There has been an increase in the number of Fraudsters posing as Internet Service Providers who provide fake support to the users. They may be providing it through fake telephone calls or Internet. This is what was reported by the BBC.
This is a same type of fraud which was used to appear in the form of cold-calls. Cold-calling which involved a fake technical support as a representative of Microsoft. And thereby charging them for the fake technical support. This was not liked by the users at all as it involved breaking of their trust on the technology.
Most of these cases were reported in UK and US.
The problem reported involved the shattering of PC support of the victim as it displays a realistic pop-up disrupting the user’s normal working experience. It would provide assistance or PC support that a user is mostly looking forward to. This fake assistance seems to be coming from victim’s ISP thereby providing reliability to victim. This seems to be legal and hence attacks the system.
Whenever it comes to talk about pop-ups, big ad networks helps the users at most. It provides them the space on Websites with the help of bidding. Criminals take advantage of this and what they do is that they will place bad advertisements which will mostly be infected or embedded with bad pixels. Bad pixels will destroy everything and result into the Computer Repairs or Laptop repairs because of the reason that the bad pixels redirect the user from a legitimate site to an infected site and that too without the knowledge of the user.
The Malware present in the adverts will do the redirection which will be invisible to the user and hence leading to a requirement of Computer Repair or Laptop repair. As it is invisible to the user it observes and checks the IP of the user at the backend and hence discovers the IP address of the user. This is how the IP’s of the users are traced by the hackers.
Then from these IP’s it is very easy to know about the information of ISP or which IP’s are owned by which ISP’s. This is how ISP stealing is done and there had been an increase in such cases.
Even in the case of cold-calling process, fraudsters prove that Fix my Computer module is totally a fake one as they will instead of acting as fake Windows support agent will act as legitimate Internet Service Providers. This is how the Fix my Computer option has been a secondary thing nowadays. Both the ways of attacking through ISP’s are prevalent nowadays and have been on a rise in most of the technological sectors.
