Lodder1[.]biz redirect removal instructions
What is lodder1[.]biz?
Lodder1[.]biz is an address of a rogue website which, once visited, opens a couple of other untrustworthy web pages or loads some questionable content. There are many websites like lodder1[.]biz on the Internet, some examples are worldmylife[.]info, balanceformoon[.]com and mediazone[.]mobi. Quite often they get opened by some potentially unwanted application (PUA) that is installed on a browser. Apps of this type usually are designed to gather browsing data and/or display intrusive advertisements as well.
In most cases PUAs make browsers to open pages like lodder1[.]biz in a new browser window or tab. When visited, they either redirect people to two or three shady websites or load questionable content. The way they operate depends on visitor's geolocation. Typically, websites like lodder1[.]biz open pages that contain deceptive advertisements, advertise untrustworthy software, and so on. It is worth mentioning that lodder1[.]biz is designed to trick visitors into allowing it to show notifications by using a clickbait technique. It encourages visitors to prove that they are not robots by clicking the "Allow" button which, if clicked, allows for lodder1[.]biz to show notifications. Typically, pages like this one display notifications that contain links to untrustworthy pages, deceptive advertisements, and so forth. Furthermore, most PUAs not only force their users to visit rogue websites but also collect information related to their browsing activity and/or serve advertisements. Typically, apps of this type gather browsing data such as IP addresses, websites of visited pages, entered search queries, geolocations, and so on. There is always a possibility that installed PUA may be designed to collect sensitive information as well. Their developers often sell recorded information to third parties (potentially cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue. Also, PUAs often are designed to feed users with coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups and other forms of advertisements. When clicked, those ads usually lead to untrustworthy websites. In some cases they run scripts designed to download or even install some unwanted, potentially malicious applications. To sum up, PUAs can be the reason behind identity theft, problems related to browsing safety, privacy, and so on. Therefore, any installed PUA should be uninstalled immediately.

There are many PUAs that are advertised as legitimate, useful and supposed to provide users with some features. Nevertheless, only a small part of them operate as they were advertised. More often than not they do not deliver any value, are designed only to generate revenue for their developers and put users at risk of various problems.
How did adware install on my computer?
People usually cause downloads and/or installations of PUAs by clicking deceptive ads that are designed to run certain scripts and when they are included in download and/or installation setups of other, mainly free programs. It is very common for PUAs to be included in setups of other programs and presented as additional offers. This distribution method of potentially unwanted software is called "bundling". It is being used to trick people into downloading and/or installing PUAs together with programs that they actually want to download and/or install. In most cases information about included apps is provided in "Advanced", "Custom" and other similar parts of setups. Nevertheless, people often leave those settings unchanged, by doing so they give a permission for PUAs to be downloaded and/or installed through setups of programs that are used to distribute them.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
All programs (and files) should be downloaded only from official pages and through direct links. Third party downloaders (installers), Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), unofficial websites, etc., should not be used as tools to download and install any software. Also, it is important to see if settings of download and installation setups (like "Advanced", "Custom") contain offers to download and/or install additional, unwanted apps. Those offers should be declined on time (before completing downloads and installations). Furthermore, it is not safe to click advertisements that are displayed on questionable websites because they often open untrustworthy pages or cause downloads and/or installations of unwanted applications. It is worth mentioning that sometimes such ads can be displayed on legitimate paged as well. If there are any suspicious, unwanted plug-ins, add-ons and extensions already installed on a browser, then they should be removed immediately. The same should be applied to programs of this kind that are installed on the operating system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
