What is Sexaview.ru ads?

Sexaview.ru ads expose users to links leading to potentially dangerous websites

Sexaview.ruSexaview.ru is a fake website that has no content to explore

Sexaview.ru is a rogue website. Users can encounter it after being redirected from somewhere else – usually, illegal video streaming or pirated software distribution websites. In rarer cases, people might end up there due to adware installed on their systems, as those infected are more prone to encountering phishing[1] or scam messages, as well as suffer from an increased number of ads on all visited websites.

Upon entry, users are presented with a request to enable push notifications, although they do not always understand the request. The message and the picture in the background portray the prompt as something different, for example, that they need to confirm they aren't robots; hence some people might believe it's a verification process similar to a captcha.[2]

As soon as they press the “Allow” button, they allow Sexaview.ru to deliver ads directly to users' screens. They can include all sorts of misleading messages that would encourage downloading potentially dangerous software, spending money on useless services, or disclosing personal details (such as email or phone) so that commercial and malicious content can be delivered on a regular basis.

Name Sexaview.ru
Type Push notifications, ads, scam, pop-ups
Distribution The intrusive push notifications show up at some point after the “Allow” button within the notification prompt is pushed
Symptoms Push notifications show on the desktop at random time intervals. These pop-ups show fake notices and push scams. Links can also lead to malware-laden sites
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
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 SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner antivirus for effective removal
additional tips Make sure you clean your browsers after you delete PUPs from the system. To do that automatically, you can use ReimageIntego

Symptoms

The website itself is not how people first hear of Sexaview.ru. Instead, they begin to see suspicious pop-ups that show up at random times, interrupting and disturbing their daily activities on the PC. They are not triggered by user actions, which makes the whole situation rather confusing.

Push notifications can be delivered to users on the system level, as long as the browser is running or idling in the background. This means that it does not matter what the user is doing at that point – visiting an unrelated website, streaming a YouTube video, or reading an email they just received.

The contents of these push notifications are also commonly misleading or even malicious. Sexaview.ru, Ddenkno.xyz, Wellsurfacestore.xyz, and many other push notification scam sites use insecure advertising networks, resulting in users being exposed to malicious ads.

Sexaview.ru popupsSexaview.ru ads may include links to malicious websites

For example, they might be told that their systems have been infected with viruses and they need to purchase security software to allegedly remove them. You should never trust these claims or even explore websites that the links might lead you to, as these places are likely to be malicious. Instead, simply remove the pop-ups as we explain below.

Remove the annoying Sexaview.ru push notifications

Initially, many people do not expect to see pop-ups that show up independently of what they are doing on their machine. The conclusion that it must be some kind of virus is reached rather quickly by many, and understandably so. Intrusive pop-up windows that include misleading messages should not be showing up on the desktop randomly.

However, in this instance, the activity is not caused by any type of infection. Since people are tricked into allowing push notifications to be shown (and the activity does not occur until much later), they can't connect the dots and believe that malware must be behind it. In truth, all you have to do to remove Sexaview.ru ads is to access browser settings and block the website from sending you push notifications.

Google Chrome

  • Select Menu > Settings > Advanced.
  • Click on Site Settings > Notifications.
  • Check the Allow section and find the address of the site.
  • Select More Actions and pick Block.Stop notifications on Chrome PC 2

Mozilla Firefox

  • Go to Menu and then select Options.
  • Go to Privacy & Security > Notifications > Settings.
  • Choose Block after picking this option from the drop-down menu.
  • Confirm with Save Changes.Stop notifications on Mozilla Firefox 2

MS Edge (Chromium)

  • Go to Menu and pick Settings.
  • Select Site permissions.
  • Click on Notifications.
  • Find the site URL, and click More actions.
  • Pick Block.Stop notifications on Edge Chromium

Safari

  • Go to the Websites tab and, under General, select Notifications.
  • Select the web address in question, click the drop-down menu and select Deny.Stop notifications on Safari

Check the system for adware and other infections

While removal of push notifications can't be done with the help of security software and needs to be performed manually, it is worth noting that additional checks should be made. Adware[3] is a type of potentially unwanted software that is distributed in software bundles, fake updates, or similar misleading methods, making users install it inadvertently.

Once on the system, adware changes several search and browser settings, rerouting users through different URLs and exposing them to various commercial material, including pop-ups, offers, deals, auto-play, in-text links, and similar ads. A more serious infection should be suspected if you notice strange mouse movements, high resource usage, never seen programs installed on your system, crashes, errors, and similar.

In order to check your computer for malware and remove it effectively, we recommend employing SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or Malwarebytes security software. This would ensure that all the malware-related components are eliminated at once.

If you are experiencing crashes and errors on your device, we recommend running the ReimageIntego repair tool, as these might not be a sign of malware but rather system malfunction. Besides, the app can also clean web browser data for you to stop data tracking and remove junk files for better performance. If you rather do this manually, check the instructions below.

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.
