Basenews7[.]com redirect removal instructions
What is basenews7[.]com?
Basenews7[.]com is one of the many untrustworthy websites that are designed to load questionable content or redirect visitors to other shady pages. Here are examples of other pages that operate this way: topflownews[.]com, allow-space[.]com and belazyelephant[.]com. It is worthwhile to mention that most users end up on sites like basenews7[.]com through other pages of this kind, deceptive advertisements, or they get opened by installed potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). Apps of this type often are designed to gather browsing data and/or display ads too. They are called PUAs because users tend to download, install them unintentionally.
Basenews7[.]com is designed either to load shady content or open about two or three potentially malicious pages. It depends on its visitor's geolocation. Like most pages of this type, basenews7[.]com is designed to deceive visitors into giving it a permission to show notification by using a clickbait technique for that. To be more precise, it encourages visitors to prove that they are not robots by clicking the "Allow" button which would grant basenews7[.]com a permission to show its notification. Typically, such pages display notifications that contain links to untrustworthy pages, shady ads, and other questionable content. If clicked, it gives place-web[.]com a permission to show its notifications. Typically, such pages display notifications that contain deceptive advertisements, promote various untrustworthy pages, and other untrustworthy content. Therefore, neither basenews7[.]com or any other page of this kind should be allowed to show them. Furthermore, PUAs that often are responsible for opening such pages can be designed to display various coupons, surveys, banners, pop-ups and ads. When clicked, those ads open various untrustworthy pages or even execute scripts designed to cause download, installation of unwanted, potentially malicious software. Also, PUAs can be designed to collect browsing data like IP addresses, geolocations, addresses of visited pages, entered search queries, and other browsing-related information. It is common that their sell gathered information to third parties (potentially cyber criminals) who attempt to misuse it to generate revenue in other ways. There is always a possibility that installed PUA could be capable of accessing confidential details as well. To summarize, installed PUAs can cause problems related to privacy, browsing safety, some of their users may even become victims of identity theft. These are the main reasons why it is important to uninstall any installed PUAs as soon as possible and avoid downloading, installing such apps in the future.

In most cases potentially unwanted apps are designed force users to visit shady pages, display ads and/or collect various information. In other oprds, most PUAs do not deliver any value (features) and can cause various problems. Therefore, apps of this type should not be downloaded and installed.
How did adware install on my computer?
Most PUAs get installed either through clicked deceptive advertisements or when software developers distribute them by using a "bundling" method. This method is being used to trick users into downloading and/or installing unwanted apps alongside with other software that they download and/or intentionally. Developers include apps in various download and/or installation setups and hope that users will not decline offers to download and/or install them. As a rule those offers can be found in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings of setups. Users who download and install programs without checking and changing those settings often allow for included PUAs to be downloaded and/or installed through their setups as well. Downloads, installations through ads happen only when users click them and they are designed to run certain scripts.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Torrent clients, eMule and other Peer-to-Peer networks, third party downloaders, installers, unofficial websites, and other similar channels should not be used as tools to download or install any software. It is common that such channels are monetized by using them as tools to promote unwanted apps. It is possible that they could be used to proliferate malware as well. The safest way to download files and programs is by using direct links and official pages. Furthermore, download, installation setups that contain "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar options should be checked for offers to download and/or install potentially unwanted apps. Intrusive ads that appear on various questionable pages tend to open untrustworthy, potentially malicious sites. For these reason ads of this type should not be clicked. If there are any unwanted, suspicious or unknown apps (extensions, add-ons or plug-ins) installed on browser, then they should be uninstalled right away. This should be applied to programs of this kind that are installed on the operating system too. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
