What is the haenkyouv[.]space website?
Haenkyouv[.]space is a rogue site sharing many common traits with mydesktopdefender.com, multipleprofit-now.life, success-news.org, and thousands of others. It operates by loading questionable content and/or redirecting visitors to other (likely unreliable or malicious) webpages.
Users typically access rogue websites via redirects caused by untrustworthy pages, intrusive ads, or installed PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications).
Haenkyouv[.]space in detail
Whether visitors to haenkyouv[.]space are presented with dubious material and/or redirected elsewhere - depends on their IP addresses/ geolocations. Furthermore, like most rogue sites, haenkyouv[.]space uses deceptive content (fake CAPTCHA verification) to trick users into allowing its browser notifications.
Should the notifications be enabled, the webpage will begin running intrusive advertisement campaigns. The displayed ads endanger device/user safety. Once clicked on, intrusive advertisements redirect to untrustworthy/malicious websites, and some can stealthily download/install software (e.g., PUAs).

Potentially unwanted application overview
PUAs appear legitimate and useful. However, the advertised features are usually nonoperational. What is more, they can have harmful abilities, e.g., force-opening pages, running intrusive ad campaigns, hijacking browsers, and collecting private data. To summarize, unwanted software can cause system infections, serious privacy issues, financial losses, and even lead to identity theft.
How did adware install on my computer?
PUAs can be downloaded/installing together with other programs. This marketing tactic is called "bundling" - packing regular products with additions. Rushed downloads/installations increase the risk of allowing bundled content into the device. Intrusive advertisements are also used to spread PUAs. Once clicked on, the ads can execute scripts to make downloads/installations without user permission. Some PUAs may have "official" download webpages as well.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is recommended to research software and always download from official/verified sources. Untrustworthy download channels, e.g., unofficial and free file-hosting sites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks, etc. - often offer bundled content.
When downloading/installing, it is advised to read terms, study available options, use the "Custom/Advanced" settings to opt-out from all supplements. Intrusive adverts appear harmless; however, they redirect to various questionable websites (e.g., gambling, pornography, adult-dating, etc.).
In case of encounters with such ads and/or redirects, the device must be checked and all suspicious applications and browser extensions/plug-ins detected - removed from it without delay. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.

How to avoid browser notification spam?
Internet users should be very skeptical when being asked to allow notifications. While this is a useful feature that allows you to receive timely news from websites you like, deceptive marketers frequently abuse it.
Only allow notifications from websites that you fully trust. For added security - use an anti-malware application with a real-time web browsing monitor to block shady websites that tries to trick you into allowing spam notifications. We recommend using Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows.
