Browser notification spam in general
We have investigated countless rogue webpages; besteasyclick[.]com, declinerybelfa[.]buzz, continue-to-read[.]com, and lolydatingcool[.]top are just some examples. Websites of this kind display browser notifications that endorse deceptive/malicious material.
While legitimate content may be encountered via these ads – it is unlikely to be promoted by its actual developers or other official parties. It is most probable that this promotion is performed by scammers who abuse the product's affiliate programs in order to acquire illegitimate commissions.
How did fumuluckt[.]com gain permission to deliver spam notifications?
Since websites cannot deliver browser notifications (ads) without user consent, you have likely visited fumuluckt[.]com and clicked "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or an analogous option displayed on this webpage.
It must be mentioned that rogue sites commonly use deception (e.g., fake CAPTCHA verification tests, clickbait, adult-oriented content, etc.) to trick users into enabling notifications.
How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?
To avoid receiving undesirable browser notifications – do not permit dubious websites to deliver them. In other words, do not click "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or any similar options displayed on such pages. Instead, either deny notification delivery – i.e., select "Block", "Block Notifications", etc. – or ignore these requests in their entirety.
It is pertinent to mention that rogue redirects can be generated by advertising-supported software (adware). If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
