Mansjournaln.info

Mansjournaln.info is not a simple URL even though it might seem to be one at first glance, we can assure you. It has become clear for specialists at pcthreat.com in the blink of an eye that it is a domain which causes redirections to random websites with the commercial content. This happens periodically, but users usually do not see the domain Mansjournaln.info anywhere because a redirection to another page happens very quickly. Since Mansjournaln.info is closely associated with advertisements and pages displaying ads, it has been classified by researchers as an adware server. Generally speaking, its one and only ...

It is very likely that if the hijacker takes over your browsers – and it does that by replacing the homepage URL – you have installed the extension. If the extension is not involved, another piece of software might be responsible for introducing you to the hijacker. Is it possible that ...
