What is the news-runytuh[.]cc website?
Sharing similarities with chicheet.com, bro, rtenmy.com, oundoutth.biz, and many others, news-runytuh[.]cc is a rogue webpage. It operates by delivering questionable content and/or redirecting visitors to untrustworthy/malicious sites.
This website type is seldom accessed inadvertently; most users get redirected to these pages by intrusive advertisements or installed PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications). Software within this classification can infiltrate systems without user consent.
PUAs cause redirects, deliver intrusive advert campaigns, and collect browsing-related and sensitive information.
The first thing news-runytuh[.]cc does is check the visitor's IP (Internet Protocol) address to learn their geolocation. This data determines the page's behavior. Hence, whether visitors get redirected elsewhere and/or are presented with dubious material - depends on their IP addresses/ geolocations.
In addition, most rogue webpages use clickbait, fake CAPTCHA verification, and other deceptive content to trick users into enabling their browser notifications. Should the news-runytuh[.]cc site's notifications be allowed, it will start running intrusive advertisement campaigns.
The delivered adverts are more than just a minor annoyance; they pose a threat to device and user safety. Intrusive ads promote various sale-oriented, rogue, untrustworthy, deceptive/scam, and malicious websites.
Some of these advertisements can even be triggered (by being clicked) to execute scripts to download/install software (e.g., PUAs) without user permission. Potentially unwanted applications can have varied heinous abilities, which can be in different combinations.
For example, these apps can force-open sites and/or deliver intrusive ad campaigns. Furthermore, PUAs typically have data tracking functionalities. Targeted information includes: URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries typed, IP addresses/ geolocations, personally identifiable details, and so forth.
PUA developers monetize the gathered data by sharing it with and/or selling it to third-parties. To summarize, the presence of unwanted software on devices - can result in system infections, financial losses, severe privacy issues, and even identity theft.
Therefore, it is highly recommended to remove all suspect applications and browser extensions/plug-ins without delay.

PUAs usually appear legitimate and innocuous. They lure users into download/installation with a broad range of "handy" features. However, despite how good the advertised functions may sound - they are rarely operational.
The sole purpose of unwanted software is to generate revenue for the developers; hence, functionality and user safety are irrelevant. PUAs are designed to cause redirects, run intrusive advert campaigns, and collect private and sensitive information.
How did adware install on my computer?
PUAs are spread through download/installation setups of other products. This false marketing technique of packing regular software with unwanted or malicious additions - is termed "bundling".
Rushed download/installation processes (e.g., skipped steps and sections, used pre-set options, etc.) increase the risk of unintentionally allowing bundled content into the system. Intrusive ads proliferate PUAs as well. Upon being clicked, these adverts can execute scripts to download/install these applications stealthily. Some PUAs have "official" promotional/download sites.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is important to research software prior to download/installation and/or purchase. Additionally, all downloads must be done from official and verified sources.
Untrustworthy download channels, e.g., unofficial and free file-hosting websites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks, and other third-party downloaders - often offer hazardous and/or bundled content. Download and installation processes must be approached with care.
Therefore, it is advised to read terms, study available options, use the "Custom" or "Advanced" settings, and decline downloading/installing supplementary apps, tools, features, etc. Intrusive advertisements appear ordinary and harmless; however, they redirect to unreliable and questionable webpages (e.g., adult-dating, gambling, pornography, and so on).
In case of encounters with such adverts and/or redirects, the system must be checked and all suspicious applications and browser extensions/plug-ins detected - immediately removed from it. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
