Home Rogue Websites SecureCleanerSolution.com


Posted: April 7, 2009

Securecleanersolution.com is a malicious domain that hosts a number of fake system scanners in order to intimidate you into purchasing the sponsoring rogue anti-spyware application known as Secure Expert Cleaner. You are redirected to Securecleanersolution.com from other seemingly trustworthy online resources, or because of a Trojan virus that is causing browser settings to be modified so that you are diverted to Securecleanersolution.com without your consent.

Once you are on the Securecleanersolution.com web page, you will be subject to a fraudulent system scan that scares you into believing your PC is severely infected. This is when Securecleanersolution.com suggests that you purchase Secure Expert Cleaner in order to repair these problems and prevent further threats. Of course, Secure Expert Cleaner does absolutely nothing for your computer, and should be removed as soon as it is detected.
