Notquiteso.buzz is a site propagating a browser-based scam. By displaying to users false scenarios consisting of misleading and clickbait messages, the page tries to lure its visitors into unknowingly subscribing to its push notification. The operators of the site can then proceed to deliver unwanted advertisements that could appear on the user's device as banners, pop-ups, notifications, etc.
When the site was analyzed by infosec researchers, they saw it displaying a loading animation accompanied by the following message:
'Please tap the Allow button to continue'
However, what users see could vary as many rogue pages adjust the scams they show based on the incoming IP addresses/geolocations. Other popular fake scenarios include claiming that clicking/pressing Allow will grant access to video content or that the button will make a file available for download.
Besides causing unwanted interruptions and potentially disrupting users' activities on the device, the ads generated by unproven sources could promote even more dubious destinations. It is not that uncommon for ads delivered by rogue sites to promote fake giveaways, or tech support and phishing scams disguised as seemingly legitimate sites. Users may also see ads for PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) masquerading as supposedly useful software products.
