The Threat Meter is a malware assessment that SpywareRemove.com's research team is able to give every identifiable malware threat. Our Threat Meter includes several criteria based off of specific malware threats to value their severity, reach and volume. The Threat Meter is able to give you a numerical breakdown of each threat's initial Threat Level, Detection Count, Volume Count, Trend Path and Percentage Impact. The overall ranking of each threat in the Threat Meter is a basic breakdown of how all threats are ranked within our own extensive malware database. The scoring for each specific malware threat can be easily compared to other emerging threats to draw a contrast in its particular severity. The Threat Meter is a useful tool in the endeavor of seeking a solution to remove a threat or pursue additional analytical research for all types of computer users.
The following fields listed on the Threat Meter containing a specific value, are explained in detail below:
Threat Level: The threat level scale goes from 1 to 10 where 10 is the highest level of severity and 1 is the lowest level of severity. Each specific level is relative to the threat's consistent assessed behaviors collected from SpyHunter's risk assessment model.
Detection Count: The collective number of confirmed and suspected cases of a particular malware threat. The detection count is calculated from infected PCs retrieved from diagnostic and scan log reports generated by SpyHunter.
Volume Count: Similar to the detection count, the Volume Count is specifically based on the number of confirmed and suspected threats infecting systems on a daily basis. High volume counts usually represent a popular threat but may or may not have infected a large number of systems. High detection count threats could lay dormant and have a low volume count. Criteria for Volume Count is relative to a daily detection count.
Trend Path: The Trend Path, utilizing an up arrow, down arrow or equal symbol, represents the level of recent movement of a particular threat. Up arrows represent an increase, down arrows represent a decline and the equal symbol represent no change to a threat's recent movement.
% Impact (Last 7 Days): This demonstrates a 7-day period change in the frequency of a malware threat infecting PCs. The percentage impact correlates directly to the current Trend Path to determine a rise or decline in the percentage.
Yourhomepage.org is a fraudulent page that may appear in your Web browser even though you have never visited this website before. There are several things that might be the reason why you come across Yourhomepage.org while browsing the Web – you either have adware or a browser hijacker installed on your computer, or you visited a page that hosts a rather low-quality advertising campaign. Regardless of the cause of the issue, it is important to know a bit more about Yourhomepage.org and the fake information that this page may present.
Yourhomepage.org hosts a fake survey, which is translated into multiple languages, and visitors will see the translation that corresponds to their IP address' approximate geographical location. According to the information published on Yourhomepage.org, visitors get a chance to win awesome monetary prizes, as well as various gadgets and high-tech devices, which may sound like an appealing offer. The survey is made to sound more legitimate by asking visitors to respond to several easy questions to acquire their prize (usually about four questions). However, at the end of the survey, the user might be asked to provide the website with certain information, their phone number, or even to text/message a specific phone number to confirm their identity. Sending text messages or calling random phone numbers found in surveys like the one hosted on Yourhomepage.org is strongly prohibited, since these offers may often end up being low-quality tactics that may increase your phone bill drastically.
Seeing Youhomepage.org in your Web browser is certainly not a symptom of unwanted or potentially harmful software.
