Gatustox.net is a malicious domain that displays questionable ads and other promotional links. As a rule, users get redirected to such pages inadvertently when clicking on shady ads or because of adware installed on PC. Unfortunately, adware modifies browser settings to display these kinds of websites not allowing users to reset the changes as long as the program is installed. Once visited, Gatustox.net tries to impose various tricks like fake push notifications that, once allowed, generate unwanted advertisements on the desktop. Besides that, Gatustox.net is known to be promoting shady CryptoTab browser designed specifically for crypto-mining. In fact, there is plenty of similar websites that also get paid to advertise third-parties software and no matter whether it is good or not. Note that if the adware has snuck into your system, there is a chance that it also gathers browser-related information (e.g. passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations, etc.) that is therefore transferred to cybercriminals.
Mp3juices.cc is an online instrument allowing users to convert videos (.mp4) into an audio format (.mp3). You simply type in your search query or paste the link of the preferred video to download an audio file. Whilst this site may seem very useful, it uses rogue advertising networks to cause malicious redirects. Such websites contain hidden buttons or links that are accidentally clicked and redirect users to questionable pages that host infectious content. On top of that, Mp3juices.cc tries to trick you into allowing fake push notifications that are meant to settle adware on your computer in order to spread unwanted banners, coupons, and other kinds of advertisements. Such infections can allow cybercriminals to spy on your activity and gather sensitive data like passwords, geolocations, IP-addresses, and sell it to third-parties. In addition, Mp3juices.cc was also spotted to be advertising fake system optimization utilities like MacKeeper and various others.
Keepvid.com or Keepvid.pro are promoted as a legitimate domain that allows downloading, editing and converting videos by pasting URLs from multiple platforms like YouTube and others that provide video content. Users are also offered to install the application or browser extension to manage one-click downloads. All of this may seem very useful, however, whilst downloading a video, Keepvid.com causes sponsored redirects to various pages that can promote unwanted software, display poor ads and, more dangerously, run executable scripts that stealthily infect the system. As a result, you can end up with a malicious application like adware that will bombard your desktop with unwanted banners. On top of that, activated extensions are usually granted with permissions allowing developers to track your data. Legitimate add-ons use this data for creating reports and therefore improving their software. However, shady extensions like Keepvid.com can misuse this information for revenue purposes.
Norobotcapcha2020.info is another online-based scam that clickbaits users into allowing fake push notifications to send malicious ads to the desktop. Such domains are usually visited inadvertently rather than intentionally. When it comes to seeing these redirects at the browser startup, they cannot exist independently, instead, they are buttressed by Potentially Unwanted Programs like adware installed on the system. These apps modify settings in favor of displaying fake pop-ups, intrusive ads, and other content that diminishes the whole experience. Norobotcapcha2020.info forces you into clicking on the "Allow" button under the pretext of bypassing the captcha verification. Once allowed, users are compelled to tolerate spam of ads appearing right on the screen. These advertisements contain redirects to questionable and untrustworthy websites that are created for malvertising purposes. Moreover, potentially unwanted programs are capable of collecting browser-related data (passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations, etc.) and flushing it down to cybercriminals for making a profit.
Psaimoodriy.com is one of the intrusive browser domains that prompt users into allowing fake push notifications. Such pages can be visited by clicking on ads or buttons with hidden links that contain suspicious redirects. Another potential reason for Psaimoodriy.com's appearance is because of unwanted software installed on your system. Developers cunningly design their pages by putting highlighted headlines. These headlines claim that you should click on the Allow button to permit playing a video, downloading a file, etc. Although, it is a social-engineering trick meant to push a flow of unwanted advertisements right to your desktop. These infiltrations are potentially created for fraudulent purposes meaning that your data can be spied and sold to third-parties. Be aware that most of the unwanted apps get installed without the user's consent due to careless behavior on the web.
Ad.doubleclick.net is a legitimate advertising service, that, in some cases, can be related to adware. Although Google ads editors moderate the quality of advertisers, very often this platform is used by unscrupulous vendors. Initially, it is a marketing domain used by Google for displaying a wide range of different ads. On the surface, ads look very appealing and positive, but this is a cover used to tantalize users into clicking on them that may eventually result in a chain of malicious resources like landing pages, free file hosting websites and other unwanted ones. These undesirable visits can force raw users into inadvertently downloading adware on their computers. Adware is classified as a low-level threat that can be easily removed, however, it is very annoying by means of advertisement distribution that is occasionally displayed on the screen. Curiosity and unawareness are the biggest enemies for inexperienced users because they are easily induced into clicking on these ads hence putting their data under a huge risk.
