Save our tigers website is compromised

Yesterday while traveling to office I saw the hoarding of save tiger the on-going initiative undertaken by Aircel partnered with WWF-India to help “Save Our Tigers”.

According to the latest Tiger census in India we have only 1411 left in wild. So I thought of joining this initiative by doing my bit so when i reached office I opened the website… oh no not again… it seem the website has been compromised and is loading foreign pages which in turn installing rogue security application on visiting user system.

From save our tigers dot com

When i visited the website it closed the firefox browser, and showed me below message

Fake message

So clicked on “OK” no other button hear (the close button is also of no use). It then started to show a fake scan running on my system.

Fake scan running on system

And at the end of the scan it showed that 100’s of malware are running on my system so I need to install a security application. It automatically started to install My Security Engine

My Security Engine installed

Users are advised not to visit this website untill it is cleaned up. We have reported this to website owner and Cert-In, hopefully we will hear from them soon.

Quick Heal successfully detects this rougeware and takes appropriate action.
