Babunenhemted[.]pro redirect removal instructions
What is babunenhemted[.]pro?
Sharing many similarities with solo85.biz, meknews.biz, ernorvious.com and weads32.com, babunenhemted[.]pro is a rogue website. It is designed to generate redirects to compromised and possibly malicious sites, as well as present unreliable content for user consumption. It is noteworthy, that few visitors to this webpage access it willingly. Most get redirect by intrusive ads (usually hosted by untrustworthy webpages) or by PUAs (potentially unwanted applications) already present in the system. These undesirable apps do no need explicit user permission to be installed onto their devices. Once successfully infiltrated, they cause redirects, run invasive advertisements campaigns and gather intel.
Intrusive adverts promote babunenhemted[.]pro by redirecting to it when clicked. PUAs do so by force-opening new browser tabs/window and likewise generating a redirect. The first action that this rogue site takes is checking users' IP (Internet Protocol) addresses, to learn their geolocation. This data is key to determining its next course of action; babunenhemted[.]pro either redirects users elsewhere and/or begins feeding them questionable content. Regardless of its exact course of action, visiting this website is against recommendations, as visitors to it are bound to encounter malicious content. It is worthy of noting, that babunenhemted[.]pro uses clickbait (e.g. "You need to enable browser notifications to start downloading", "Click here to view newest/viral videos/movies/TV/content", "Press 'Allow' to verify, that you are not a robot", "You page is loading, tap 'Allow' to continue" and many others). By following the clickbait instructions, users consent to this rogue site's browser notifications, thereby inadvertently allowing it to deliver invasive advertisement campaigns. Ads of this type are considered a threat, due to the dangerous websites they redirect to and for their ability to execute scripts, designed to autonomously download/install PUAs. As mentioned previously, unwanted apps themselves are capable of similar redirects and can run intrusive advert campaigns. The ads they deliver (pop-ups, banners, surveys, coupons and etc.) can seriously limit browsing speed and site visibility. Some PUAs can also track data. By spying on users' browsing habits, they can gather their personal information (IP address, geolocation and real-life personal details). What is vital to understand, is that this info is passed onto third parties (potentially, cyber criminals), seeking to misuse it in order to generate revenue. Therefore, presence of data tracking content within devices can lead to severe privacy issues, even result in identity theft. Due to safety risks for both devices and users, all dubious applications must be removed immediately.

Most PUAs have legitimate approaches and offer "practical" and "beneficial" features. However, all the abilities they boast are often faulty, if they are operational at all. It must be stated, that the only purpose of these undesirable applications is to generate profit for their developers; to users - they have no real value. PUAs cause redirects, deliver intrusive advert campaigns and track data.
How did adware install on my computer?
PUAs can be unintentionally installed together with desired software. Developers of these unwanted apps often use a deceptive marketing technique called "bundling". In other words, "bundling" is pre-packing ordinary program installation setups with PUAs. By rushing through download/installation processes (ignoring terms, using pre-set options, skipping steps) - users endanger their devices with potential invasions/infections. Another mode of PUA proliferation is through rogue downloads/install executed by intrusive adverts.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is highly recommended to use only official and verified sources for downloading. Using peer-to-peer sharing networks and other third party downloaders is discouraged, as they are more likely to offer bundled content. It is strongly recommended to always read terms, study possible options, use "Custom/Advanced" settings and opt-out from all additional offers - when downloading/installing software. Prudent browsing is encouraged, e.g. avoiding dubious websites and adverts. Intrusive advertisements often appear legitimate and harmless, however they tend to redirect to unreliable sites (e.g. pornography, adult-dating, gambling and etc.). Should users experience such ads/redirects, they are to inspect their systems and remove all suspicious 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.
