27news[.]biz redirect removal instructions
What is 27news[.]biz?
When visited, 27news[.]biz opens other untrustworthy pages or loads dubious content. It functions like many other rogue websites including, for example, wwserch42[.]biz, android-recaptcha[.]info and find-soulmates[.]com. In most cases, people arrive at these sites due to potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) installed on browsers or computers. PUAs usually collect details relating to users' browsing habits and/or display various ads.
Most PUAs open websites such as 27news[.]biz in a new browser windows or tabs. When opened, they redirect visitors to about two or three other untrusted pages or load dubious content. They often ask visitors for permission to show notifications using a 'clickbait' technique. This particular page states that, by clicking "Allow", visitors will prove that they are not 'robots'. If clicked, however, the button allows 27news[.]biz to show notifications (various ads, links to dubious pages, and so on). People who have PUAs installed on their browsers and/or computers are forced to see various advertisements. These PUAs display coupons, surveys, banners, pop-ups and ads in other forms. If clicked, these usually open untrustworthy web pages. In some cases, they run scripts that cause download/installation of unwanted software. Furthermore, installed PUAs often record information - browsing data such as IP addresses, geolocations, addresses of visited pages, entered search queries, and other details of this kind. They sometimes also record sensitive details that developers sell to third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who would misuse private information to generate revenue. This might cause problems relating to privacy, browsing safety, and some people might even become victims of identity theft.

To eliminate possible malware infections, scan your computer with legitimate antivirus software. Our security researchers recommend using Malwarebytes.
Typically, developers of these apps promote them as capable of providing useful features, however, these are simply attempts to trick people into downloading/installing them. Once installed, they simply perform actions to help the developers to generate revenue. They do not deliver the functionality promised or any other value.
How did adware install on my computer?
Some potentially unwanted apps can be downloaded from their websites, however, people generally download or install them through clicked intrusive ads or together with other software. PUAs are downloaded/installed together with other software when developers include them into various download/installation setups. This distribution method is called "bundling". Typically, information about additionally-included apps is hidden in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar parts of the set-ups. Many people allow PUAs to be downloaded and/or installed through set-ups simply by leaving all settings/options unchanged.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications
Do not use dubious websites, Peer-to-Peer networks (torrent clients, eMule), third party downloaders, installers or other similar channels to download or install programs. Download from official websites and through direct download links only. Check all download or installation setups containing "Custom", "Advanced" and other settings. Dismiss any offers to download or install PUAs. Do not click intrusive ads, especially if they are shown on dubious web pages. Some might be capable of running scripts that download/install unwanted apps, however, they usually open untrustworthy websites. In any case, it is not safe to click them. If your browser causes unwanted redirects or displays ads, check for unwanted apps (extensions, plug-ins, add-ons) installed and remove them immediately. The same should be applied to programs of this kind that are installed on the computer/operating system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
