WowShortVideos.com appears to be another rogue website. The page has been observed displaying various misleading or clickbait messages as part of a popular browser-based tactic. Users are tricked into pressing the shown 'Allow' button under various pretenses. The goal of the site is to lure users into subscribing to its push notifications. If successful, WowShortVideos.com will be able to start running an intrusive ad campaign, delivering various unwanted advertisements to unsuspecting users.
The tactics used by these rogue websites are various. The hoax page may claim that users must pass a CAPTCHA check, that pressing the button will grant them access to video content or that a file will become available for download. WowShortVideos.com also has been observed promising a 50-dollar gift card to its visitors. In other instances, the site uses a bit more honest scenario, mentioning that by pressing 'Allow' users will begin receiving notifications. The message may be similar to:
'CONGRATULATIONS! You got a $50 gift card! It’s time to go shopping!'
'Click the 'Allow' button to subscribe to the push notifications and continue watching'
Users should keep in mind that these rogue websites may modify their behavior based on specific factors, such as the incoming IP address and geolocation of each user. Furthermore, the generated advertisements could be promoting or causing redirects to various dubious destinations, which may include fake giveaways, phishing portals, technical support tactics, etc.
