basenews7[.]com redirect removal instructions
What is basenews7[.]com?
basenews7[.]com is one of many untrusted websites that loads dubious content or redirects visitors to other bogus web pages. Some examples of other sites that operate in this way include topflownews[.]com, allow-space[.]com and belazyelephant[.]com. Note that most users arrive at basenews7[.]com and others through similar websites and deceptive advertisements, or they are opened by installed potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). Apps of this type often gather browsing data and display ads. They are classified as PUAs, since people tend to download and install them unintentionally.
basenews7[.]com is designed to load dubious content or open about two or three potentially malicious web pages. This depends on the visitor's geolocation. Like most pages of this type, basenews7[.]com deceives visitors into giving it permission to show notifications using a 'clickbait' technique. I.e., it encourages visitors to prove that they are not robots by clicking the "Allow" button, which then grants basenews7[.]com permission to show notifications. Typically, these pages display notifications that contain links to other untrusted sites, decpetive ads, and other dubious content. Therefore, neither basenews7[.]com nor other pages of this kind should be allowed to show notifications. Furthermore, PUAs responsible for opening these pages can also display coupons, surveys, banners, pop-ups and other ads. When clicked, these open various untrusted web pages or even execute scripts designed to download and install unwanted, potentially malicious software. PUAs can usually collect browsing data such as IP addresses, geolocations, addresses of visited pages, entered search queries, and other browsing-related information. Commonly, developers sell the gathered information to third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who attempt to misuse it to generate revenue in other ways. Some PUAs can access and record confidential details. To summarize, installed PUAs can cause problems relating to privacy, browsing safety, and some users might even become victims of identity theft. Therefore, it is important to uninstall all PUAs immediately and avoid downloading or installing them in future.

In most cases, potentially unwanted apps are designed force users to visit dubious web pages, display ads and/or collect various user-system information. PUAs do not deliver any real value or features, and simply cause problems. Therefore, never download or install any PUAs.
How did adware install on my computer?
Most PUAs are installed through clicked deceptive advertisements or when software developers distribute them using the "bundling" method. This method is used to trick people into downloading and installing unwanted apps together with other regular software that they wish to download and intentionally. Developers include PUAs into various download/installation set-ups and hope that people will not decline offers to download and install them. Generally, these offers can be found in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings of the set-ups. People who download and install programs without checking and changing these settings often allow additional PUAs to be downloaded and installed through the set-ups. Unwanted downloads and installations through ads occur only when people click them (they then 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 to download or install software. Commonly, these channels are monetized by promoting unwanted apps. They might also be used to proliferate malware. The safest way to download files and programs is using direct links and official pages. Check all "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar options and decline offers to download or install potentially unwanted apps. Intrusive ads that appear on dubious pages tend to open untrusted, potentially malicious sites. Therefore, do not click them. Remove any unwanted, suspicious or unknown apps (extensions, add-ons, plug-ins) installed on the browser immediately. This should also 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 Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
