Thekolnews.site Description

Type: Adware

Despite having news in its name, users will not get any such relevant information from the Thekolnews.site. After all, this is not the purpose of this page. Instead, visitors will be subjected to a popular browser-based tactic. Pages of this type employ numerous social engineering and misleading tricks to get unsuspecting users to subscribe to their push notifications. Some examples of such deceptive websites include Eakwhenspo.work, Imsemy.com and Myhypeposts.com.

Afterward, the con websites can begin generating revenue for their operators through an intrusive ad campaign. The most widely used scenario, and the one observed on Thekolnews.site, is pretending to be doing a CAPTCHA check for bots. Users will be presented with an image of a human and a robot accompanied by a message similar to:

'Press 'Allow' to verify, that you are not a robot'

Of course, this is not at all what will happen when users click the displayed 'Allow' button. Instead, they will grant broad browser permissions to the hoax website. Thekolnews.site will then be able to freely deliver unwanted and intrusive advertisements to the device via the affected browser.

The influx of advertisements could impact the browsing experience drastically. Furthermore, users who are not careful could be tricked by the advertisements into downloading annoying PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) or redirected to more serious hoax websites, phishing pages, and compromised domains that could be spreading malware threats.
