  • The Website Ahead Contains Malware
  • Danger: Malware Ahead!
  • Deceptive site ahead

Let’s explain each malware warning in a little more detail

  1. The site Ahead Contains Malware! The website that you are visiting has malware on it and will try to infect your computer. Malware can do many things like redirect you where they want. Many hacked website redirect visitors to porn sites etc.
  2. Danger: Malware Ahead! Very similar to the last warning. The website you are about to visit might have malware on it. That means you may be redirected or forced to download something. It’s best not to continue forward until you know that the website is clean.
  3.  Deceptive site ahead! This warning is letting you know that the website you are about to visit is not what you think it is. Its deceptive and trying to trick you in one way or another. A good example might be a website that request you fill in personal information because you have been selected for a prize but really wants your information for another malicious reason.
  4. The site ahead contains harmful programs! This is usually when the website you want to visit is running scripts that are designed to do damage by either installing malware on your computer for a malicious purpose like stealing passwords or other sensitive information or forcing you to download programs to crash your computer. There is many different reasons they would want to install malware on your computer.
