I was online and one of the sites randomly redirected to a site called mcafeesecurity.application-center.club. It was talking about how my mcafee has expired (my subscription is current). I scanned my computer with malwarebytes and mcafee (both full scans and nothing was found). Does anyone have any idea what this is? I know it is a scam site, but I need to know the type of virus/malware/phishing attempt I am dealing with.
Mcafeesecurity.application-center.club is a browser redirect program presented as something that it’s not – an enhanced search engine that’s better than products offered by established names. It may certainly seem great on the surface – you’re provided with local weather, news, quick access to iHeartRadio, YouTube, SoundCloud, Amazon, Gmail, Yahoo!, Twitter, Instagram, and, of course, an ability to search the Web for information. The application is completely free, so installing it may seem appealing, but you shouldn’t trust it and, as a matter of fact, should keep it as far away from the system as possible.
