Some searches yield more dangerous results than others, for example, looking to buy software online has a 90% risk of bring you to a fake store
and free software might not be free of adware/spyware
. Looking for 'warez' is another risky query.
Last week, I received a Google alert for "Zscaler Likejaking Prevention 1.1.2 for MAC keygen serial crack Apple registration code activation
". Given that Zscaler Likejaking Prevention
is a free tool that we provide, it certainly doesn't need a keygen utility!
The download link brings the user to firstclass-download.com
. Downloading this specific file requires an account on firstclass-download.com
which costs $1.99/month, plus a $69.95 one-time fee! At best, this money will allow you to download what is already available for free on multiple websites (Zscaler
, Mozilla add-ons, Softpedia
, etc.). At worst, users are paying to get a malware or spyware.
This is the same technique I described in an earlier post related to malicious spam SEO
. There are a lot of websites similar to mycleverlab.com
. A search for "Zscaler keygen
" shows many sites using the same trick: wacky-wii.com
Always go to the official source to download any software. If you want "Zscaler Likejacking Prevention for MAC"
, go directly to Zscaler's website
. No need to pay for what is already free!
