What is Bikereddint.info

Bikereddint.info is yet another malicious and deceptive site that piles pop-up ads on people and redirects visitors to promoted websites. Seeing ads by Bikereddint.info is not normal or usual, and can be stopped by editing the browser notification permissions, but might also indicate an adware infection.

Bikereddint.info tricks people into allowing the pop-ups and then advertises various sites, some of which are harmful and can even result in people losing money.

Deceptive page design

Bikereddint.info and sites like it, such as studynerdz.com and arberittertwa.info, abuse notifications to push pop-up ads to people. Notifications can be a useful feature — it can update people about changes. Web versions of some apps find this especially useful. A web version of an email client would, for example, be able to alert a user who is logged in about a new letter in their inbox.

Unfortunately, notifications can be abused to act like pop-up ads with links that lead to the advertised sites. Permission from the person is first needed, though. The future victim needs to click on that “Allow†button on the notification alert.

The way that sites like Bikereddint.info accomplish this is by distracting the visitors and having a deceptive page design. Here’s a scenario: the page is loading, text saying “Please tap Allow button to continue†appears, and the person doesn’t think much about it — “this needs me to press Allow so that it can show the content, okayâ€. The “Show notifications†text on the alert is easy to miss so we might click on “Allow†without even thinking about it.

Bikereddint.info’s risky ads

Soon, ads not just from Bikereddint.info, but from hajoopteg.com and other adware sites are piling up, opening new tabs, and redirecting to sponsor sites. This is very bad for the productivity and usability of the web browser that’s being abused, and it’s not always clear how to stop Bikereddint.info’s ads. Bikereddint.info is not a high-profile ad network that people would scrutinize. It’s a short-lived underground page that is not subject to any rules and regulations. While professional and reputable advertising networks reject dishonest ads that might put the viewers in any danger or even just don’t look good enough, Bikereddint.info is free to partner with the types of online businesses that are not afraid to defraud, scam, and trick people.

Many of the ads that Bikereddint.info directs people to are relatively harmless, but some actually threaten the wallets of the people who end up there. I’m talking about pages like sweepstake scams, fake warnings, phishing sites. The fraudulent subscription services that ask visitors to sign up and provide their credit card details to be able to access the content, even when the content is supposed to be free, or the pyramid schemes that ask for an initial investment and promise a high payout (which doesn’t come to fruition). Ads like that are easily dismissed as scams by some, but very many people are still vulnerable. For example, Microsoft conducted a survey which revealed that even young people who are confident in their computer skills lost money to tech support scammers. Stolen private information can be used to perform spear phishing attacks and hack people’s online accounts, leaked credit card info can be used for unauthorized purchases and charges, costing real money.

The original cause

Almost nobody finds Bikereddint.info on their own. The site barely has any content by which to search for it. The origin of the first visit is different. Here are a couple of candidates:

Ads and redirects on websites with low-quality ad networks, such as Adcash. Some websites have ads hidden and look like they’re part of the website, or even trigger a redirect to Bikereddint.info randomly when the site is being interacted with. Adware that’s already installed. This could result not in just Bikereddint.info ads, but other pop-ups, new tabs, and new windows being randomly opened, even ads being injected into the view of random websites. This is a problem bigger than Bikereddint.info — it should be dealt with before it causes an infection by some serious virus.
