What is ncurrentlyd[.]biz?
Ncurrentlyd[.]biz is an untrustworthy page designed to promote other untrustworthy, potentially malicious websites and load deceptive content (its functionality depends on the geolocation of a visitor). It is important to mention that pages like ncurrentlyd[.]biz are rarely visited intentionally. In most cases, they get opened via deceptive ads, other dubious pages, or by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) installed on browsers or computers. There are many pages like ncurrentlyd[.]biz on the Internet. Some examples are oossautsid[.]com, acancyfopl[.]biz, and suadeh[.]club.
Typically, websites of this type are designed to trick visitors into agreeing to receive their notifications. Most of them use a clickbait technique for that. For example, they can display a fake CAPTCHA test claiming that visitors need to click the "Allow" button to prove that they are not robots. Ncurrentlyd[.]biz displays a deceptive message suggesting that the page will be loaded after clicking the aforementioned button. In most cases, notifications from pages like ncurrentlyd[.]biz are used to promote unreliable websites, questionable software, and so on. For this reason, websites of this kind should not be allowed to show notifications. Another problem with ncurrentlyd[.]biz is that it is designed to promote deceptive, potentially malicious websites. It may open pages used to trick visitors into providing sensitive information, downloading and installing unwanted software (e.g., browser hijackers, adware), paying money for unnecessary software, and so on. For example, pages like "Important Defender Update Available", "Chance To Win The Brand New Playstation 5", "Google Membership Rewards". It is worth mentioning that pages like ncurrentlyd[.]biz often are promoted through various potentially unwanted applications (PUAs).
Potentially unwanted applications can be (and often are) designed to gather various data. It is common that apps of this kind target information related to browsing habits, for example, IP addresses, entered search queries, URLs of visited websites, geolocations. However, there are many PUAs designed to gather sensitive, personal information such as credit card details, passwords. All gathered information may be sold to third parties (potentially cybercriminals), used for marketing purposes, steal accounts, etc. Additionally, apps of his kind can display coupons, surveys, banners, pop-ups, and other advertisements. Quote often, ads coming from PUAs are used to promote untrustworthy web pages. In some cases, they can be used to distribute unwanted software by designing them to execute certain scripts.

To sum up, browsers that open pages like newlistiong[.]com are likely to have some PUA installed on them (or an app of this kind is installed on the operating system). Typically, apps of this are useless to their users. Most of them are designed to promote untrustworthy websites, collect various data and generate advertisements. In other words, their main purpose is to generate revenue for their developers. In one way or another, it is strongly recommended not to trust apps that are distributed using questionable, deceptive methods.
How did adware install on my computer?
It is quite popular for potentially unwanted applications to be included in downloaders or installers for other programs as additional offers. This distribution method is known as "bundling". Typically, users can find unwanted offers in "Advanced", "Custom", "Manual" or other settings, or near ticked checkboxes and use them to decline those offers. Users agree to download or install bundled applications when they do not make any changes that would prevent unwanted downloads or installations from occurring. Sometimes, users cause undesired downloads or installations by clicking deceptive advertisements that are designed to execute certain scripts.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is recommended to examine downloaders and installers that have "Custom", "Advanced" or other settings, or ticked checkboxes. Quite often, those downloaders, installers include offers to download or install potentially unwanted applications. Also, it is advisable to download programs (and files) from official websites and through direct links. Unofficial pages, third-party downloaders (and installers), Peer-to-Peer networks (like torrent clients, eMule), etc., can be used as channels to distribute unwanted, potentially malicious apps. Additionally, it is recommended not to click advertisements that questionable sites have on them. It is common that those ads are used to promote untrustworthy websites or distribute unwanted applications. Unwanted, unknown or suspicious extensions, add-ons, or plug-ins installed on a web browser and programs of this kind installed on the operating system should be uninstalled If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
