There is a hacker that has registered over 300 websites ending in .om

These are like

netflix.om
samsclub.om
skype.om
samsung.om
homedepot.om

... and when you visit one of these sites, it will immediately start a "flash updater", but actually installs a bunch of scareware extensions on Firefox, Safari, and Chrome, that inundate you with messages to fix your virus "click here" etc.

Some pages will use surveys, advertisements, or scareware tactics to get you to download the malware.
