Xervoo[.]net overview

When we were redirected to xervoo[.]net, it displayed a dubious advertisement of "The Ultimate HD" media player. It is pertinent to mention that such sites usually promote adware, browser hijackers, and other untrustworthy software.

The behavior of rogue webpages can depend on visitors' IP addresses/ geolocations. Hence, what visitors to xervoo[.]net see - may vary.

Furthermore, this website requested users to allow its browser notifications. If enabled, xervoo[.]net will use them to run intrusive advertisement campaigns. The delivered notifications/ads typically endorse online scams, untrustworthy/harmful pages and software, and even malware.

Clicking on the "Allow" button presented in xervoo[.]net also redirected us to another spam browser-notification-promoting site.

Browser notification spam in general

The Internet is rife with websites like xervoo[.]net; securestuff[.]xyzworldfreshblog[.]comcoolingcola[.]com, and new-message-service[.]com are just a few examples of those we have analyzed.

The notifications delivered by these pages primarily promote dubious and malicious content. Any encounters with legitimate products via these adverts are not due to marketing from their developers. This promotion is usually undertaken by scammers abusing affiliate programs to acquire illegitimate commissions.

How did xervoo[.]net gain permission to deliver spam notifications?

Websites require user permission to display browser notifications. Therefore, you've likely visited and permitted xervoo[.]net to deliver them. It is noteworthy that many rogue sites use deceptive content (e.g., clickbait, fake CAPTCHA, etc.) to entice/scare visitors into allowing their notifications.

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

We strongly advise against permitting suspicious sites to deliver browser notifications. In other words, the "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or similar options in these pages - must not be clicked. Instead, ignore or deny notification requests (i.e., "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.).

Should your browser be force-opening questionable webpages, it is likely due to installed adware. 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.
