Beware of "www.hetria.xyz" - A Malicious Website

The website: "www.hetria.xyz" is being used by cybercriminals to display fake messages that claim the visitors' mobile devices, especially Android, are infected with a virus, or they must update their mobile phones before it is locked or destroyed. The messages falsely further state that the visitors should click a link or button in order to clean or remove the virus or update their mobile devices. But, if the visitors follow the instructions in the messages, they will be prompted to download a malicious app or taken to a fake website that steals personal and financial information.

Please continue reading below.

Android users whose mobile devices are constantly going to "www.hetria.xyz" when they open their web browser, can do the following to fix the problem:

  • Open your web browser on your Android phone and let the page load,
  • Go to "Settings,"
  • Click "Privacy,"
  • Click "Clear your Private Data" or "Clear browsing data,"
  • Clear your "Browser History" and Cache.

Also,

  • go to "Settings"
  • change your "Homepage" to something else, if "www.hetria.xyz" is set as your default Homepage.
  • Go back to "Settings"
  • Go to "Application Manager"
