Beware of security.youvigilant.com - It is a Malicious Website

Scammers are using the malicious website: security.youvigilant.com, to display fake computer virus infection warnings or alerts like the one below, in order to frighten visitors into calling the bogus technical support numbers like "1-412-203-3171" for help. But, once potential victims call the fake technical support telephone number (1.412.203.3171), a person or an automated Interactive Voice Response system will request their personal information, financial information, or online account credentials (usernames and passwords). If requested information is entered, it will be sent to cybercriminals, who will use it to rip-off their victims.
