OS(es) Affected: Windows falls into the category of deceptive websites trying to take advantage of their visitors. Indeed, users who visit the page, either intentionally or not, are likely to be presented with clickbait or deceptive messages. One of the possibilities is that the site will try to convince users into pressing the visible 'Allow' button and unknowingly get subscribed to its push notifications.

Afterward, the affected users could see ads for fake giveaways, phishing portals that mimic legitimate websites, questionable online gambling/gaming websites, and more. Furthermore, interacting with the advertisements could cause forced redirects leading to similarly untrustworthy destinations.

This scheme has been particularly popular among fraudsters. It involves exploiting the legitimate push notifications browser feature to deliver unwanted advertisements to users. Apart from the severely diminished user experience that these advertisements could cause, they also are highly likely to promote dubious or even unsafe destinations. Usually, the hoax website will show deceptive messages that hide its true purpose. Users could see the site pretend to be doing a CAPTCHA check or claim that the only way to play a video is to click on the 'Allow' button.
