Noorotin[.]biz redirect removal instructions
What is noorotin[.]biz?
There are thousands of rogue websites out there, and noorotin[.]biz is one of them. These sites share many common traits, for example: push4free.com, newsredir.com, dreamteammyfriend.com and etc. are all very similar. They are designed to redirect to untrustworthy and/or malicious sites, as well as present users with questionable content (including click-bait). Visitors to noorotin[.]biz rarely access it willingly; they mostly enter it by being redirected. Such redirects are caused by either clicking on intrusive advertisements (usually hosted by compromised websites) or by PUAs (potentially unwanted applications) already present in the device. It must be noted that these undesirable applications do not need explicit user consent to be installed onto their systems. Once successfully installed, they generate unauthorized redirects to dubious/hazardous sites, deliver invasive advertisement campaigns (e.g. pop-ups, banners, coupons, etc.) and some can even track data.
Websites like noorotin[.]biz are mostly spread by intrusive adverts and PUAs. The aforementioned, once clicked, redirect to such sites; the latter - force-open new browser tabs/windows and redirect users to them. The first action that noorotin[.]biz takes, is checking visitors' IP (Internet Protocol) address, in order to learn their geolocation. This information is crucial in determining the website's further course of action. Depending on geolocation, it either redirects elsewhere and/or presents highly questionable content for user consumption. Regardless, of its exact actions, visitors to noorotin[.]biz are bound to encounter both dubious and malicious material. Another thing worth mentioning, is this site's use of click-bait. It disguises the consent option to its browser notifications with click-bait ("Press Allow to verify, that you are not a robot"). If consented to these notifications, noorotin[.]biz begins running invasive ad campaigns. Adverts of this type are deemed a threat, as they redirect to unreliable/malicious sites and some can even execute scripts to make autonomous downloads of PUAs. Unwanted applications cause redirects to similarly dangerous websites as well. By implementing various tools, PUAs enable third party graphical content. Hence, the adverts they deliver can severely diminish browsing quality (limit site visibility and browsing speed). Certain rogue applications also possess data tracking abilities. By monitoring browsing activity (URLs visited, pages viewed, search engine history and etc.) they can gather traces of personal information (IP address, geolocation and users' real-life identity details). What is pertinent, is that this data is then passed onto third parties (possibly, cyber criminals), seeking to misuse it in order to create profit. In summary, presence of PUAs in one's device can result in browser and system invasions/infections, as well as serious privacy issues (even culminate in identity theft).

PUAs are innumerous, though many share similar traits. Most unwanted apps are designed to appear legitimate and harmless; offering "useful' and "advantageous" features. Despite how good most of these offers sound, often the features they advertise don't operate as promised, if they are functional at all. It must be stressed, that the only purpose of PUAs is to generate revenue for their developers. Therefore, instead of functioning as advertised, they cause redirects, deliver invasive ad campaigns and collect vulnerable information.
How did adware install on my computer?
PUAs can spread through intrusive advertisements and install packs/bundles. "Bundling" is a false marketing method, by which regular software is bundled with rogue applications. When installing programs: by ignoring terms, skipping steps and using pre-set options/settings - users can install unwanted applications onto their devices. Generally, user haste, carelessness and inattentiveness - whilst browsing and downloading/installing software - are the main causes of system invasions/infections.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is highly recommended to use only official and verified sources for all software downloads (preferably, via direct download links). Third party downloaders are expressly advised against, as they are more likely to bundle their programs. When installing software it is advised to read terms and study possible options, as well as use the "Custom/Advanced" settings. All additional apps/features should be opted-out of installing and declined from being downloaded from elsewhere. Browsing advice include avoiding suspicious sites and ads. Intrusive advertisements tend to appear legitimate and harmless, however a telltale sign of their inauthenticity can be the websites they redirect to (e.g. pornography, adult-dating, gambling and etc.). Should users encounter such ads/redirects, they are recommended to inspect their device and remove all dubious applications and/or browser extensions/plug-ins. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
