OS(es) Affected: Windows is little more than a deceptive website created with a single purpose - to conduct a popular browser-based tactic. Visitors who land on it, almost always involuntarily through forced redirects, will be presented with various fake alert or error messages that will try to convince them to click on an 'Allow' button. Doing so will grant all of the browser permissions it requires to start delivering unsolicited advertisements on the affected device generating monetary gains for its creators in the process.

The exact scenario run by the website could vary. Still, one observed variant is for to display a buffering bar creating the impression that a video is being prevented from being played. Accompanying it will be the following text:

'Click the «Allow» button to subscribe to the push notifications and continue watching.'

Users who do not pay enough attention or let their curiosity get the better of them will fall right for's trap. They will soon begin to notice an abnormal amount of advertisements that could even start to interfere with the normal browsing experience on the affected device.

They could be redirected to untrustworthy or outright compromised third-party websites.
