Robo-checker.top Adware Summary
The robo-checker.top website uses a false CAPTCHA to verify that the visitors of the website are not robots. It’s one of the baiting strategies used by websites like this to persuade visitors to click the “Allow” button. Users receive messages after clicking that button that promotes numerous frauds, dodgy websites, viruses, browser hijackers, and other malicious software.
