Icotocotac.biz Description

Icotocotac.biz is a deceptive website designed to deliver questionable content to its visitors. In essence, it is virtually identical to all the other dubious websites dedicated to performing the same function. Also common for this type of deceiving website is its attempt to bait its visitors into subscribing to its push notification services. 

The behavior of Icotocotac.biz varies depending on the user's geolocation. The site determines this factor by analyzing the IP address of its visitors and it can then redirect them to one or more dubious pages or proceed to deliver the questionable content by itself. Landing on sites such as Icotocotac.biz also exposed users to a popular browser-based scheme. By employing misleading alerts or warning messages the misleading websites try to bait users into subscribing to the site's push notification services by clicking the 'Allow' button. 

The most common scenario by far is for the deceiving page to pretend to conduct a CAPTCHA check for bots. Icotocotac.biz, however, relies on a different lure. It shows a snapshot of an explicit adult video on its page with a green arrow on top of it pointing towards the 'Allow' button. The implication is clear, to see the video users should click the button. If the site is successful, it will receive the needed permissions to start running an intrusive advertisement campaign. 

The generated advertisements would definitely lead to a considerably diminished user experience on the affected device but more importantly, they could lead to unsafe third-party websites through forced redirects. Users could be taken to phishing domains trying to harvest account credentials, tech support schemes, or fake giveaways. Another popular destination is domains spreading various PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs).
