27news[.]biz redirect removal instructions

What is 27news[.]biz?

When visited, 27news[.]biz either opens more untrustworthy pages or it loads questionable content. It functions like many other rogue websites, for example, wwserch42[.]biz, android-recaptcha[.]info and find-soulmates[.]com. In most cases people end up on such pages because some potentially unwanted application (PUA) that is installed on a browser or computer opens them. It is worth mentioning that these apps usually are designed to collect details related to user's browsing habits and/or display various ads too.

27news[.]biz pop-up redirects

Most PUAs open websites like 27news[.]biz in a new browser window or tab. When opened, they either redirect visitors to about two or three other shady pages or load some questionable content. Quite often they ask visitors for a permission to show notifications, in most cases they do that by using some clickbait technique. This particular page says that by clicking the "Allow" visitors will prove that they are not robots. If clicked, it allows for 27news[.]biz to show notifications (various ads, links to questionable pages, and so on). As we mentioned in the introduction, quite often people who have PUAs installed on their browsers and/or computers are forced to see various advertisements as well. Apps of this type display various coupons, surveys, banners, pop-ups and ads in other forms. If clicked, those ads usually open various untrustworthy pages. In some cases they are designed to run scripts that cause download and/or installation of unwanted software. Furthermore, more often than not installed PUAs operate as information gathering tools. They collect browsing data like IP addresses, geolocations, addresses of visited pages, entered search queries, and other details of this kind. Sometimes they are designed to record sensitive details too. In one way or another, there is always a possibility that their developers could sell gathered information to third parties (potentially cyber criminals) who would misuse it to generate revenue. It might cause users problems related to privacy, browsing safety, some of them may even become victim of identity theft.

Typically, developers of such apps promote them as tools capable of providing their users with some useful and handy features. However, these are just attempts to trick people into downloading/installing them. Once installed, most of these apps perform only actions that help their developers to generate revenue. Quite often they do not provide their users with the promised functionalities, or any other value.

How did adware install on my computer?

Some potentially unwanted apps can be downloaded from their websites. Nevertheless, most of the times people download and/or install them through clicked intrusive ads or together with some other software. PUAs get downloaded and/or installed together with other software when developers include them in various download and/or installation setup. This distribution method is called "bundling". Typically, information about additionally included apps is hidden in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar parts of setups. As a rule, people allow for PUAs to be downloaded and/or installed through those setups by simply leaving all their settings/options unchanged.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

We recommend not to use questionable websites, Peer-to-Peer networks (like torrent clients, eMule), third party downloaders, installers and other similar channels as tools to download or install programs. It should be downloaded from official websites and through direct download links only. If a download or installation setup contains "Custom", "Advanced" and other settings of this kind, then they should not be left unchecked. Quite often they contain offers to download and/or install various PUAs. Furthermore, it is not recommended to click intrusive ads, especially if such ads are shown on questionable pages. Some of those ads could be capable of running scripts that would download and/or install unwanted apps. However, more often they simply open untrustworthy websites. Either way, it is not safe to click them. If a browser causes unwanted redirects and/or displays ads, then we recommend to check if there are no unwanted apps (extensions, plug-ins or add-ons) installed on it and to uninstall them as soon as possible. The same should be done with 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 Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
