Browser notification spam in general
These sites display browser notifications promoting online scams and malicious content. However, genuine products/services can be encountered through these ads as well. It is highly unlikely for this promotion to be undertaken by the content's actual developers/creators; instead, it is done by scammers abusing affiliate programs in order to obtain illegitimate commissions for the endorsement.
How did resiastawsix[.]xyz gain permission to deliver spam notifications?
Websites need user consent to display browser notifications (adverts). If you are receiving them from resiastawsix[.]xyz – it means that you've likely accessed this webpage at some point and permitted the ad delivery by clicking "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or a similar option presented on it.
How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?
To avoid receiving undesirable browser notifications – do not enable dubious sites to display them (i.e., do not press "Allow", "Allow Notifications", etc.). We advise ignoring or denying notification requests from such webpages (i.e., clicking "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.).
Should you keep experiencing continuous unprompted redirects to suspicious websites, it could be caused by adware installed on 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.
