OS(es) Affected: Windows is a dubious webpage, designed specifically to run various online tactics. Cybersecurity experts have observed the site showing visitors a variant of the 'Your Windows 10 is infected with viruses' scam. The site presents its completely fabricated claims as security alerts coming from the reputable software vendor McAfee, as well as a Windows 10 warning prompt. In addition, the site claims to have conducted a malware scan that has detected multiple threats on the user's system.

Of course, neither McAfee nor Microsoft have any connection to such hoax pages. Their names are exploited to make the false statements of the site appear more legitimate. In addition, no website is capable of performing any threat scans on its own. There are all common lure tactics used to convince the site's visitors into buying a subscription or installing a promoted application.

In the first case, the con artists are likely attempting to earn illegitimate commission fees for each purchase completed via the deceptive site. As for any applications promoted via such questionable methods, they are highly likely to be intrusive PUPs, masquerading as seemingly useful programs. PUPs are notorious for having adware, browser hijackers and even data-harvesting capabilities.
