How to stop redirects to and from urgent-incoming.email

Also Known As: urgent-incoming.email pop-up
Damage level: Medium

What is the urgent-incoming[.]email site?

Sharing many similarities with withoughzp.clubxrclicks.xyzlastmedias.biz and thousands of others, urgent-incoming[.]email is a rogue website. Visitors to this page are presented with dubious material and/or are redirected to other untrusted or malicious sites.

Few users access urgent-incoming[.]email intentionally - most are redirected to them by intrusive ads or by Potentially Unwanted Applications (PUAs). These apps do not need express user permission to be installed onto systems. Following successful infiltration, PUAs can cause redirects, run intrusive advertisement campaigns and collect browsing-related information.

urgent-incoming[.]email pop-up redirects

The behavior of urgent-incoming[.]email is determined by visitors' geolocations. The site learns this information by checking their IP (Internet Protocol) addresses. To elaborate how this works, whether visitors are redirected elsewhere and/or are presented with dubious content depends on their geolocations.

Furthermore, urgent-incoming[.]email employs deceptive tactics to encourage users into enabling its browser notifications. It claims that "This window can be closed by clicking 'Allow'. If you want to continue actions on this site, just click the detailed information".

Should notifications be allowed, the web page begins running intrusive ad campaigns. The delivered ads are most than just a nuisance, they also pose a threat to device and user safety. Once clicked, intrusive ads redirect to various sale-based/promotional, untrusted, compromised, deceptive/scam and malicious sites.

Some can even stealthily download/install rogue software (e.g. PUAs). These unwanted applications can have varied capabilities, often in different combinations. PUAs can force-open dangerous websites and run intrusive advertisement campaigns.

Furthermore, most PUAs can track data. They can record browsing activity (URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries typed, etc.) and collect personal information extracted from it (IP addresses, geolocations and other details). This vulnerable information is then monetized by sharing with and/or selling to third parties (potentially, cyber criminals).

In summary, the presence of this unwanted software on devices can lead to system infections, financial loss, serious privacy issues and even identity theft. To protect device integrity and user privacy, all suspect applications and browser extensions/plug-ins must be removed without delay.

PUAs may seem legitimate and harmless, and users are often enticed into download/installation with offers of "useful" functionality. Despite how good the advertised features may sound, they are rarely operational.

The only purpose of this unwanted software is to generate revenue for the developers. PUAs cause redirects, run intrusive ad campaigns and gather private data.

How did adware install on my computer?

PUAs are commonly distributed by integrating them into the download and/or installation set-ups of other programs, so that a proportion of users inadvertently download and install them together with their chosen software. This distribution method is known as "bundling".

Offers to download and install additionally-included apps usually appear in "Advanced", "Custom" and other settings of the set-ups (where they can usually be declined). Many users fail to check and change these settings, thereby granting permission for PUAs to be downloaded and installed by default.

In addition, unwanted downloads and installations are sometimes caused by clicking deceptive advertisements capable of executing certain scripts..

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

You are advised to research all software prior to download/installation and/or purchase. Use only official and verified download channels, since untrusted sources including unofficial and free file-hosting websites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks and other third party downloaders can offer bundled content.

Download and installation processes must be approached with caution. Read the terms, explore all available options, use the "Custom" or "Advanced" settings and opt-out of supplementary apps, tools, features, and so on. Intrusive ads may seem legitimate, however, they can redirect to dubious sites (e.g. gambling, adult-dating, pornography, etc.).

If you encounter these advertisements or redirects, check the system and remove all suspicious applications and browser extensions/plug-ins immediately. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.

How to avoid browser notification spam?

Internet users should be very skeptical when being asked to allow notifications. While this is a useful feature that allows you to receive timely news from websites you like, deceptive marketers frequently abuse it.

Only allow notifications from websites that you fully trust. For added security - use an anti-malware application with a real-time web browsing monitor to block shady websites that tries to trick you into allowing spam notifications. We recommend using Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows.
