Where can I report undetected rogues?


Recommended Posts

Hi.

I was listening to the radio in the backround and heard an advert for a PC "cleaner". It had that typical robotic american woman voice explaining everything it had to offer, and that made me very suspicious. After going to the website, I was hit with even more suspicions about it. I then downloaded it, the installer looked fishy yet again but the EULA looked okay. After doing a (superfast) full scan, it stated I have 254 errors on my PC. Typical run-of-the-mill rouge cleaner, except this is sponsered on a radio station.

MBAM did not detect it(not as PUP, not as a threat, nothing) and it fairly concerns me. I understand this may be a brand new rouge, but it is advertised on a radio usually older people listen to, making easy targets for the fake cleaner company.

 

I will give full details if there is a secure way to give them to researchers(or whoever is responsible for discovering rouges)., like the Radio Station name, possibly a recording of the advert, the website, all the files and screenshots.

Thank you, I'm kind of new when it comes to reporting/finding new threats but this is close to what I want to do in later years
