The website is another rogue page confirmed to be running popular online tactics. More specifically, the site was observed showing deceptive messages, as part of a browser-based tactic taking advantage of the legitimate push notifications feature. These untrustworthy pages often rely on clickbait messages and decoy scenarios to mask their true intentions. It also should be mentioned that users rarely open sites of this type intentionally. In most cases, they are taken there as a result of rogue advertising networks or the actions of an intrusive PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program).

Another important characteristic of rogue websites is that they may be able to switch the displayed deceptive content. By analyzing the incoming IP addresses, the dubious website may discern the user's specific geolocation and show a different, misleading scenario. One of the confirmed messages shown by is 'CLICK ALLOW TO CONFIRM THAT YOU ARE NOT A ROBOT!' The implication is clear - users must pass the supposed check if they want to access the content of the page.

In reality, the message is entirely fake and no such content exists. Instead, when users interact with such untrustworthy sites and click on the 'Allow' button they may trigger redirects, while also being subscribed to the particular site's push notifications. Typically, the deceptive page will abuse the received browser privileges to deliver intrusive advertisements to the user's device that could be promoting additional tactics, suspicious adult websites, platforms spreading PUPs, etc.
