Danger level 6
Type: Browser Hijackers
Common infection symptoms:
  • Can't be uninstalled via Control Panel
  • Hijacks homepage
  • Installs itself without permissions


Newcityinworld.ru has a very forgiving presence. Its interface is clean, and all we are provided with are the search dialog box and some links representing news articles. Is something missing? Right away, you should notice that the website is not supported by legal information (e.g., a Privacy Policy), and that is a red flag. This information is crucial, and if you do not have access to it, you cannot trust the services provided by the search tool. Unfortunately, those who do not pay attention to that kind of stuff become the victims of this browser hijacker. Some give it the permission to modify the homepage settings, and others find it installed without permission. In both cases, this hijacker is unreliable and must be deleted from the operating system. Needless to say, this will be much easier to understand for those who find the infection installed without their permission. According to our malware research team, you should remove Newcityinworld.ru even if it was installed with your acknowledgment. If you want to learn why this is necessary, you need to look no further, just keep reading.

We have reported the suspicious Mans-find.org recently, and this browser hijacker is practically identical to Newcityinworld.ru. Other hijackers that belong to this faction include Time-to-read.ru, Smartinf.ru, and Funday24.ru. In most cases, these infections travel packaged with adware (e.g., Searchgo or Torrent Search), potentially unwanted programs (e.g., Amigo Browser), and other undesirable, potentially malicious threats. It is possible that you will encounter these threats packaged together as you interact with the installers found on untrustworthy P2P sites targeted at users who speak Russian. Unsurprisingly, Newcityinworld.ru is usually found in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Belarus because its interface is represented in Russian. Unfortunately, unreliable software bundles are not the only source of infection. According to our research, it is also possible that the hijacker will be downloaded by a silent Trojan along with other threats. In either case, it is likely that you will face other threats along with the hijacker, and you cannot ignore them. The suspicious hijacker is identified as a threat, but we have to admit that much more malicious infections exist, and if they have invaded your PC, you need to deal with them first.

Once Newcityinworld.ru infiltrates your operating system, it creates a scheduled task which ensures that default browser is launched representing http://newcityinworld.ru/gvotesm every 23 minutes. Using this feature, the hijacker can display pop-up advertisements, and you must be cautious about those. Note that you might encounter ads even when you browse the Google Search engine. Although the search tool reroutes all queries to this popular search engine, the results shown by it might include the ads linked to the hijacker. Unfortunately, we do not know who the creator of this hijacker works with because legal information is not presented, and, because of that, we have to consider the possibility that it works with malicious parties, including malicious advertisers. These parties could even install their own tracking cookies to spy on you and record sensitive information. If that is not what you want – and we are sure that it is not – you need to remove this infection immediately.

Have you scanned your operating system already? If you have not, do this right away. Once you know which threats have invaded your PC, you can figure out what to do next. If malware is not detected, you can follow the steps below to get rid of the infection. Note that the manual removal operation includes resetting the infected browser, which is a step you should not skip. Unfortunately, it is most likely that you will need to delete Newcityinworld.ru-related threats, in which case, we recommend installing anti-malware software capable of erasing all threats automatically. If you think that this software offers onetime services, you are wrong. After it erases all existing infections it continues to safeguard your operating system against the attacks of other malicious threats. If you want to prevent Trojans, hijackers, adware, and other kinds of threats from invading your PC, this is the software you need to invest in right now.
