Reminews.com Description

Reminews.com is a questionable website designed to deliver dubious content to users. Reminews.com can either display the content itself or redirect users to other rogue websites. There are countless pages on the net that operate in a virtually identical way as Reminews.com. Users that land on such pages most likely have a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) lurking on their computers that is causing the redirects frequently. The exact behavior of Reminews.com is determined by scanning the visitor's IP address and then using it to figure out the user's geolocation. 

The website also can try to run a popular browser-based tactic. By displaying misleading alert or warning messages, it could try to convince users into clicking the 'Allow' button and subscribing to its push notification services. The exact scenario might vary, but Reminew.com has been observed to pretend that a video clip cannot be played. Displayed prominently, will be the following message:

'Press 'Allow' to watch video'

Should the user activate the browser notifications, it would give Reminew.com broad permissions that it will then abuse to run an intrusive advertising campaign. The displayed advertisements could diminish the user's experience on the affected device severely, by causing browser slowdowns and even covering the legitimate pages viewed at the time. Engaging with the advertisements could expose the users to additional security risks. Through forced redirects, they can be taken to more rogue websites, and domains spreading PUPs or running phishing or technical support tactics.
