Yourvibe1.com DescriptionType: Adware
Yourvibe1.com is yet another deceptive website that relies on false pretenses to lure visitors into subscribing to its push-notification services. This particular tactic has been rising in popularity among certain circles of unscrupulous people constantly and, as a result, countless websites proliferating it have been flooding the Internet. They all operate in a virtually indistinguishable manner.
Visitors will be shown manipulative and deceptive messages aimed at convincing them to click on the displayed 'Allow' button. These fake messages may imply that the site is performing a CAPTCHA check, users will gain access to additional content, or a file will become available for download. Yourbive1.com has been observed by infosec researchers also to employ another misleading scenario. The site will shamelessly claim that the visitor has won a sizeable reward, such as a smartphone. The only implied requirement to receive the reward is, apparently, to press the 'Allow' button.
Of course, none of the shown messages should be trusted. The site simply wants to receive the necessary browser permissions to start running an intrusive ad campaign. Naturally, the advertisements generated by such shady sources are equally untrustworthy. Users who engage with them risk being taken to other hoax websites, offers for various PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), phishing pages, or even compromised sites spreading malware threats.
