Totalwebdefence.com is an untrustworthy website that users could encounter as a result of forced redirects. Typically, these redirects are caused by visiting websites using rogue advertising networks or having an intrusive PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) installed on your computer or device. Dubious sites, such as Totalwebdefence.com proliferate various online tactics and try to take advantage of any users who land on them. In this particular case, the site was observed running the 'Your PC might be infected with viruses!' scam, but users may be presented with other online schemes as well, based on their specific IP address or geolocation.
The tactic found on Totalwebdefence.com takes advantage of the interface, logo, branding and name of the reputable software vendor McAfee. The goal of the fraudsters is to pass their completely fabricated security alerts or warnings as legitimate, even though McAfee is in no way connected to the site. Users also should remember that any claims that a threat scan performed by the site has discovered multiple malware threats lurking on their devices should be disregarded completely, as they are entirely fake. No website can perform such scans on its own.
Usually, the fake scares are used as a way to push unsuspecting users into downloading and installing a promoted application that is presented as a legitimate security tool. Alternatively, the fraudsters may try to earn illegitimate commission fees by scaring users into buying a subscription for a real product.
