What Does Do?

Scammers have made a lot of profits, using the average computer user’s fear. Here is where sites such as solvemypc1 might come in. They may come automatically with PUP (Potentially Unwanted Programs) which are combined in the installers of other programs. Or they may situate themselves as extensions on the user browser. After that they may change the homepage of the user, modifying every setting of the browser and this making it harder to change back.

Such scams most often proceed in three phases:

Phase 1: The roping.

The roping phase is usually connected with the content of the web page itself. Users report that it may have displayed a pop-up claiming that the computer is compromised/infected with spyware or other malware. Some of them even state the possible damages that could’ve been done to the victim PC:

-Your personal files and photos might be at risk!
-Your Facebook password and chat logs can be read!
-Your financial information is at risk!

After such ‘scares’, the ‘tech support’ invite the affected member to call immediately to protect themselves. For some of the users, this may sound funny since you will never call such numbers and fall for this trick. However, with technology spreading worldwide, the number of affected users has risen over the years.

Phase 2: Information Collection.

If a user decides to call the displayed number, several things can happen:

First, the user may experience charges on his phone bill for solely calling the number.

Second, the scammers may present themselves with false names and begin to employ a tactic, called social engineering. Using this tactic, they may trick the user into successfully trusting them. From there, they may obtain different information from the user whether it was financial or personal.

They also may prompt users to install tools and programs that they might claim to fix the computer. In reality, however, these programs may be Trojan horses that could grant the scammers complete access to the victim PC.

Phase 3: Damages.

Once they are in control, they may take several different directions:

1)Hit&Run – This could be the most widely chosen strategy since smart cybercriminals aim to remain above the radar for as little time as possible. In this tactic, they obtain any funds from the user or sell their information, and they eradicate all traces of their presence on the computer. Sometimes they may even crash the computer, erasing the hard drive completely.

2)Stay&Hunt – The second tactic they might use is connected with continuously ‘helping’ the customer, by possibly displaying other fake problems on their computer usually for a monthly fee. This may ensure cyber criminals more funds. However, it is a more risky option. It is not preferable since they have to maintain an active connection with the user that could trace back to them.
