OS(es) Affected: Windows is a deceptive website, that is designed to perform multiple online tactics, in an attempt to take advantage of its visitors. Cybersecurity researchers have observed the site run a phishing scheme, as well as try to lure users into enabling its push notification services. It should be noted that questionable sites such as this one are rarely opened intentionally. It is far more likely that users were taken there via forced redirects caused by pages utilizing rogue advertising networks or due to a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) sneaking inside their computer systems.

The lure that uses as part of its phishing tactic, is the promise of a lucrative prize. More specifically, the site makes the fake claim that visitors are eligible to receive a Visa gift card worth $500. However, to receive this enticing reward, they will first have to provide their email address. Afterward, users also could be asked to complete a short survey, asking them for further private information and details.

In addition, also may try to get users to press the shown 'Allow' button. Those that click on the button will get subscribed to the page's push notifications. Typically, this will mean that users will start receiving unwanted and intrusive advertisements generated by the dubious site. The advertisements could be promoting other equally untrustworthy destinations or contain offers for various adware, browser hijackers, and other PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), presented as seemingly legitimate applications.
