Soooners[.]biz redirect removal instructions
What is soooners[.]biz?
Similar to novideo.me, joophesh.com, joophesh.com and thousands of others, soooners[.]biz is a rogue website. It is designed to cause redirects to unreliable and malicious sites, as well as to deliver dubious content. Few visitors access soooners[.]biz intentionally, most get redirected to it by intrusive adverts or by PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications). These apps do not need explicit user permission to infiltrate devices. Once successfully installed, they generate redirects, run ad campaigns and track data, relating to browsing activity.
The first thing soooners[.]biz does is check visitor's IP (Internet Protocol) address in order to learn their geolocation. This data is crucial to determining this website's further course of action. Depending on user's geolocation, it either redirects them elsewhere and/or presents them with questionable content. Users should note that soooners[.]biz uses browser notifications. It hides the consent option to said notifications underneath clickbait ("Press 'Allow' to verify, that you are not [a] robot"). If consented to, soooners[.]biz delivers intrusive advertisement campaigns. Ads of this kind are considered to be a threat, due to the untrustworthy/malicious webpages they redirect to and for their ability to execute scripts, designed to download/install PUAs without user permission. As mentioned, these applications also cause redirects and run intrusive ad campaigns. By implementing a variety of tools, they enable third party graphical content. Thereby delivering adverts (pop-ups, banners, coupons, surveys, etc.), which can seriously diminish the browsing quality, as they limit browsing speed and page visibility. What is more, PUAs posses data tracking abilities. By monitoring browsing activity (URLs visited, pages viewed, search engine history, etc.) they collect personal information (IP address, geolocation and personal details). This vulnerable data is then passed onto third parties (potentially, cyber criminals), intent on generating revenue by misusing it. Therefore, PUAs can not only cause various system infiltrations and infections, but also lead to severe privacy issues (even identity theft). To ensure device integrity and user safety, it is paramount to immediately remove all suspicious applications and browser extensions/plug-ins.

There are countless PUAs out there. Most unwanted apps share certain similarities, ones released by the same developers tend to be identical. PUAs usually appear legitimate and lure users into installation by offering various "useful" and "beneficial" features. However, all their advertised abilities and features often are nonoperational. The only goal of all unwanted content is to generate profit for its designers; to users it has no genuine value. Instead, PUAs cause redirects, run intrusive advertisement campaigns and track sensitive data.
How did adware install on my computer?
When clicked, intrusive ads can execute scripts to stealthily download/install PUAs. However, these applications can be allowed onto devices by users themselves. Some unwanted apps have "official" download pages, where they are typically endorsed as "free" and "handy" software. Additionally, PUAs proliferate via download/install setups of other programs. This deceptive marketing method of pre-packing regular software with undesirable or malicious content is called "bundling". Rushed download/installation processes (e.g. ignored terms, skipped steps and sections, used pre-sets, etc.) - increase the risk of system infiltrations and infections.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is advised to always research wanted content to verify its legitimacy, before downloading/installing it. Only official and verified download channels should be used. Peer-to-Peer sharing networks (BitTorrent, eMule, Gnutella, etc.), free file-hosting websites, third party downloaders and similar sources are considered to be untrustworthy; therefore, they are advised against use. Download/installation processes should be treated with care. That includes reading terms, studying possible options, using the "Custom/Advanced" settings and declining to download/install additional apps, tools, features, etc. Intrusive advertisements usually look ordinary and innocuous, however they redirect to gambling, pornography, adult-dating and similar unreliable webpages. Should users experience such ads/redirects, they are strongly recommended to inspect the system and immediately remove all suspect applications and/or browser extensions/plug-ins. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
