If you get constantly redirected to 2solo.biz, you probably have an adware program installed on your computer. Or maybe your browser settings were modified to display commercial ads. Whichever it might be, the reality is that you get exposed to potentially harmful content, and you need to do everything in your power to avoid that. Hence, you should run a full system scan with a reliable antispyware application to find potentially unwanted programs on-board (provided there are any), and then you should reset your browser’s settings to default to get rid of all the modifications that might be associated with 2solo.biz.
All by itself, 2solo.biz is an adware server that displays commercial ads when you trigger something that redirects your browser to that site. The domain itself is not there on your computer, so you do not have to worry about how to kill the website or anything like that. You just need to avoid the sites that are somehow associated with this domain and then delete all the cookies and other settings on your browser that could be related to this server. So, in a sense, we cannot say that 2solo.biz is a malicious threat. It’s more like it can “enable” other malicious actors to reach you, and this is where your web browsing habits come into the picture.
When you download new programs, you have to make sure that you download them from reliable and official sources. Please refrain from download apps from file-sharing pages because they often distribute software bundles that install additional apps on your PC. Although it is possible to deselect unwanted applications, you might accidentally add some program that is somehow associated with 2solo.biz if you go through the installation process automatically. Thus, it is strongly recommended that you only download programs from their official sources.
Also, whenever you browse the web, you have to be careful of web pages that are full of commercial advertisements. For instance, some pages display a lot of pop-ups. Some pages launch redirects and commercial offers even if you click anywhere on the page. While it is not illegal and that’s how those pages make a living, some of those redirects could actually redirect you to 2solo.biz, and that’s where the domain would display a notification that would ask you to “allow notifications” on your browser.
The notifications include all sorts of commercial ads that the adware server might generate for you based on your web browsing habits. There might be different examples of commercial content 2solo.biz could display to you. In some cases, it can be online video ads, maybe come captcha or even an online shopping list. The point is that at first, the ads may look random, but the longer you are exposed to this domain and its ads, the more custom they get.
This might mean that 2solo.biz or any program that is associated with it employs tracking cookies to read your web browsing history. That’s not something terribly shady or illegal. A lot of websites and applications do that to make your web browsing a customized experience. However, the problem with something like 2solo.biz is that the domain cannot review the third-party content it promotes, and (as we’ve mentioned before), it can become a mediator between you and a malevolent third party.
In other words, someone else might make use of 2solo.biz to expose you to potentially harmful content, and if that happens, a malicious infection could be just a click away. You can avoid that by removing all the programs and settings that are related to 2solo.biz from your system.
As mentioned, you can reset your browser’s settings to default. It would also be a good idea to scan your PC with a licensed security application. Although you can remove most of the potentially unwanted programs via Control Panel, some files might be more resistant to removal than others. Hence, you should consider terminating them automatically with a reliable security tool.
Finally, do review your web browsing habits because they are a crucial part of your cybersecurity practices. Stay away from unfamiliar websites, and be sure that you download programs only from reliable sources. When in doubt, don’t hesitate to do a little bit of research.
