OS(es) Affected: Windows has been categorized by infosec researchers as a rogue page.

Tricks Visitors with Fake Scenarios and Clickbait Messages

Users should be aware that the content shown on rogue Web pages can differ based on the geographical location of visitors' IP addresses. Up to this point, the site has been noted to exhibit instructions that prompt users to click on 'Allow' under the pretext of confirming they are not a robot. This misleading tactic emulates a CAPTCHA verification process and aims to deceive visitors into authorizing the website to deliver browser notifications.

Should users grant permission to send notifications, they will be inundated with advertisements that promote online tactics, potentially unsafe software, and potentially even threats of malware. Consequently, engaging with platforms like can result in serious repercussions, including system infections, significant privacy violations, financial detriment and even the risk of identity theft.

Pay Attention to the Red Flags Associated with Fake CAPTCHA Checks

Distinguishing between a fake CAPTCHA check and a legitimate one is crucial to avoid falling victim to online tactics or unsafe activities. Here are some key indicators to help users spot the difference:

  • Design and Layout: Legitimate CAPTCHA checks generally have a consistent design that aligns with recognized industry standards. Be cautious if the CAPTCHA looks poorly designed, contains distorted characters that are barely recognizable, or seems vastly different from what you've encountered before.
  •  Branding: Reputable websites often maintain consistent branding throughout their user interfaces. If the CAPTCHA lacks proper branding elements, such as logos or color schemes associated with the website, it could be suspicious.
  •  Unusual Requests: Legitimate CAPTCHA checks only require users to confirm that they are not bots. Be cautious if the CAPTCHA asks for additional personal information, login credentials, payment details or any other unrelated data.
  •  Language and Grammar: Pay attention to the language used in the CAPTCHA prompt. Poor grammar, misspellings, or awkward sentence structures could indicate a fake CAPTCHA.
  •  Browser Behavior: A legitimate CAPTCHA will generally be displayed directly on the website. Be cautious if the CAPTCHA prompts you to open a new browser window or navigate to a different site to complete the check.
  •  Context: Consider the context in which you encounter the CAPTCHA. If it appears unexpectedly or doesn't seem relevant to the task you're performing, it could be a scam.
  •  Check for Consistency: If you're on a familiar website, ensure that the CAPTCHA's appearance aligns with what you've seen before. Any significant deviation should raise suspicion.

Remember that fraudsters often try to replicate legitimate features to deceive users, so staying vigilant and cautious is essential. If you're unsure about the legitimacy of a CAPTCHA, it's better to err on the side of caution and avoid interacting with it.
