Pushnotstudio.com falls in the category of websites that users are extremely unlikely to visit willingly. After all, the page offers little in terms of useful content, as that is simply not among its priorities. Instead, it is wholly dedicated to the proliferation of a browser-based tactic that sees visitors tricked into unknowingly subscribing to the site's push notifications.

It should be noted that Pushnotstudio.com is either targeting mainly Spanish-speaking users or it scans the incoming IP addresses, determines the visitor's geolocation, and adjusts its messages accordingly. No matter what the case is, users should not trust any of the claims made by the site. Infosec researchers have observed Pushnotstudio.com alluding that it is performing a CAPTCHA check, and asking users to press the shown 'Allow' button to confirm they are not robots. In Spanish, the shown message is:

'Haga click en 'Allow/ Permitir' si no es un robot'

Of course the site is lying, as pressing the button will only enable its push notifications. Afterward, the site can abuse the permissions associated with this otherwise legitimate feature to deliver unwanted and intrusive advertisements.

Users should avoid interacting with the generated advertisements or risk being taken to other untrustworthy destinations, such as sites running fake giveaways, phishing schemes, or spreading various PUPs, adware, browser hijackers and more.
