Winmanager.online scam shows a fake technical support message
Winmanager.online fake alert hopes to be associated with Microsoft Corporation and be regarded as a respectable technical support message. However, this notification has nothing to do with legitimate technicians. It falsely explains to all users that their operating systems are in danger and they have to (Increasing).
The fake notification emphasizes that visitors’ browsing, search history and personal information has been exposed to unidentified parties. If this statement was correlating with the actual privacy status of an operating system, the message would be treated differently (Personal info is key to identity theft). However, we have noticed many similar scams: “Windows Detected Alureon” and “Your Windows Licence has Expired” pop-ups.
We decided to scan Winmanager.online URL with respectable security tools. Some of them indicated this domain as a malicious, malware, phishing or suspicious site (VirusTotal analysis). We found 25 other domains hosted on the same web server as Winmanager.online website. Some of them are definitely involved in deceptive activities, aiming to have negative impact on users’ operating systems. Some of the examples are the following:
authorizedwinner.com (labeled as a malware/phishing page),
spinbonus.xyz (browsers warn people that this is a deceptive website, capable of installing software or disclosing personal/financial information),
techservice.world (displays Windows technical support scams,
beautybox.today (labeled as a suspicious website, leading to offers to install rogue software tools).

However, this does not mean that people from other countries have to chance of seeing Winmanager.online/pccare/privacy/en/915/index.html?os=Windows&osversion=Windows domain. It is hosted on a LiteSpeed server like most of the othe deceptive domains we mentioned above.
The Winmanager.online scam gives 5 minutes for the user to respond to its warning. We waited to see the result after this countdown hits zero. However, nothing happened and 93% of privacy risk was just a trap. For what? So that people would click the suggested button and be introduced to a new tab with Track.ezymob.link domain which is similar to Track.spzan.com redirect. This is also a fraudulent website which will be very interested in users’ private information and browsing habits. To be blunt, the domain will be attempting to pursue scams like getting information about users’ banking accounts (Online banking theft ).
