I see these come up when mistyping a familiar URL, a la youtub or whatnot instead of youtube. get out of it any way you can, even if you have to control/alt/delete the browser itself. my beloved son pursued one of these once and we ended up with "premium voice mail" for $9.95 a month that took months to get removed from the phone bill.
I'm spacing out the url so nobody accidentally clicks it
is www. brainetics . com a malicious site?
when I went there and tried to click off the page by using the back button on my browser, a box popped up saying
"You qualify for aspecial offer. Click cancel on the next screen to view your offer"
There was no way to close out this box
When I clicked on the red x, another box opened with two option button "ok: and "Cancel" and a message saying
"Are you sure you want to navaigate away from this page?"
either button I click takes me to the order page
so is this malicious or just a cheap ploy to get you to the order page?
I checked this site on site advisor, safeweb, and MYWOT and none show this site as malicious.
