The following anti-virus and anti-malware software makers classified www.paid2refer.com and www.cash4visits.com as malware websites:
Fortinet - Malware site
SCUMWARE.org - Malware site
Sophos - Malicious site
Now, apart from hosting malware, the websites are also very suspicious, and appear to be fakes.
What makes the websites suspicious are that they do not provide a secure connection from your computer to their websites when you are sending your personal and other sensitive information.
The websites accept personal and sensitive information, but the connection between the user's computer and their websites is not secure. A website that uses a secure connection, web address starts with https://, instead of http://.
Every website that asks for personal information, email address and password, must have what we call a SSL connection, which secures that information, by encrypting it before it is sent from your computer and then decrypting it on the server or website. This is what prevents someone from viewing your information when it is sent across the internet.
Again, I do not recommend doing any business on the websites www.paid2refer.com and www.cash4visits.com at this time.
