With all the fake security websites touting rogue security tools littering the web, it can become difficult to distinguish the genuine sites from the rubbish out there, as in the case of Clodshop.com. This seditious browser hijacking website forcefully redirects users to its compromised landing pages where it will attempt to infect the user’s system with AntiVira AV, a well known and highly despised rogue antispyware application.
This is the entire purpose behind Clodshop.com – simply to distribute its proffered rogue application as it is entirely dependent on affiliate marketing in order to generate an income. Clodshop.com is developed, designed and maintained by cyber criminals out to extort honest hard working consumers out of their money. Once the PC owner lands on Clodshop.com’s homepage, his system and browser vulnerabilities will immediately be subjected to intense attacks from the site in order to allow the AntiVira AV Trojans and malware to root itself in the system.
Throughout the entire site appear Microsoft Windows badges stating that AntiVira AV is compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. This is only another lie spread by Clodshop.com as Windows is not affiliated with AntiVira AV or Clodshop.com in the least. Users are well urged to accept all correspondence contained on Clodshop.com as highly suspicious and suspect, and should not put any value in it.
Throughout the entire website is strategically placed “testimonials” from satisfied customers attesting to the validity and legitimacy of AntiVira AV. These are also fake, and should not be regarded as accurate.
Listed on the website AntiVira AV Limited sells for $49.95, while AntiVira AV Plus sells for $59.95 and AntiVira AV goes for $69.95. Clodshop.com, in a further attempt to appear legitimate to the consumer offers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on their products, which in effect is as useless as the software it touts.
Consumers who do decide to reveal their sensitive payment particulars on the online payment portal located on Clodshop.com expose themselves to further criminal victimization in terms of identity and credit card fraud.
At the end of the day Clodshop.com cannot be trusted and users should steer well clear of this seditious web domain. Invest in a genuine and powerful security tool which will not only destroy Clodshop.com Trojans and malware, but also offer adequate protection against similar future threats and attacks.
