OS(es) Affected: Windows is not a website that users should trust. In fact, it is extremely unlikely for people to open the website willingly. This fact becomes less surprising when it is revealed that doesn't contain information about recent celebrity news stories. Instead, the main goal of the page is to take advantage of its visitors and try to lure them into enabling its push notifications.

Unscrupulous people have been exploiting the legitimate push notifications browser feature via countless deceptive websites, and more appear to be emerging every day. These hoax websites operate in a virtually indistinguishable way. Users are shown various misleading advertisements and clickbait messages, creating a false impression about the functionality of the displayed 'Allow' button. Instead of openly revealing that pressing the button will subscribe the user to the push notification of that particular page, sites like try to hide their true intentions.

Users are likely to be presented with fake CAPTCHA checks, messages about a video encountering playback issues, a file that is now ready for download, promises of gaining access to age-restricted content and many other scenarios. No matter what the exact text of the message is, it will always instruct visitors to press 'Allow.'

If successful, could start generating monetary gains for its operators by delivering dubious and unwanted advertisements. The advertisements should be approached with caution. After all, advertisements associated with such unproven sources could be promoting additional unsafe destinations, phishing portals, online betting sites or even platforms spreading intrusive PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs). PUPs are often equipped with adware, browser hijacker and even data-tracking capabilities.
