browser-based threat 4.29.24

This page was detected by ConceaBrowse on April 26th before other security vendors began reporting. It is currently detected by 4 security vendors for phishing. ConcealBrowse intervened with a 44% risk score, citing suspicious behavior.

This site impersonates a popular security vendor, claiming that the user’s machine is at risk until they renew their subscription. Pages such as this one often have links that lead to illegitimate products that are not representative of the service, or affiliated links that generate revenue for the malicious actor under the guise of protecting customer devices. Users should always use trusted means to renew security services and ignore pages like this that ConcealBrowse has intervened on.

Conceal Recommends: Although this domain is currently unavailable, it is still recommended that it be blocked in case it becomes accessible again.

browser-based threat 4.29.24

This page was detected by ConcealBrowse on April 26th. It was first detected by one security vendor in January of 2024, and is currently detected by 12 security vendors for malicious behavior. ConcealBrowse intervened with a 28% risk score due to proximity, phishing, and suspicious behavior.

This domain is frequently used to host prize scams. Although prize scams alone can result in the theft of payment information, this specific site has also been connected to a chargeback prevention fraud. Chargeback prevention fraud occurs when the stolen card information is used to charge the users for a service under the guise that it is easy to cancel. However, when victims attempt to cancel the service, the malicious actors utilize deceptive tactics to avoid returning the money.

Conceal Recommends: This domain should be blocked. While in isolation, users do not have access to their keyboards and cannot input sensitive information.

browser-based threat 4.29.24

This page was detected by ConcealBrowse on April 29th, the same day other security vendors started reporting. It is currently detected by one security vendor for malicious behavior. ConcealBrowse intervened with a 30% risk assessment because of proximity, phishing, and malware.

This site pretends to be a verification service and may be encountered when clicking on a compromised link or an advertisement. If the user interacts with the site or follows the instructions on-screen to enable notifications, they may be redirected to a technical support scam, deceptive advertisement, or a harmless website. However, the page has already injected notifications into the user’s browser, causing constant pop-ups that may lead to harmful websites or spam.

Conceal Recommends: This URL should be blocked. If a user interacts with the page while in isolation, the site will not be able to infect their browser.
