Hearing daily warnings over new browser hijackers entering the web-sphere can make one blasé about the danger they pose, as in the case of riocharger.com. This seditious hijacker was designed to come across as a legitimate and seemingly genuine security website offering a helpful and beneficial security tool to complement your PC’s security and safety. The truth is everything contained on riocharger.com was designed to rip consumers off and trick them into parting with their cash for worthless yet harmful software.
Riocharger.com will forcefully redirect your PC to its compromised domain where it will try and infiltrate your system with its malware. It will go on to spam you with various misleading system scans and falsely generated security notifications informing you that your PC is infected and severely compromised. riocharger.com will then inform you that in order to restore your system’s security to acceptable levels you need to pay for the fake security software they are selling.
This will be a dire mistake on anyone’s part to make, as riocharger.com is quite obviously developed and run by cyber criminals out to fleece consumers out of their hard earned money. Not only will the consumer be paying for an empty shell and worthless piece of software, but he will also be handing his sensitive billing information over to criminals and will have no control over what they choose to do with that information.
At the end of the day it’s up to the user to maintain his PC security with the correct and adequate level of security products, which will protect against these types of threats and remove riocharger.com Trojans and malware.
