OS(es) Affected: Windows exists to trick users into subscribing to its push notifications. This deceptive website utilizes various misleading and manipulative messages to achieve its goal. It should be noted that is nearly identical in its behavior to all of the other websites created to propagate this particular scheme.

Users who land on the page will be instructed to click the displayed 'Allow' button, without being told that doing so will enable the site's push notifications. Instead, will try to hide this fact under numerous false claims. Indeed, the site shows a message that clicking the button will give users access to an unspecified video. At the same time, the page will pretend to be conducting a CAPTCHA check and that clicking 'Allow' will prove that users are not bots. The messages seen on the page could be variations of:

'To access to the video, click 'Allow'

'I'm not a robot'

If successful, will be able to start delivering unwanted and annoying advertisements to the users' devices. The advertisements themselves could utilize similar deceptive and clickbait tactics. After all, in the vast majority of cases, they are promoting or trying to redirect users to additional unsafe destinations that could be running fake giveaways, phishing schemes, suspicious adult-oriented platforms and more. The advertisements also could promote invasive PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) presented as seemingly legitimate and useful applications. However, once installed, these PUPs could start acting as adware, browser hijackers or data trackers.
