What is Liffsandupa.xyz ads?

Liffsandupa.xyz is a malicious website created to scam users

Liffsandupa.xyzPush notifications are not malicious, although they can carry links to insecure websites

Liffsandupa.xyz is used by crooks as a tool to make users subscribe to notifications and then deliver ads to them constantly. In most cases, users do not visit this site intentionally while browser the web on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or any other browsers, but are rather redirected to it from somewhere else (an activity that can also be caused by adware[1] or any only other potentially unwanted program/malware).

Upon entering the website, users would be immediately shown some type of fraudulent message; for example, that they need to verify they are not robots or that a video is about to be played and similar. These messages serve as a reason for users to press the “Allow” button within the notification prompt – an action that then allows the Liffsandupa.xyz to send all types of information via push notifications.

These pop-ups can appear at random times (although this activity does not usually start immediately) above all the other programs currently run on Windows or Mac systems. Likewise, the activity is very prominent on mobile devices using iOS or Android operating systems.

Notifications often include various insecure content: from links to sponsored websites to straight-out scams. It is recommended to avoid interacting with these pop-ups and click on links, as users might be redirected to a malicious website where malware could be downloaded and installed automatically under certain circumstances.

If you have been a victim of such a scam, you should not fret, as there is a way to undo it. Similar to how you allow the notifications to be shown, you can block this permission via the web browser settings. We explain it in our step-by-step removal guide below.

Name Liffsandupa.xyz
Type Push notifications, pop-ups, ads
Distribution The unwanted ad activity starts as soon as the “Allow” button is pressed in the notification prompt
Symptoms Intrusive pop-ups from the site will be shown directly on users' desktops
Risks Installation of potentially unwanted programs or malware, data loss, information leak, financial losses due to encountered scams
Removal Notifications can be disabled via the browser settings; in case you experience more ads and redirects to suspicious sites, you should also get rid of adware – use security software for a quick elimination
Additional steps Cleaning web browsers is just as important when dealing with potentially unwanted programs, so do so by following the instructions below or use ReimageIntego as an automatic fix

A deep-dive into Liffsandupa.xyz scam

If you would enter the URL of Liffsandupa.xyz into the Omnibox of your browser, you would be taken something that looks like a regular website about sports. A generic picture of players from various sports are present, which also incorporates the following message:

Get The Latest Sports Updates From Around The World.

Seems like it could be useful – there are plenty of sports fans out there. However, if you look closely, there is no actual sports content or any other information on the site available but instead, people are asked to allow push notifications to allegedly receive it. This is just a pretense for visitors to click that “Allow” button within the notification prompt, and the website straight out lies about how it works in the first place.

If you check the small print at the bottom, you would see a notice which states:

By Continuing Your Navigation Or Clicking “Allow”, You Accept Our Terms Of Use And Privacy Policy And Agree To Receive Sponsored Content.

Nevertheless, users rarely check sections like a privacy policy or messages like these. In other words, those who press the allow button automatically give permission for the website to show notifications filled with sponsored content, which sometimes may be insecure.

Liffsandupa.xyz virusLiffsandupa.xyz uses deception to make users click on the "Allow" button upon site entry

As a matter of fact, most users do not see this version of the website in the first place. Instead, once redirected, they see a fake message that claims various things, and none of which are true. Here are a few examples you might encounter:

  • Click Allow to watch the video
  • Click Allow to confirm that you are not a robot
  • Your file is ready to download. Press ALLOW to continue
  • Click “Allow” to close this window
  • If you are 18+, click Allow, etc.

As evident, these are all lies, and there is no content to explore after the notification prompt is interacted with. Instead, users are forwarded to similar websites – such as Romancedating.top, Flatcapspriggy.cam, or Allhugeblog.com – where they are asked to enable notifications once more. If they oblige, their screens would be filled with various dangerous content constantly.

Thus, do not interact with push notification prompts, no matter what is said in the background. If you already have, you can revert this decision after accessing the notification settings within your browser. Follow the steps in the next section.

Learn to stop the intrusive pop-ups

There are a couple of reasons why users don't know how to remove Liffsandupa.xyz notifications from their computers. They might think that the activity is caused by a virus rather than the browser. This happens because pop-ups usually don't start showing up immediately after the “Allow” button is pressed within the prompt but much later. Additionally, some people might agree to these notifications by accident after being redirected several times from another website.

In any case, it is not difficult to prevent a website from delivering you notifications – here's how:

What is adware and why should you remove it

While adware is not directly related to push notification activity, it is one of the reasons why users experience random redirects to ad-filled or phishing[2] websites more frequently than those who are not infected. It is also commonly used to track user data and share it with third parties. In other words, it brings nothing to users but negative experiences and even puts their computer security and personal privacy at risk. This is why it is important to check your system for adware carefully.

Adware is commonly spread within software bundle packages, hence most people don't even know they have it installed. Note that it can come as a browser extension or a program installed on the system, so you should check both places. If you need help with this process, we provide detailed instructions below.

Nonetheless, the easiest way to look for adware is by scanning your device with anti-malware software, for example, SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes. It would also check for malware and remove all the malicious components automatically for you. Also, don't forget to clean your browsers from items such as cookies,[3] caches, and other web data. Otherwise, the tracking activity might continue, or you might continue being exposed to ads.

To do this without too much effort, we recommend using ReimageIntego, although we also provide details on how to clean browsers manually. The tool could also help you repair system files if malware managed to damage them.

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.
