Written by Tomas Meskauskas on (updated)
What kind of page is reistivelbife[.]com?
Reistivelbife[.]com is a rogue site our researchers found while inspecting untrustworthy webpages. This page promotes browser notification spam and redirects visitors to different (likely unreliable/malicious) websites. Pages of this kind are seldom accessed intentionally; most users enter them via redirects caused by webpages that use rogue advertising networks.
When we accessed reistivelbife[.]com, it presented us with a continuously loading fake video player. The page also contained fake CAPTCHA verification - 'Click "Allow" to confirm that you are not a robot' and a moving arrow pointing to the consent option. This deception is intended to trick visitors into enabling reistivelbife[.]com to display browser notifications.
It is noteworthy that what users encounter on and through rogue pages - can vary depending on their IP addresses/ geolocations.
The delivered notifications/ads primarily promote untrustworthy/harmful websites and software, online scams, and even malware. Therefore, through sites like reistivelbife[.]com, users can experience system infections, severe privacy issues, financial losses, and even identity theft.

Browser notification spam in general
We have analyzed thousands of rogue websites; inancukan[.]xyz, separashpar[.]xyz, and dotchaudou[.]com are just a few examples of our newest finds.
The browser notifications displayed by such pages usually endorse deceptive and malicious content. Any legitimate products encountered through these adverts are unlikely to be promoted by their actual developers. Instead, this notification spam is commonly employed by scammers who abuse affiliate programs to obtain illegitimate commissions.
How did reistivelbife[.]com gain permission to deliver spam notifications?
Websites cannot deliver browser notifications without user consent. Hence, you've likely visited reistivelbife[.]com and allowed it to display them. Like most rogues sites, this page uses clickbait to bait visitors into allowing its notifications.
How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?
To avoid receiving undesirable browser notifications, we advise against clicking "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or similar options displayed by dubious webpages. We recommend ignoring the notification delivery requests or denying them (i.e., pressing "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.).
If you experience random unprompted redirects to suspicious sites, it could be due to adware installed onto the browser or system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
