Users who land on Alert-defenders.com should be careful. The page relies on deceptive tactics to show questionable content to its visitors or lure them into subscribing to its push notification services unknowingly. The goal is to then start generating monetary gains for its creators by delivering unwanted and intrusive advertisements to the affected users. This particular browser-based tactic has been rather popular among unscrupulous people resulting in countless pages proliferating it being put on the Internet. Some examples include Allactualjournal.com, Fresh-content.biz and Hdvideos.net.
To achieve their goals, these deceptive pages rely on several fake scenarios, and Alert-defenders.com is no different. Users may be presented with messages about a fake CAPTCHA check, a video that will become available, or an unspecified file that is now ready for download. The displayed messages may be similar to these:
'Press Allow to verify that you are not a robot'
'Click Allow to watch the video'
'Download is ready'
As you can see, no matter what the exact text is, the message will almost always urge visitors to click the 'Allow' button. Keep in mind that the advertisements shown by such untrustworthy sources may be equally deceitful. By employing similar clickbait or social-engineering tactics, the advertisements may further redirect all users who engage with them to other misleading websites or phishing pages.
