What is Eruthoxup.com ads?

Eruthoxup.com was created to scam users by showing fake messages

Eruthoxup.comEruthoxup.com can convince you to press the Allow button by using fake messages

Eruthoxup.com ads are extremely intrusive due to them showing up randomly directly on users' screens, usually in the bottom-right or top-left corner. It does not matter if they watch a movie or browse a favorite website – the push notification can show up at any time. They also often include links to potentially dangerous websites, where users might be tricked into subscribing for more notifications, provide their personal information or even install malware.

The issue affects all popular web browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, MS Edge, or Safari, as push notifications work on the system level. The reason for this is because users themselves allow Eruthoxup.com to send information via this API – Application Programming Interface.[1]

In order for this process to be successful, users need to press the “Allow” button within the notification prompt upon website entry. Here, crooks are commonly using misleading scam messages and social engineering[2] tricks to convince visitors that doing so is something that is required. In reality, it is nothing but a scam and the website itself has no other purpose than that. If you stumbled upon it, the best thing to do is to leave it immediately.

If you have no idea how these pop-ups came to be in the first place, you should check out this article to find out more. Of course, we provide detailed instructions on how to remove the unwanted push notifications once and for all, as well as check your system to ensure it is clean.

Name Eruthoxup.com
Type Push notifications, ads, scam
Distribution The unwanted activity starts as soon as the “Allow” button is pressed via the notification prompt
Symptoms Push notifications show on the desktop at random time intervals. These popups show fake notices and push scams. Links can also lead to malware-laden sites
Dangers Users might suffer from monetary losses, install malware or potentially unwanted programs on their systems, or disclose their sensitive data to cybercrooks
REmoval You can stop the website from showing you notifications at any time – access browser settings for that. You should also check your system for adware with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner
Further steps Make sure you clean your browsers after you delete PUPs from the system. To do that automatically, you can use ReimageIntego

There are billions of websites on the internet. Some of them are very informative and useful, while others – not so much. From this pool, we go into the gray area – some websites are created for one and only purpose to scam visitors for one reason or another.

Push notification scams are very prevalent and are created at a rapid pace. We just recently discussed Mnemicguaza.cam, Yourhotfeed.com, and Offersworld4u.online – they are practically identical to Eruthoxup.com when it comes to distribution and operation techniques.

Distribution

If you see redirects to suspicious sites often, which is also accompanied by an increased number of pop-ups, banners, auto-play, and other ads, you might have adware installed on your device. It is a type of potentially unwanted software that spreads through deceptive channels, such as fake advertisements (for example, you are asked to install Flash Player because it allegedly wasn't detected on your system) or software bundles.

Software bundling is a very prevalent method for the distribution of various potentially unwanted applications and even malware. You should always check which sources you are installing software from, as illegal software distribution websites are often filled with adware and malware. Thus, never visit torrent, crack, and similar sites – they can be dangerous. Instead, rely on trusted sources.

Eruthoxup.com virusRedirects to malicious websites might be caused by adware infection

Nonetheless, even most popular websites like Cnet or Softonic bundle a bunch of software, so you should always be careful. Always pick Advanced instead of Recommended installation settings and decline all the offers on the way.

If you indeed suspect that you have adware installed, you should definitely check your system with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes, or another reputable security tool. Of course, you can also look for adware yourself, although this might be a bit difficult if you have many apps installed on your device. Besides, some programs might suddenly go rogue.

Cleaning your web browsers is also vital after adware or malware elimination – we recommend using ReimageIntego for the job. You can also do this as per the instructions we provide at the bottom of this post.

Alternatively, you could have been redirected to Eruthoxup.com by accident – you clicked a link or got rerouted by automatic URL redirection. This can happen to anyone at any time, although the possibility decreases when more secure websites are visited rather than high-risk ones. Once again, stay away from illegal software distribution sites, video streaming, and similar.

Operation

You have probably previously encountered a push notification prompt after accessing a completely legitimate website. The feature can be useful, and many websites employ it. All they do is ask users for permission to show them push notifications to provide the freshest information they are interested in. Of course, visitors are free to decline this offer and never be bothered by request again (as long as they don't delete browser cookies).[3]

However, unfair individuals quickly realized that the push notification feature can be used to proliferate ads directly to users' screens and all they had to do is convince them to press that Allow button. As we already mentioned, Eruthoxup.com does not have any other purpose besides this goal.

Upon entering the site after being redirected to it, users can encounter a push notification prompt that asks whether they want the notifications to be shown, and a message displayed n the background. This is where the social engineering tricks come in – people are fed misleading information and start believing the push notification prompt is something else. For example:

Click Allow to verify, that you are not a robot

Alternatively, users are given some type of promise of underlying content, such as a video or some type of download. In some cases, they are told that the only way to close the browser tab is by pressing the “Allow” button. These are all fake messages you should never believe.

The best thing to do is leave the page immediately without even pressing “Block,” as you are likely to be redirected to a similar or even more malicious website.

How to prevent from getting adware

Choose a proper web browser and improve your safety with a VPN tool

Online spying has got momentum in recent years and people are getting more and more interested in how to protect their privacy online. One of the basic means to add a layer of security – choose the most private and secure web browser. Although web browsers can't grant full privacy protection and security, some of them are much better at sandboxing, HTTPS upgrading, active content blocking, tracking blocking, phishing protection, and similar privacy-oriented features. However, if you want true anonymity, we suggest you employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN – it can encrypt all the traffic that comes and goes out of your computer, preventing tracking completely.

 

Lost your files? Use data recovery software

While some files located on any computer are replaceable or useless, others can be extremely valuable. Family photos, work documents, school projects – these are types of files that we don't want to lose. Unfortunately, there are many ways how unexpected data loss can occur: power cuts, Blue Screen of Death errors, hardware failures, crypto-malware attack, or even accidental deletion.

To ensure that all the files remain intact, you should prepare regular data backups. You can choose cloud-based or physical copies you could restore from later in case of a disaster. If your backups were lost as well or you never bothered to prepare any, Data Recovery Pro can be your only hope to retrieve your invaluable files.
