The behavior of rogue websites might vary based on the visitor's IP address/ geolocation. To elaborate, the content promoted on and via such sites can be determined by the aforementioned data.

When we entered securitypczone[.]site, it ran the "Norton Security - Your PC Might Be Infected With Viruses!" scam.

Browser notification spam in general

Resiastawsix[.]xyzyouractualjournal[.]comsecurityguardplus[.]site, and broadmaster[.]top are merely a few examples of rogue webpages that we have inspected recently.

These websites deliver browser notifications (ads) that promote deceptive and malicious material. It is pertinent to mention that while legitimate products can be encountered via these advertisements – they are highly unlikely to be endorsed in this manner by their developers. Instead, scammers often abuse affiliate programs of genuine content in order to acquire illegitimate commissions for the promotion.

How did securitypczone[.]site gain permission to deliver spam notifications?

Websites can only display browser notifications with user consent. Therefore, you have likely visited securitypczone[.]site and permitted the advertisement delivery by selecting "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or an analogous option presented on this page.

Keep in mind that rogue pages commonly use deception (e.g., clickbait, bogus CAPTCHA verification tests, etc.) to trick visitors into allowing notifications.

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

If you enter a dubious webpage – do you not permit it to deliver browser notifications (i.e., do not press "Allow", "Allow Notifications", etc.). Instead, ignore or deny the notification requests (i.e., click "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.).

Should your browser continuously force-open questionable websites without prompt, it could be due to the presence of advertising-supported software (adware) on 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.
