yourhotfeed.com is a domain used to miss-use push notifications for spamming cellphones and computers with push notifications. Such messages are used by many legitimate sites to inform about updates. However, they are easy to exploit for advertising as well. This is done by scamming people in subscribing to messages on scam pages, similar to yourhotfeed.com by giving a fake offer for the ones that allow the notifications in their browser. Typically, one is offered free movie, or some “browser legitimacy” check is performed, however almost never such offer is true. For example, this website uses fake movie pages that stop displaying movie after several seconds and redirects to subscription page. If the user clicks allow, they are redirected to a fail page and still won’t be able to see movie. But now, Yourhotfeed scammers will be able to show you plenty of ads.

When push notifications are enabled, a program on your device or browser starts regularly checking if some updates exists and show notification popups. While one might expect updates from the sites their visit, yourhotfeed.com starts showing ads from various advertising networks. As they are not directly connected to yourhotfeed.com website, it is hard to comprehend how one should stop them from appearing. When such website is blocked, 10 new ones are launched as it cost very little to start the website by just copying old one.
The worst of this yourhotfeed.com does not screen advertisings. They do not really care about products they offer or if their visitors get infected with malware. Sure, push notification sites don’t get decent advertising networks working with them, so anyone paying can get promoted using websites like yourhotfeed.com .
