EnigmaSoft Threat Scorecard
EnigmaSoft Threat Scorecards are assessment reports for different malware threats which have been collected and analyzed by our research team. EnigmaSoft Threat Scorecards evaluate and rank threats using several metrics including real-world and potential risk factors, trends, frequency, prevalence, and persistence.

Users do not visit sites such as Toperes.pro willingly. Instead, they land on them due to a mistyped address, a previously visited page that utilizes a rogue advertising network, or due to a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) managing to sneak itself on their computers or devices. The need for such obtrusive and roundabout methods for generating traffic is easily explained - the sole reason for Toperes.pro's existence is to run a popular browser-based tactic.
Indeed, the page lack any useful properties or features. On the contrary, it uses social engineering and clickbait tactics to convince users to follow its instructions. By creating false and misleading impressions, the site lures visitors into clicking the shown 'Allow' button without stating what the real consequences would be. Most sites running this tactic pretend that clicking the button is part of a CAPTCHA check. However, Toperes.pro runs a different but equally fake scenario.
The site shows a video that is supposedly encountering issues and cannot be played. To complete the ruse, Toperes.pro also displays several messages with the following text:
'Click 'Allow' to play the video'
'Stream and download are available'
Users that click the button will be subscribed to the page's push notification services inadvertently. The consequences of that action will become obviously not long after with Toperes.pro starting to generate intrusive and unwanted advertisements via the affected browser.
The advertisements are likely to be used in the promotion of other hoax websites, phishing pages, fake giveaways, or to deliver offers for dubious software products that could include adware, browser hijackers or other types of PUPs.
