It’s no secret that rogue security products make use of seditious browser hijacking domains as part of their online marketing strategy, as in the case of Checkeran.com. This browser hijacker in particular is vehemently dedicated to its goal of actively promoting and distributing Antivirus .NET, the latest in a long list of destructive rogue antispyware applications which have heralded 2011.
Checkeran.com literally hijacks the user’s Internet browser, and will forcefully redirect your search and browse sessions to its corrupt domain. Once the user lands on Checkeran.com, his system and browser vulnerabilities will immediately come under attack and be exploited. It has been determined that Checkeran.com makes use of various established drive-by download techniques. This is particularly distressing as the user will be unaware of Antivirus .NET’s infiltration of the system as it is done completely surreptitiously.
When the user lands on Checkeran.com’s landing page, they will be presented with a fake system scan which will purportedly scan the system for malware. The results yielded from this unsolicited scan will definitely be fake and cannot be trusted. Checkeran.com will advise the user that his PC is infected with various crippling threats which in fact do not even exist. It will inform you that the only way to remove these supposed threats will be to visit Checkeran.com’s online payment portal and purchase Antivirus .NET.
This should never happen, as Checkeran.com is developed and administered by cyber criminals and once you release your sensitive payment details to them you will not have any control over who has access to it. This means that you further expose yourself to further criminalization in terms of identity and credit card fraud.
Checkeran.com and Antivirus .NET is nothing more than an elaborate online scam out to rip honest consumers off. Do not fall prey to their clever lies and destroy Checkeran.com Trojans and malware from your PC by making use of genuine security tool which will not only erase Antivirus .NET but also protect against similar future attacks.
