When the home page changes in your browsers or you get redirected to this questionable news website, there could be a number of reasons for this. First of all, it is possible that land on a suspicious website that hosts unreliable third-party ads and links, including questionable search engines. If you click on such content, you can easily be forwarded to a malicious page like this one.

Your clicks may have more serious consequences than simple redirections. You may also download software packages that can contain several potentially unwanted programs as well as malicious software installers, such as adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, and fake alerts. This is one of the reasons why we advise you against using shady torrent and freeware pages to download free programs from and visiting any other suspicious websites that display questionable third-party ads in general. These pages can be very misleading and you may easily click on unsafe content if you are not familiar with the page. You should also know that when you are installing software bundles, such as InstallMonster the one that this infection mainly spreads in, there is usually a chance for you to deselect the additional tools and browser changes if you choose the custom option or if you are lucky and the installer reveals these. But even if revealed, such installers try to do it in a way that you would easily overlook it and install all contents by default. This is why you should be very careful with every click you make while browsing the web. We recommend that you do not hesitate any longer; remove Youfreenews.net from your computer.

Basically, this website offers you a search engine and lots of current news article links that lead to pages that might redirect you to malicious websites or display you third-party ads. You should never trust this search engine because it may forward you to manipulated search results page that may contain potentially unreliable third-party ads and sponsored links.
