Myluckywheel.net is a Dutch-language scam website that you may find in your browsers after you get redirected by clicking on corrupt third-party ads generated by ad-supported programs or other malware threats. We have classified this infection as an adware server because it is what it is. Since this website can expose you to harmful content, you should close your browser right away. In fact, you should remove Myluckywheel.net and the possibly related malware programs immediately if you do not want to let more infections on board and lose money or your personal details by being scammed. Please read our full article to learn how you can become infected with this adware server and what kinds of risks it could hold for you.
There are at least two ways for this annoying and unsafe scam website to load in your browsers. First, it is possible that your system has been recently infected with malware programs, such as adware applications and browser hijackers which can introduce you to unreliable third-party commercials and links. Clicking on an ad or link that comes from cyber criminals can easily redirect you to this adware server in no time. Another risk is that you drop a bundle of malware threats onto your machine if you are not careful enough with your clicks.
Second, you can end up on fake or malicious file-sharing and gaming websites that host several unreliable third-party ads. These ads could be disguised as fake plugin or software updates needed to see certain content or to provide security. But an ad can also pretend to be a download button or link. If you click on such content, you could get redirected to Myluckywheel.net or download a bunch of malicious software installers. All in all, we believe that it is essential that you scan your computer with a reliable malware scanner to detect all known harmful programs after you delete Myluckywheel.net from your browsers and do the same with the related programs as well.
Our research indicates that for some reason this adware server is mostly popular in Switzerland. This does not mean, though, that you cannot be infected with this threat or any malware redirecting to it anywhere in the world. The full URL of this infection is “myluckywheel.net/k/jpc/nl-6903/index.html.” It is quite possible that this server hosts a number of other scams as well. Trying to reach this site in Google Chrome can be blocked by a warning called “Deceptive site ahead.” This warning tells you that “Attackers on myluckywheel.net may trick you into doing something dangerous like installing software or revealing your personal information (for example, passwords, phone numbers, or credit cards).” Well, this definitely does not sound promising and clearly shows that you need to close your browser right away and make sure you delete Myluckywheel.net and all possibly related applications.
If you click for details on this warning page you are also informed that “Google Safe Browsing recently detected phishing on myluckywheel.net.” This means that this adware server can spy on you, i.e., collect information about your browsing activities and more. This website is clearly a scam and looks like it is in Dutch language. It offers you an “easy winning of €1.600” by spinning the “good old” wheel of fortune. You have 3 spins to win. Of course, after you seem to have won, you will be asked a few questions where you may be asked to give your e-mail address and other personal details that can be used by cyber criminals. Another undesirable consequence of engaging with this webpage is that you may drop malware infections onto your computer, but you will be introduced to more unreliable third-party advertising as well as you continue surfing the net. We believe that you cannot leave this issue unaddressed. Therefore, we suggest that you remove Myluckywheel.net right away by detecting the malicious programs responsible for this redirection if this attack did not come from a malicious website.
As a matter of fact, we cannot name one particular malware program that redirects to Myluckywheel.net. Therefore, we advise you to check your list of installed programs for suspicious programs you have installed recently and uninstall them once you are certain they are not important applications. We have included the usual uninstallation guide below for you to use if you want to manually try to end this infection. However, if you would prefer a more efficient automated method, we recommend that you install a reputable anti-malware application that will automatically detect and eliminate all potential threat sources and keep your PC protected from future invasions.
