Danger level 6
Type: Adware is an ad server that has probably been taken down by now, but if you stumble upon anything similar, be sure that you can apply the aspects laid down in this description to almost any other ad server out there. Also, it is necessary to realize that and other ad servers cannot physically enter your computer. Hence, if you keep being redirected to these domains, or if you see random pop-up ads, it’s because you either have an adware program installed or your browser settings have been modified to display those notifications. Hence, you need to restore your browser’s settings first.

In fact, when users get exposed to such ad servers, they tend to think that they got infected with a browser hijacker. After all, they browser settings change, and they have to deal with undesirable content. However, that is not truly the case. The point is that you allow the likes of to perform modifications on your browser, even if you are not aware of that. Not to mention that ad servers aren’t that sophisticated to slither into your system uninvited. So, how does that even happen?

Let’s think of all the websites you frequent. Do you tend to access pages that offer free content? Maybe it’s some gaming website or maybe it’s a video streaming page? Or maybe you use an online file converter that has tons of ads on its main page? Whatever it might be, you must have accessed a website that supports third-party advertising. It is hard to say how you could’ve triggered the pop-up. Maybe you clicked the ad yourself, but there are also pages where clicking anywhere launches a pop-up, so you could’ve been taken by surprise, too.

Either way, when pop-up appears, it looks like a notification that says you will be able to access more content if you allow notifications. If you don’t pay attention to what’s happening, you might also think that the pop-up is part of the website you’ve been browsing. Hence, the moment you click the Allow notifications button, you might think that you will gain access to more diverse content. Alas, the only thing that you gain from that is commercial ads. Because by clicking that button you allow the adware server to modify your browser’s settings.

As a result, (or any other domain for that matter) can start collecting information on your web browsing habits. It can figure out your likes and preferences, and with that, it can, later on, generate commercial ads. You probably won’t even notice that those are commercial ads at first. Sure, you will see the increase of random pop-ups, but if they are related to your likes and preferences, you might think that those are just something you need, right?

Unfortunately, this is where the security risks associated with come through. While this domain doesn’t try to infect you with malware or anything like that, it is too limited to review all the content it promotes. Therefore, it doesn’t check the outgoing links that get embedded in its advertising space. This is a serious security loophole that can be exploited by cybercriminals.

Please note that malware infection through and other ad servers is highly unlikely, but the possibility is there. More often than not, you could be exposed to various marketing schemes where they try to steal your personal information. Whatever it might be, the bottom line is that it all comes through, and you shouldn’t tolerate this adware server. So you should get rid of the modifications, and all the apps that are associated with it.

You can use the manual instructions below to restore your browser to default. You should also scan your computer with a licensed security tool because you are bound to have more unwanted applications installed. If a full system scan detects other threats, delete them all automatically. Finally, review your browsing habits, and be careful about the pages you visit. You may need a powerful security tool, but it won’t help if you don’t break the old habits that expose you to various threats in the first place. Be responsible about your time online.
