Aderstono.com DescriptionType: Adware
Aderstono.com is not a page that users are likely to visit intentionally. In most cases, they are taken to it via sites using rogue advertising networks or as a result of having an intrusive PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) present on their computers or devices. The explanation for this fact is quite simple - Aderstono.com is a dubious page tasked with running a popular browser-based tactic. Infosec researchers also have observed Aderstono.com triggering redirects to other equally untrustworthy sites.
The tactic performed by Aderstono.com involves convincing users to subscribe to its push notification services without being fully aware of it. Once the page is opened, it will display an animation suggestion that there is a problem loading the content on the site. Users will be shown a message claiming that they need to click the 'Allow' button.
Afterward, Aderstono.com will receive important browser permission that will allow it to abuse the otherwise legitimate push notifications feature to deliver unwanted advertisements to the user's system or device. The advertisements are commonly seen to promote additional questionable hoax websites or even intrusive PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs). As we mentioned, Aderstono.com also could cause unwanted redirects. The page has been observed to open a sports betting site when users click the 'Allow' button.
