Wmgf.art

Wmgf.art Description

Wmfg.art is a mostly empty website created to perform a singular function - trick unsuspecting users into falling for a highly used browser-based tactic. Employing various manipulative social-engineering tactics, websites such as Wmfg.art attempt to lure their visitors into subscribing to their push-notification services by clicking the 'Allow' button.

The most common method used by this type of bogus website is to pretend to be conducting a captcha check for bots. Wmfg.art, however, has chosen a different approach. It insinuates that by clicking 'Allow,' visitors will be able to reach some non-specified, possibly explicit, adult content. To make the bait more potent, the website also displays a warning stating that users have only a set amount of seconds to click the button and access the supposed content prominently.

Of course, this is all a front - clicking 'Allow' will simply give Wmfg.art all of the permissions it requires to start generating unsolicited advertisements onto the affected device. By this point, closing the browser will have zero effect on the number or frequency of the shown advertisements. Furthermore, clicking on any of the displayed advertisement could expose the user to serious security risks. The advertisements could redirect to dubious third-party websites offering suspicious allegedly useful software that turns out to be nothing more than PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) or even fake software updates carrying malware threats.
