Pertonthati.info is a web-site that by using intrusive pop ups, attempts to mislead computer users into subscribing to push notifications. It will display a ‘Click Allow to continue’ message, asking you to subscribe to notifications. If you click the ‘Allow’, then you will start seeing unwanted adverts in form of pop-ups on your desktop. The browser notification spam will promote ‘free’ online games, fake prizes scams, questionable browser plugins, adult web-sites, and adware software bundles as on the image below.
