The Onesoftwareupdater.com website doesn't seem to have any content or function related to what its name implies. Instead, when analyzed by cybersecurity researchers, the page was observed using misleading and clickbait messages to trick users into enabling its push notifications. This popular browser-based tactic aims to generate revenue for its operators via the delivery of annoying and intrusive advertisements to the users' devices.
When it comes to questionable sites, such as Onesoftwareupdater.com, users must be careful. The rogue page may be able to modify the dubious content it shows, based on each visitor's IP address, geolocation and potentially other factors. The scenario that Onesoftwareupdater.com was observed to run consists of pretending that users must pass a CAPTCHA check. The site will show a message in German with the following text:
'Klicken Sie auf Zulassen, wenn Sie kein Roboter sind'
Translating it reveals that it is similar to the 'Click the Allow button to verify that you are not a robot' message often utilized by these untrustworthy sites. What users may not realize is that pressing the button will enable the push notifications of the specific page. These browser permissions will make it possible for the site to generate and deliver advertisements.
Users are likely to be frequently disrupted by advertisements promoting questionable or even unsafe sites - fake giveaways, phishing tactics, technical support schemes, online betting/gaming platforms, etc. Interacting with the advertisements or when clicking on the 'Allow' button also could result in forced redirects to more rogue websites, like Onesoftwareupdater.com.
