Xervoo.net is a rogue website dedicated to the distribution of misleading and deceptive content. Users are not likely to encounter the page or any of the countless other misleading sites that operate in a similar manner intentionally. No, these frauds are predominantly spread vie forced redirects or as a result of the actions of intrusive PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs).

After landing on Xervoo.net visitors will be presented with manipulative and misleading messages. Typically, the page would try to create the impression that it is running a CAPTCHA check. Users will be urged to click the shown 'Allow' button supposedly to prove that they are not robots. Other common tactics include promising access to additional content, videos, or files ready to be downloaded. Xervoo.net also has been observed to promise its users a $50 gift card. However, the goal of the hoax website is to get the user to subscribe to its push notifications unknowingly.

The fraudsters can then proceed to deliver unwanted and annoying advertisements to the user's device. The advertisements should not be trusted. They could be used to promote shady phishing pages, fake giveaways or suspicious adult-oriented websites. Users also could be shown various offers to download dubious applications that could turn out to be adware, browser hijackers or other PUPs.
