InstantPrivacyProtection.info – What Is It?

At first, when we looked into the site, it seemed a legitimate tech support website. Soon after, we realized that the website had only one web page where it advertises the service and the number 1-855-376-4628. There were also some other numbers which came out when we examined the pop-up window. When we researched the main number on the site, we have established that it was connected with other scams, such as rogue antivirus programs, like Antivirus 7 or Antivirus GT. More to this, the number was associated with numerous websites that were either presented to the user via pop-up windows or redirects, using similar tech support promoting tactics. Sites, like privacydefend.info, informationsafety.info, mstechsupport.info and informationdefense.info are believed by investigators to promote support by displaying the very same number.

Such tech support sites usually may pop-up on your computer as a result of the accidental installation of a bundled program. Such programs come in combination in the installers of free programs that users often tend to disregard by fast clicking.

After it has been situated on the computer, the adware program may initiate various scripts, some of which may modify the homepage of the web browser you are using, changing it to something similar to the picture below.

This specific redirect which we discovered on the web even featured a voice message, generated by an automated text-to-speech program, claiming that the computer has malware and outlining these risks to the PC:

→-Credit Card Information.
-Account Passwords.
-Facebook chat logs.
-Chat logs of other messengers.
-Photos and other files on the computer.
-Illegal web camera access and control.

The redirect also comes with a pop-up that cannot be removed. Every time we pressed the ‘Ok’ or ‘X’ buttons the window reappeared. And when we tried to close the browser, the malicious redirect displayed this window:

The consequences for you, the user after falling into the scammers tricks and calling the number can be many. Mainly they might ask for your personal and financial information. However there have been cases where they ask to download and install malware masked as an antivirus program or others. Also, cyber criminals may require you to prepay or charge you for the call. Either way, you should never call such numbers.
