging with ads delivered by unfamiliar sources as much as possible or risk exposing themselves unnecessarily to various online risks.
