Mediamoderna.biz may seem like a mostly empty website, but don't let that fool you - its sole reason for existing is to carry out a popular browser-based tactic. Using various manipulative social-engineering tactics tries to trick users into subscribing to its push notification services. If it succeeds, Mediamoderna.biz will start generating unwanted advertisements directly onto the screen of the affected device.
The deceitful tactic employed by the website is to pretend that a video is currently being prevented from continuing due to a non-specified issue. It prominently displays the message:
Click Allow to continue
If the users let's curiosity get the better of them and follow the instruction, they would grant the bogus website all of the browser permissions it requires to start executing its agenda. The frequency of the displayed advertisements could even start to interfere with the normal use of the affected device. And, at this point, closing the browser will have no effect - the advertisements will continue to appear uninterrupted. Furthermore, clicking on any of them could cause serious security concerns. The advertisements could redirect to dubious third-party websites offering fake software updates or barely function applications that may be nothing more than PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs).
It is strongly recommended to take the appropriate steps in stopping the Mediamoderna.biz tactic from continuing its activity on the affected device.
