Fraudulent browser push notifications as a form of phishing and advertising is on the increase. As of now, the number of users falling for this trick is on the rise every month. As revealed by the latest Kaspersky research, the monthly number of users affected has increased from 1,722,545 in January to 5,544,530 in September 2019.
