Browser notification spam in general
Rockdriller[.]top, newsnourish[.]com, and obiumblers[.]com are just a couple examples of rogue sites that we have investigated recently. These pages display browser notifications promoting deceptive and malicious material.
It must be mentioned that while legitimate content may be encountered via these adverts – it is unlikely to be endorsed by its actual developers or other official parties. Instead, this endorsement is most likely performed by scammers who abuse the product's affiliate programs in order to acquire illegitimate commissions.
How did rondureblog[.]com gain permission to deliver spam notifications?
Websites cannot deliver browser notifications without user consent. Therefore, you have likely entered the rondureblog[.]com webpage and selected "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or an analogous option – thus enabling the advertisement delivery.
How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?
If you access a questionable webpage – do not enable it to display browser notifications (i.e., do not click "Allow", "Allow Notifications", etc.). Instead, we advise ignoring or denying notification requests from these pages (i.e., pressing "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.).
Should your browser continuously force-open suspect 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.
