Omnatuor.com is a deceptive webpage that relies on fake alerts or warning messages to trick its visitors into subscribing to its push notification services. These hoax pages have been extremely popular among unscrupulous people for quite a while now, and their presence on the Internet is only growing more and more.
The crux of the scheme involves showing a fake scenario that urges the user to click the 'Allow' button. By following the instructions, users grant broad browser permissions to the dubious pages unwittingly. The dubious pages will then abuse these permissions to deliver unwanted and intrusive advertisements to the device via the affected browser. The exact scenario displayed by Omnatuor.com could vary. However, one version that has been confirmed consists of showing a video window accompanied by the following message:
'Press 'Allow' to watch the video'
The advertisements delivered by Omnatuor.com or any of the other virtually identical hoax pages cannot be trusted. By clicking on them, users risk being taken to more shady advertisements or compromised pages. The destinations may include phishing tactics, fake giveaways, offers to install various PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) and more.
