‘Virusdefense.info’ Pop-Ups

Posted: November 6, 2015

Virusdefense.info is a fraudulent website that you should not trust. It is not among the malware-hosting platforms, so it cannot cause damage to your PC. This news is far from good because the people behind this untrustworthy page may try to take your money directly. Once your browser loads virusdefense.info, you may notice a large security alert. This pop-up resembles a scanning process, but it is just an animation. Every visitor is about to see the same misleading information regarding the security state of the PC. The bogus warnings of virusdefense.info claim that you are infected with multiple cyber threats. Next to the fabricated results, you may notice the Windows shield logo. It is there only to evoke trust and to increase the chances for you to believe in the false data. To fix your PC, virusdefense.info encourages you to call 866-848-6738. The pop-ups announce that this way you will get in touch with qualified technicians, who can delete all threatening software quickly and efficiently. This statement is not true because the people who will answer your call are con artists. These fraudsters will demand a large amount of money for their services. As a result, you may just lose a few hundred dollars because they cannot assist you in any way. Your PC is most likely not infected with threats in the first place. However, if Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer redirect you towards virusdefense.info regularly, then some browser hijacker may be in control of them. This web extension may set virusdefense.info as your homepage, so you may start seeing fake warnings frequently. It is essential to conduct a system scan with a powerful security software to clean your Web clients from this browser hijacker.
