Earthheartsmith[.]top overview

The behavior of rogue websites (i.e., what they host/promote) may differ depending on the visitor's IP address (geolocation). At the time of research, earthheartsmith[.]top presented us with a bogus CAPTCHA verification test. The page displayed an illustration depicting an officer-type figure saying to a robot – "Press 'Allow' to verify, that you are not a robot".

By completing this test, the visitor will inadvertently enable earthheartsmith[.]top to deliver browser notifications. These advertisements primarily endorse online scams, untrustworthy/hazardous software, and even malware.

To summarize, through webpages like earthheartsmith[.]top – users can experience system infections, serious privacy issues, financial losses, and identity theft.

Browser notification spam in general

We have examined thousands of rogue sites; geikal.co[.]in, desktopleads[.]info, stormforge[.]top, update-mac[.]com, and protectalldevices[.]space are merely some examples. While their appearance can differ and look legitimate, these webpages deliver browser notifications that promote deceptive/malicious content.

However, while genuine products/services may be encountered via these adverts – they are unlikely to be endorsed by their actual developers. It is most probable that this promotion is undertaken by scammers who abuse the content's affiliate programs in order to acquire illegitimate commissions.

How did earthheartsmith[.]top gain permission to deliver spam notifications?

Websites cannot display browser notifications without user consent. Hence, you've likely entered the earthheartsmith[.]top page and clicked "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or an analogous option – thus enabling the advertisement delivery.

Keep in mind that rogue sites commonly use deception (e.g., clickbait, fake CAPTCHA verification, adult-oriented content, etc.) to promote browser notifications.

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

To avoid receiving unwanted browser notifications – do not permit suspect pages to deliver them (i.e., do not click "Allow", "Allow Notifications", etc.). Instead, ignore or deny notification requests from such webpages (i.e., press "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.).

Should your browser continuously force-open questionable sites without prompt, it could be due to adware installed onto it or the 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.
