The page is a dubious site that relies on manipulative tactics to lure visitors into buying a promoted application. This particular behavior can be observed on countless rogue websites that utilize similar fake security alerts and warnings to achieve their nefarious objectives. One of the potential schemes encountered on is a variation of the 'Your PC Might Be Infected With Viruses!' tactic.

Indeed, the site will create the impression that a reputable security vendor - Norton, in this case, has detected multiple malware threats on the user's device. The site will even pretend that a threat scan is being conducted right in front of the user. To remove the supposedly uncovered malware, users are urged to renew their Norton subscription, as the current one might have expired. The likely goal of the fraudsters is to earn commission fees for each completed transaction.

What users should keep in mind, is that no website can scan their devices or computers on its own. Furthermore, NortonLifeLock Inc. is in no way connected to this shady website and its name, brand, and logo are exploited as a way to make the fake security alerts appear more legitimate.
