Home Malware Programs Hijackers Shoprdig.net


Posted: February 24, 2011

Shoprdig.net is a malicious website known to promote harmful rogue security software like AntiVira AV. Besides Shoprdig.net's rogue security program affiliations, Shoprdig.net is also strongly linked to browser-hijacking malware. Never visit Shoprdig.net deliberately, and consider any signs of your browser redirecting itself to Shoprdig.net to be symptoms of serious malware infections. Allowing Shoprdig.net to abuse your computer will result in various security risks, including fake error messages and the disabling of important anti-malware software.

Just a Brushing Visit at Shoprdig.net is All It Takes

Shoprdig.net is set up similarly to many other rogue websites, particularly those trying to market the malicious AntiVira Av product. Don't be fooled by the friendly look of the site; Shoprdig.net's content is barely there, Shoprdig.net's contact information is suspect, and Shoprdig.net's reputation is horrible!

Disregarding the shiny varnish over this rotten site, one can quickly notice that Shoprdig.net will attempt to infect visitors with malware surreptitiously besides offering AntiVira Av in an upfront manner. If you have any contact with Shoprdig.net and your browser settings aren't incredibly restrictive, you're probably infected with a related Trojan or even AntiVira Av itself.

AntiVira Av proves simple enough to detect, since AntiVira Av doesn't attempt to hide and presents blatantly false alert pop-ups, scanning results and other communications meant to serve as scare tactics. Buying the 'registered' version of AntiVira Av will not only not fix your computer, but it will actually make problems worse by giving money and confidential information to anonymous criminals.

Other Signs of Shoprdig.net Attacks

The obvious problems aren't the only ones you'll suffer if you've let Shoprdig.net get hold of your system. Here are some of the other side effects:

  • Lowered security settings and disabled security programs. This is done to prevent anti-malware products from detecting the AntiVira Av infestation and cleaning AntiVira Av out. It also has the unpleasant side result of making your computer more open to malware attacks in general.
  • Shoprdig.net is associated with browser hijackers that take control of your web browser. These hijackers may redirect you towards Shoprdig.net or simply to a related website, but in all cases, the destination is dangerous to your computer. Combined with the crippled security from above, and you've got a recipe for more malware infections.
  • Poor system performance, typically due to AntiVira Av and related infections eating up all of your RAM. Most malware will do this either in the course of their malicious duties or just as another way to panic the user.

Since trusting Shoprdig.net has highly negative consequences and no benefits to you, ignore all this website's claims and delete everything related to Shoprdig.net that sneaks onto your system.
