Blastnotificationx.com adware is a cyber infection that causes online traffic redirects to various insecure websites.

Blastnotificationx.com is a potentially unwanted program-related website that delivers notifications and messages directly to your desktop. This PUP uses social engineering tactics[1] to lure people into allowing various notifications and commercial content to their web browser. When people click “Allow” button, they subscribe to different kinds of messages, like advertisements, promotional content, and notifications on the desktop. However, since this is an adware-type virus, it causes redirects to websites that may contain malicious material and lead to more dangerous cyber infections. You need to get rid of the program and most important clear the preferences on your browser, so all unwanted behavior stops.
