Fake Kaspersky Keygen URL Redirect to Survey and Prizes
We can find many tools that claim to provide security but actually they are hosted by cyber criminal to infect users. Over this week Jovi Umawing from Malwarebytes posted a new malicious website that is supposed to provide Kaspersky Keygen Antivirus.
The website actually is redirecting visitors to random destinations so sometime it will take victim to the kaspersky original website and other it will redirect visitor to fake websites and scams. Suurgle is one of the malicious destination and attacker made this site to be as created by Google.
The fake page have the following:
“We would like to improve the services that we offer to Google users by asking you to complete a short survey. In return, you can enter an exclusive prize draw to win an iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2.
Please take the time to complete, it will take less than 60 seconds.
[ Start Survey Now ]”
By completing the survey user will click on a link that provide the prize but obviously he will get an error page without any iPhone or iPad.
This is not the only case reported on this post visitors of Kaspersky Keygen may also be redirected to BBC fake news page. This is also a scam for UK users that claim the following:
“If you live in the UK and want the brand new iPhone 6, then this may be the most exciting article you’ll ever read.
Here’s the deal: Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) is giving away brand new 64 GB iPhone 6’s to UK citizens for only £1. Yes you read that right – 1 pound.
As part of a special promotion, Apple is working with its trusted distributing partner, RockyFroggy for giving away iPhone 6’s that cost 99% off regular retail price.
Why are they offering this crazy promotion? Director of Marketing, Joel Branson explains, “Last year, Apple’s UK market share dropped to 35% and is losing to Google’s Android worldwide. Apple can recapture British users by giving away extremely low-priced iPhones to people and converting them into repeating Apple customers who will spread the word to their friends.””
There are many fake sources online that claim to provide kaspersky keygen. As you can see cyber criminal will try several ways to trick users to follow surveys and download fake tools that may harm the system. it is important to verify each link you use to download an application if you have a doubt contact the vendor to clarify the legitimate source that can be used.
