The Update-ready.com page is created specifically to run a browser-based scheme. To be more precise, it utilizes various deceptive and clickbait messages designed to lure users into unknowingly subscribing to its push notifications. Although this browser feature is perfectly legitimate, many fraudsters abuse it and its permissions, to deliver dubious and unwanted advertisements to users.

The behavior of Update-ready.com could be dependent on a combination of factors. For example, the page may scan incoming IP addresses to determine users' geolocation. Afterward, it may show manipulative messages in a language appropriate for the region. Indeed, the site has been observed to show messages in Russian that falsely imply that the page is conducting a CAPTCHA check. TO prove that they are not robots, users are told to click the 'Allow' button.

The advertisements delivered by such dubious sources should be approached with caution. They may be promoting additional tactics, fake giveaways, phishing schemes, etc. In addition, users may encounter enticing offers for software products that in reality turn out to be intrusive PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), browser hijackers, adware and more.
