MyPcSupportUSA.com – Distribution

The PUP and the browser extension that support the “MyPcSupportUSA.com” domain usually get into your computer through third-party installers. They can sneak into your computer without your approval, by hiding themselves in freeware installations and bundled packages.

In these packages, additional components for installation are not always disclosed properly or not at all and people get tricked into installing potentially unwanted programs such as those related to “MyPcSupportUSA.com”. Sometimes that can be avoided by clicking on the “Advanced” or “Custom” feature in an installation setup to see what will get into the computer.

Other ways of getting infected are by opening malicious sites and spam emails or downloading malicious e-mail attachments, clicking on various pop-ups and banners containing malicious code.

MyPcSupportUSA.com”is a domain of a fake tech support website. It looks like a site with a chat room designed to help users by cleaning their computers from malware. It features one big chat in which you are immediately engaged by a Microsoft Specialist, who is asking you various questions about the integrity of your computer and its security.

A funny thing you might not notice is that the guy called “Matt Folson” who you tried to chat with, mysteriously evaporated, seconds after he wrote to you, initially. The chat becomes closed at that exact moment and this number pops-up inside the chat window: (855) 385-5593.

If you call the above-mentioned number, you are supposed to reach a “Microsoft Specialist”. It is claimed by the site that if you call the number, it is only because a specialist can perform a free diagnostic scan your computer for malware-related problems and supposedly fix them. I assure you, there is no such employee going by the name of “Matt Folson” working for Microsoft, as that is just a fictional personality created to support the scam, so whoever is on the other end of the telephone line is not to be trusted as well, and be sure that there is nothing “FREE” waiting for you.

The same name (Matt Folson) and picture were used in a similar scam, hosted on the
