OS(es) Affected: Windows is a page that users should not trust. Instead of trying to provide any meaningful service to its visitors, Isletachoisya tries to take advantage of them by tricking them into subscribing to its push notifications. The push notification browser feature is intended to allow users to receive timely updates from sites they wish to follow. However, countless hoax pages abuse the browser permissions associated with the feature to generate money for their operators via intrusive advertising campaigns.

The crux of the tactic proliferated by revolves around convincing visitors into clicking the presented 'Allow' button. This can be achieved via various misleading scenarios. One of the most commonly encountered sees the con page pretend to be doing a CAPTCHA check. However, also may opt for a more straightforward way - outright tempting visitors with claims that they have won a pricey smartphone, such as the iPhone X. Of course, to receive the non-existent prize, users are directed towards clicking 'Allow.'

Once the page has achieved its purpose, it will start delivering unwanted and annoying advertisements to the users. The problem is that advertisements coming from such unproven and untrustworthy sources are rarely legitimate. In most cases, they promote additional unsafe destinations or lead users to platforms spreading intrusive PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs). PUPs are sneaky applications that can possess adware, browser hijacker and even data-tracking capabilities.
