What is awesomenewspush[.]com?
It is highly advisable not to trust the awesomenewspush[.]com or websites that it promotes (opens). Depending on the geolocation of its visitors, awesomenewspush[.]com either loads its deceptive content or opens other pages of this kind.
Typically, websites like awesomenewspush[.]com are promoted using deceptive advertisements, untrustworthy sites, or potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). In other words, users do not visit pages like awesomenewspush[.]com on purpose.
It is worthwhile to mention PUAs can be designed to collect various data and serve advertisements. A couple examples of websites like awesomenewspush[.]com are get-your[.]cash, rtenmy[.]com, and oundoutth[.]biz.
In most cases, websites like awesomenewspush[.]com are designed to promote untrustworthy websites. For example, scams designed to extract personal information (like "You Are Our Winner Today!", "Google Membership Rewards"), download pages for browser hijackers, adware, tech-support scams (like "Your System Detected Some Unusual Activity"), and other pages of this kind.
Therefore, it is strongly recommended not to trust websites that awesomenewspush[.]com opens. Furthermore, this website uses a clickbait technique to trick its visitors into allowing it to show notifications.
It displays a message encouraging visitors to click the "Allow" button (it suggests that by doing that, visitors will be able to continue streaming some media). Typically, pages like awesomenewspush[.]com show notifications that contain deceptive advertisements, links to potentially malicious pages, etc.
Therefore, it is never recommended to allow such pages to show their notifications. It is worthwhile to mention that other pages of this type can use different clickbait techniques.
For example, they can display a fake CAPTCHA test suggesting that visitors must click the "Allow" button to prove that they are not robots. Applications that promote pages like awesomenewspush[.]com can be designed to collect browsing-related details like addresses of visited websites, entered search queries, geolocations, IP addresses, etc.
What is worse, they can be designed to gather sensitive information. That information could be misused for marketing purposes, sold to third parties (potentially cybercriminals), or monetized using other methods.
Therefore, apps o this kind can be the reason behind identity theft, problems related to browsing safety, online privacy, or other issues. Additionally, PUAs can be designed to serve advertisements (for example, coupons, banners, pop-up ads, surveys).
It is common that those ads are used to promote untrustworthy pages or distribute (download, install) unwanted apps by running certain scripts.

To summarize, it is uncommon for websites like awesomenewspush[.]com to be visited intentionally. Web browsers that open untrustworthy pages tend to have some potentially unwanted applications on them.
In such cases, it is advisable to check browsers for unwanted apps and remove them. As a rule, those apps are useless - their main purpose is to serve advertisements, promote shady websites, and (or) gather information about their users.
It is noteworthy that apps of this kind can be advertised as legitimate, useful.
How did adware install on my computer?
More often than not, PUAs are distributed by including them in downloaders or installers for other programs. This distribution method is known as "bundling". It is used to trick users into downloading or installing PUAs together with other programs that they download or install intentionally.
Typically, unwanted offers to download or install bundled potentially unwanted apps can be declined using "Custom", "Advanced" or other settings, or by unticking ticked checkboxes. Users cause unwanted downloads, installations when they leave those settings unchanged.
In some cases, users cause unwanted downloads and installations by clicking deceptive advertisements designed to execute certain scripts.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is advisable to download apps (and files) from official, trustworthy websites via direct download links. Files, programs downloaded via third-party downloaders, Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), unofficial websites, and so on (or installed via third-party installers) should not be trusted.
Also, it is recommended not to finish downloads and installations without checking "Advanced", "Custom" and other settings and declining unwanted offers. Advertisements appearing on questionable pages should not be clicked as well.
More often than not, those ads asre designed to open other sites of this kind or even download or install unwanted software. Any unwanted extensions, add-ons, or plug-ins that are installed on a browser should be removed.
Software of this kind installed on the operating system should be uninstalled too. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
