Updaterglobal[.]com overview

When we accessed updaterglobal[.]com, it presented us with fake CAPTCHA verification. However, it must be mentioned that the content encountered on and via rogue websites might vary based on the visitor's IP address (geolocation).

During our inspection, this page presented us with bogus CAPTCHA and instructed to - "Select a robot and click 'Allow' to continue". If visitors attempt to complete the test, they will inadvertently enable updaterglobal[.]com to display browser notifications. When we pressed "Allow", it resulted in a redirect to the gomusic[.]info webpage.

Browser notification spam in general

We have analyzed thousands of rogue sites; yourdesktopdataguard[.]sitereportyouridentity[.]site, and updateinfocity[.]com are merely a few examples.

These browser notifications endorse deceptive and malicious content. It is noteworthy that any legitimate content encountered via these advertisements is unlikely to be promoted by its actual developers. Instead, this endorsement is undertaken by scammers abusing the products' affiliate programs to acquire illegitimate commissions.

How did updaterglobal[.]com gain permission to deliver spam notifications?

Websites cannot deliver browser notifications without user consent. Therefore, you have likely entered updaterglobal[.]com and pressed "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or a similar option displayed on this page.

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

If you enter a suspicious webpage, do not permit it to deliver browser notifications - i.e., do not click "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or any analogous option. Instead, ignore or deny notification delivery requests - i.e., select "Block", "Block Notifications", or similar.

Should your browser continuously cause redirects to questionable sites without prompt, it could be due to adware installed onto the device. 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.
