Captchafine.live is a deceptive site that displays various clickbait messages. The operators of the page use it as a way to run a popular browser-based tactic. Indeed, users who find themselves on the page should exercise caution. Furthermore, the exact tactic seen on the page may vary, as many rogue sites of this type are capable of adjusting the content they run based on visitors' IP addresses and geolocation.
One confirmed dubious behavior of Captchafine.live consists of the site claiming that users must pass a CAPTCHA test. The site will instruct its visitors to click on the presented 'Allow' button, as a way to confirm that they are not robots. However, following the instructions will, in reality, subscribe users to the page's push notifications. The moment 'Allow' is clicked, it also may trigger forced redirects to additional unsafe destinations. For example, when infosec researchers pressed the button, they were taken to a dubious site running a fake loyalty program scheme.
At the same time, Captchafine.live is likely to start exploiting the browser permissions it has received to deliver unwanted advertisements to users. The shown advertisements are unlikely to be for legitimate software products or sites. Instead, users may see advertisements promoting phishing or text-supported tactics, shady adult pages, betting/gaming platforms, etc.
Captchafine.live may call the following URLs:
