What is mp3juices[.]cc?

Mp3juices[.]cc is a website that offers users to download audio files in the .mp3 format from a chosen source (website). This website should not be trusted and used because it uses rogue advertising networks. Simply said, people who use this website get redirected to various untrustworthy websites.

mp3juices[.]cc pop-up redirects

One of the websites that get opened through mp3juices[.]cc is notification-list[.]com. Once visited, this website either loads some shady content or it opens about two or three other questionable pages. It is very likely that mp3juices[.]cc may redirect its users to other pages that operate like notification-list[.]com as well. It may also open pages that contain deceptive ads that, if clicked, would open more untrustworthy sites or cause unwanted downloads, installations. Research shows that mp3juices[.]cc opens a page that is designed to advertise a potentially unwanted application (PUA) called MacKeeper. This app is distributed by using deceptive methods (e.g., by including it in download and/or installation setups of other software. Apps like MacKeeper are called PUAs because people often download and install them unintentionally. Furthermore, it is common for pages like mp3juices[.]cc to open deceptive pages that display fake notifications related to detected viruses, errors, and so on. Typically, such pages encourage visitors to remove fake detections with some shady software that can be dowloaded through them. Quite often pages like mp3juices[.]cc lead to sites that are used to promote other types of PUAs such as adware, browser hijackers, and so on. One more problem with mp3juices[.]cc is that it asks for a permission to show notifications. If allowed, mp3juices[.]cc starts to display pop-up ads/notifications that promote various PUAs, contain links to shady pages, and so on. To sum up, neither mp3juices[.]cc or websites that are being opened through it can be trusted, that is why it is not safe to use its audio downloading service, and it should not be done.

Examples of other similar pages are mpgun[.]com, convertisseur-youtube-mp3[.]net and notube[.]net. What most websites of this type have in common is that they contain deceptive ads and/or lead users to untrustworthy websites. It is worth mentioning that many of them offer to download videos (or converted audios) from YouTube, which is not legal.

How did adware install on my computer?

People usually download and install PUAs by clicking deceptive advertisements that are designed to execute certain scripts, or when developers distribute them by using a "bundling" method. They use this method to trick people into downloading and/or installing PUAs through setups of software. To be more precise, they include PUAs in setups as additional offers and hide information about them in their settings like "Custom", "Advanced", etc. People often download and install various software without checking any of those setting, which means they leave them unchanged as well. By leaving them unchanged they allow for PUAs to be downloaded and/or installed through setups of software that was downloaded and/or installed willingly.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

We do not recommend to use third party software downloaders, installers, torrents clients, eMule (and other Peer-to-Peer) networks, unofficial pages and other similar channels as tools to download or install any software. It should be done by using official websites and direct download links. Moreover, it is not any less important to check download and installation setups for "Custom", "Advanced", "Manual" and other similar settings. Quite often they include offers to download and/or install additional, potentially unwanted software. Furthermore, we advise against clicking intrusive ads, especially when visiting some unofficial, questionable pages. Those ads often cause redirects to potentially malicious pages or download, install unwanted apps. If there are any unwanted, suspicious extensions, plug-ins or add-ons installed on a browser (or programs of this kind on the operating system), then they should be removed/uninstalled right away. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
