If you experience sudden redirections to annoying survey pages while you are surfing the web, your computer could be affected by Yourlink.online. This is an adware server, which can show you potentially unreliable advertisements in the form of surveys where you are supposed to win an iPhone X smart phone; at least, right now this seems to be the main focus of this adware server. We have found that it is very similar to a previous threat called 'YouTube Reward Center' Pop-Up. If you engage with such surveys, you may disclose personal information or drop infections. In fact, it is quite likely that the reason for your exposure to this ad server is that your PC is infected with malware, such as adware. This also means, of course, that it may not be sufficient to remove Yourlink.online alone. But, for the details, please continue reading our report.
As we have just mentioned, there are two basic options for you to be presented with the potentially unreliable survey pages this adware server may redirect you to. First, the less problematic version is that you click on a corrupt third-party advertisement or a compromised link while visiting a suspicious website, such as an online gambling, gaming, dating, video streaming, and file-sharing site. One click on the wrong content can easily forward you to such a malicious page promoted by an adware server like this one. Second, or the worse case, when your computer was previously infected with malware, such as an adware program, a browser hijacker, and a potentially unwanted program, and this threat redirects you to a website promoted by this ad server.
In the second case it is quite likely that you will find several malware threats on your computer as these infections mostly travel on the web in freeware bundles. A bundle can be packed with a bunch of potentially unwanted programs as well as malicious software installers. If you download a free program from a shady torrent site, for example, it is quite likely that you will download a whole bundle of threats instead. Also, when you click on unsafe third-party advertisements on questionable websites (dating, porn, file-sharing, gaming, and betting), you can drop infections or a bundle onto your machine. In addition to all this, you can make things only worse when your computer is already infected because you could always be exposed to corrupt third-party content whatever websites you land on. This is why we believe that it is best to use a malware scanner to find all threats on board once you delete Yourlink.online.
This adware server can redirect you to any potentially unreliable promoted websites, but currently it seems to be all about the new iPhone X. So when you find yourself on a page like "yourlink.online/iphone-en2/?device=generic%20web%20browser%20Desktop&isp=privax%20ltd&aref=http%3A%2F%2Frnpol.adsb4trk.com%2Fsite%2Fredirectpage%3Fsid%3D69143%26hv%3Drdtri5a8bc34f602ad260232095%26hid%3D325556#b", chances are your computer has been infected. Our research indicates that this adware server mainly operates in Pakistan, the Syrian Arab Republic, Tunisia, Croatia, Morocco, and Serbia. This survey page may scam you to believe that you could win an iPhone X for free; however, you may be asked to enter some personal data, including your e-mail address, which then can be used to target you with customized advertising. All in all, it is not safe to end up on pages offered by adware servers either your PC is infected or not. We advise you to act right now and remove Yourlink.online from your computer.
There are two things basically you can do to avoid this adware server. First, it is best to reset all your possibly affected browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. Please follow our instructions below if you have never done this before. If you still were to experience redirection to this adware server, we suggest that you proceed to the second option and uninstall all suspicious applications you have installed recently. But even this may not be enough since there could be more serious threats hiding on your system. Thus, we advise you to install a reliable malware removal program, such as SpyHunter. What could be more efficient than automatic protection against all existing threats?
