Devicespam-shield.com DescriptionType: Adware
The name of the Devicespam-shield.com site may give the impression that its visitors will receive important information or a service that could help them reduce spam messages and the advertisements they receive. However, in an ironic twist, the site's main purpose is to trick users into unknowingly enabling its push notifications and then running an annoying advertising campaign. Affected users will receive numerous unwanted advertisements, likely promoting more unsafe destinations and platforms spreading PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs).
The tactics utilized by Devicespam-shield.com could vary, depending on specific factors, such as users' IP addresses, geolocation, browser type, etc. Some of the deceptive messages presented by the page could be a variation of:
'Click 'Allow' to close the window'
'Click Allow to confirm'
Users also may encounter Devicespam-shield.com running a variant of the 'Your Chrome Is Severely Damaged By 13 Malware!' tactic. The page will claim that the user's Chrome browser has already suffered 62% damage, whatever that could mean, caused by a malware threat. The false alert again tries to convince users to allow receiving alerts from the site. Still, this time Devicespam-shield.com appears also to be promoting an application that is highly likely to be adware, browser hijacker or another PUP.
