Deceiving domain - surprise4u.xyz

Type: Adware

Surprise4u.xyz is a questionable domain that encourages users to click on the moving emoji. Once you do that, you will be provided with a New Year greeting and offered to enter your name in the following line. However, we do not recommend doing that as you cannot know where such information can be used or where the domain might take you to.

Additionally, Surprise4u.xyz has earned the name of Whatsapp virus. This bogus app can interfere with user's statuses and change them to "Happy New Year" by adding a scamming link to the greeting. A person has also found out that this PUP can result in money swindling by registering you to bogus services and this way getting your mobile balance wiped out.

Surprise4u.xyz virus also displays unwanted advertisements, offers to download rogue vulnerability scanners, and other suspicious software. You should not fall for believing in these ads as you might easily end up with a useless product on your computer system. Furthermore, the adware can get you redirected to an odd or potentially malicious place.
