displays misleading alerts or warning messages in an attempt to lure users into subscribing to its push notification services unknowingly. This is the typical behavior of all pages dedicated to proliferating this particularly popular browser-based tactic. The con sites will then abuse their ill-gotten browser permission to run an intrusive ad campaign on the device. 

The exact scenario employed by may change but for now, the site has been observed to display a video window accompanied by the following message:

'To access the video, click 'Allow'

Other common lures include the con sites pretending to be doing a CAPTCHA check or that a file will be accessible for download only after clicking the 'Allow' button.

Users should exercise caution when dealing with the advertisements generated by such dubious sources. Interacting with them could trigger forced redirects leading to other suspicious places, such as phishing pages, domains spreading PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) and more.
