What is Bluestringline.com ads?

Bluestringline.com is a fraudulent website that tricks users into subscribing to push notifications

Bluestringline.comBluestringline.com is a malicious website that sends malicious ads to your screen

Bluestringline.com ads could start showing up on your desktop regardless of which browser – Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, MS Edge, or Safari – is open at the time. If this condition is not met, the suspicious activity will disappear immediately, as the push notifications are shown due to the calls from the website with the help of the browser's API.[1]

While the push notification feature was designed having no malicious intent in mind, cybercriminals find ways to abuse it. When it comes to the Bluestringline.com scam, users are typically tricked with misleading messages which encourage them to press the “Allow” button within the prompt.

Those who get tricked later see push notifications from the site, which usually include more phishing[2] messages and malicious links – we do not recommend clicking them and instead block the website from showing you push notifications. Likewise, it is recommended to check the system for adware, as continuous redirects might be a sign of an infection.

Name Bluestringline.com
Type Push notifications, ads, scam, pop-ups
Distribution The website gains access to deliver any information as soon as the “Allow” button is pressed within the push notification prompt
Symptoms Pop-ups show up on a regular basis on the screen – these ads often include inappropriate, scam, phishing, or other similar content
Risks If you click on links provided by the website, you might end up infecting your system with malware/PUPs, disclosing your personal information to cybercriminals, or losing money for useless services

Other checks Make sure you clean your browsers after you delete PUPs from the system. To do that automatically, you can use ReimageIntego

How did I end up on Bluestringline.com?

Most users would not visit potentially dangerous websites, so how do they end up there in the first place? While it is true that most people don't intentionally put themselves in danger online, some of them are willing to risk it despite the known risks. We are talking about peer-to-peer networks and illegal video converting/streaming websites that are known to be the main cause of malicious links and redirects.

It is true that some users are unaware of the dangers of these websites, or they significantly underestimate how malicious they can be and visit them regardless. High-risk sites are known to be poorly secured, which allows cybercriminals to insert malicious links and rend ad-space, which embeds them with automatic scripts.

By clicking any of these, you risk being redirected to Bluestringline.com or other scam sites rather quickly. In addition, you might also download malicious installers without realizing it and install ransomware or other dangerous malware on your system. Thus, please refrain from visiting dubious websites, as they are more dangerous than they might seem.

How to avoid being scammed?

After being redirected, users are usually taken by surprise – they are usually met with what looks like a simple request. If not thinking of it carefully, it is easy to get caught up in a scam rather easily and, due to peculiarities of how it works, only notice the activity much later. These are the messages you might expect upon arriving at Bluestringline.com:

  • Your file is ready to download. Press Allow to continue
  • Just one more step! “Allow” to continue
  • Click Allow to confirm you are not a robot
  • If you are 18+, click Allow
  • Click Allow to win a prize and get it in our shop!

Bluestringline.com virusBluestringline.com might promise fake gifts

Scammers attempt to present the request to enable notifications as something entirely different – it allegedly is to enable video playback or bypass a simple robot check. However, regardless if “Allow” or “Block” is selected, users are simply forwarded to another malicious page, such as Nathanaeldan.pro, News-fesihe.cc, Computeradshub.com, and others.

Adware elimination explained

While users enter push notification scam sites during visits to high-risk sites, there is also a possibility that adware is causing these redirects. Adware is a type of potentially unwanted software that is commonly installed with freeware[3] accidentally. As a result, many people might not even suspect that they have it running in the background.

In order to check your device for infections, we recommend scanning it with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes, or another powerful anti-malware tool. Make sure that the security app is fully updated, and then perform a full system scan. This way, you can be sure that no aggressive adware or malware is running on your system.

After removing all the infections, you are less likely to encounter suspicious content online and reduce the amount of advertising you see while browsing the web. We also recommend cleaning your web browsers as explained below or employing ReimageIntego for a quicker solution.

How to prevent from getting adware

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address.

If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for the server or network manager that needs to monitor connections and activities. VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world.

 

Recover files after data-affecting malware attacks

While much of the data can be accidentally deleted due to various reasons, malware is one of the main culprits that can cause loss of pictures, documents, videos, and other important files. More serious malware infections lead to significant data loss when your documents, system files, and images get encrypted. In particular, ransomware is is a type of malware that focuses on such functions, so your files become useless without an ability to access them.

Even though there is little to no possibility to recover after file-locking threats, some applications have features for data recovery in the system. In some cases, Data Recovery Pro can also help to recover at least some portion of your data after data-locking virus infection or general cyber infection.
