Adforyounews.com is a website that, despite its name, doesn't appear to be too interested in providing its visitors with any news content. Instead, the page functions in a virtually indistinguishable way from all the other countless rogue websites trying to take advantage of users. What exactly is displayed on the page could be influenced by certain factors, such as the IP address and geolocation of each visitor, so users could encounter completely different schemes on the page.
However, what cybersecurity researchers discovered on Adforyounews.com, were false and misleading messages telling them to press the shown 'Allow' button. This is a particularly common fake scenario used by untrustworthy websites to trick users into enabling their push notifications. Other frequently used options include pretending that pressing 'Allow' will grant access to a video or that users will be able to download an unspecified file afterward.
What these websites, and Adforyournews.com in particular, aim to achieve is to receive the browser permissions associated with the push notification feature. It would enable them to deliver various unwanted advertisements to users' devices. The advertisements could severely diminish the user experience on the affected system. More importantly, they are highly likely to promote additional untrustworthy destinations, including fake websites, platforms spreading PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), fake giveaways, etc. In fact, pressing 'Allow' on Adforyounews.com could lead to a forced redirect to exactly such rogue websites running variations of popular online tactics.
Why am I getting the Adforyounews.com notification ads?
If you are seeing ads from Adforyounews.com on websites that you visit, it is likely that your computer is infected with adware or a virus. You can remove the adware or virus using a free browser extension, but if you continue to see ads from Adforyounews.com, your computer might be infected with malware. We will need to scan your computer for malware and remove it.
