What is Mous6.biz ads?

Mous6.biz asks to enable notifications to later send malicious ads directly to the screen

Mous6.bizMous6.biz is a fake website that asks users to enable notifications so that ads could be forwarded directly to their desktops

Mous6.biz is a potentially dangerous website you might encounter when surfing the web. It belongs to the category of websites that use various social engineering[1] tricks in order to make people perform actions they would not otherwise perform. In this case, website authors show misleading messages to encourage people to click the “Allow” button within the notification prompt showing upon website entry.

Once that is done, users do not usually notice many changes to their browsers or systems and are instead redirected back to Mous6.biz or similar push notification scam sites, such as Kingwithea.xyz or Inancukan.xyz. Usually, people just forget about the ordeal and continue with their daily routine, only to see intrusive and suspicious Mous6.biz pop-ups.

These are shown on top of all the other applications or programs currently running at the time and could also take people out of fullscreen mode, which can be quite intrusive. The main danger lies within the advertisement links that are shown within, though, as they are usually unsafe. Users might be told that their systems are infected and that they need to download a “removal tool” that would actually be a potentially unwanted or malicious program.

Do not interact with these pop-ups in any way, or you might infect your system with malware, disclose your personal data to cybercriminals, or lose money to useless services that would charge your credit card automatically weekly or monthly. Instead, use the instructions at the bottom to remove Mous6.biz ads for good.

Name Mous6.biz
Type Ads, push notifications, pop-ups, scam
Appearance Desktop notifications start showing up in particular time intervals after clicking on the “Allow” button upon the site entry
Symptoms Pop-ups show up on a regular basis on the screen – these ads often include inappropriate, scam, phishing, or other similar content
Risks Installation of potentially malicious software, loss of money, personal information disclosure
Removal To prevent the site from displaying notifications, access the site settings section via your web browser settings – we explain how to do that below. As a precautionary measure, we recommend checking the system for adware with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner
Other tips After removal of PUPs and malware, we recommend scanning the system with ReimageIntego to clean browser caches and fix virus damage automatically

How does the scam work?

Since users end up on push notification scam websites by accident, it adds to people's confusion quite a bit. Frankly, it plays a major role in the scam scheme, as users are then immediately presented with two unexpected elements – a push notification prompt that asks if notifications should be enabled and a correlating picture and a message in the background, encouraging them to press the “Allow” button.

Here, users are given a reason to follow the instructions and, thanks to the misleading nature of the messages, some users might find it convincing enough:

  • Please tap Allow to continue
  • Download is ready. Click Allow to download your file
  • Click Allow if you are not a robot
  • Can't play this video! Perhaps your browser doesn't allow video playback. Please click the Allow button to watch the video, etc.

Mous6.biz virusRedirects to Mous6.biz might be a sign of adware infection

These messages are crafted in a way so that users would perceive the permission to show notifications as something completely different. For that, they use popular social engineering techniques where they try to confuse users with features that are very familiar to them, e.g., the robot one tries to imitate a legitimate verification process similar to a captcha used to protect websites from harmful DDoS[2] attacks.

Even if you were tricked by these messages, the good news is that it is completely reversible. You can follow the steps below to stop the intrusive push notifications easily.

System checks to perform

It is important to note that suspicious activity on the device, such as malicious and intrusive ads, system crashes, new programs found to be installed on the device, strange mouse movements, high resource usage, unknown processes running in the background, and similar symptoms might be indicative of malware infection. Besides, if you are being constantly redirected to Mous6.biz and similar sites, it might be a sign of an aggressive form of adware.[3]

Therefore, after removing push notifications, we recommend you immediately scan your system with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes, or another powerful security software to ensure that all the malicious processes and files are automatically removed from the system. We also provide manual instructions to check for unwanted extensions and programs below – it won't hurt to check those areas on the PC.

How to prevent from getting adware

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
