Starmode.biz is a website created with a singular purpose in mind - to conduct a popular browser-based tactic. Countless sites virtually identical to Starmode.biz have already been put on the Internet and more are emerging every single day. Although the specific social-engineering tactic employed by the specific site may differ, they all have the same end goal - to trick the unsuspecting user into clicking the 'Allow' button. Doing so will grant the tactic website the necessary permissions to start delivering unsolicited advertisements to the affected device generating revenue for its creators in the process.
Visitors who land on Starmode.biz will be greeted by a colorful picture of a man and a robot accompanied by the following text:
'Press 'Allow' to verify that you are not robot.'
Of course, this is just a lie designed to trick the unsuspecting user. While Starmode.biz is not unsafe by itself, the advertisements it serves could certainly cause major security issues. Users who click on them could be redirected to deceptive third-party websites trying to peddle some barely functional PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) or a fake software update that could carry anything ranging from adware and browser-hijackers to dangerous malware threats.
It is important for users to take the necessary steps to stop the Starmode.biz tactic as soon as the first signs of its activity on their device is perceived.
