What is enuebenet[.]biz?
Enuebenet[.]biz is pretty similar to news-howaci[.]cc, todhamilton[.]pro, witmayhav[.]fun and hundreds of other websites. As a rule, the purpose of these pages is to promote other websites of this kind or to trick visitors into allowing them to show notifications.
Either way, pages like enuebenet[.]biz cannot be trusted/should not be visited. It is worth mentioning that users do not visit addresses like enuebenet[.]biz intentionally - usually, they get opened through untrustworthy advertisements, shady pages, or by installed potentially unwanted applications (PUAs).
As mentioned in the previous paragraph, enuebenet[.]biz can display deceptive content or open about two, three unreliable pages - it depends on the geolocation of its visitors. It is common for pages like enuebenet[.]biz to use some clickbait technique to trick visitors into allowing them to show notifications.
For instance, they show fake CAPTCHA tests suggesting that visitors need to click the "Allow" button to prove that they are not robots. It is known that enuebenet[.]biz displays a message saying that visitors need to click the "Allow" button to continue loading the page.
Typically, when pages like enuebenet[.]biz are allowed to show notifications, they regularly display notifications containing questionable advertisement or other untrustworthy content. Also, it is common for websites like enuebenet[.]biz to open download pages for adware, browser hijackers, or other PUAs, various scam websites designed to trick visitors into providing sensitive information (e.g., login credentials, credit card details), installing unwanted software, and so on.
A couple examples of pages that enuebenet[.]biz could be used to promote are "Chance To Win The New iPad Pro", "Google Membership Rewards", and " Suspicious Movement Distinguished On You IP". It is common for pages like enuebenet[.]biz to be promoted via potentially unwanted applications.
Apps of this kind often are designed to display advertisements and gather various information as well. They can be monetized by designing them to display coupons, pop-up ads, surveys, banners and other ads designed to open potentially malicious sites or cause unwanted downloads, installations.
Examples of details that PUAs collect are IP addresses, entered search queries, geolocations, addresses of visited websites, or other data related to user's browsing activities. Although, apps of this kind can be capable of accessing information that could be used to steal identities, online accounts, make unauthorized purchases, transactions, etc.
It is important to mention that data gathered by PUAs could be sold to third parties (potentially cybercriminals).

To summarize, websites like enuebenet[.]biz and potentially unwanted applications should not be trusted (visited or installed). It is worth mentioning that PUAs tend to be advertised as legitimate, useful.
Although, most of them are designed to generate revenue for their developers. In other words, they are useless to their users and can cause them various problems (issues related to browsing safety, online privacy, etc.).
They are called PUAs because most of them get downloaded and installed unknowingly. Instructions on how to get rid of unwanted apps are provided below.
How did adware install on my computer?
In most cases, users unintentionally download or install PUAs by clicking ads designed to run certain scripts or when those apps are distributed by using a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". In the second case, users download or install unwanted apps alongside other programs when PUAs are included in downloaders, installers for those programs as extra offers.
As a rule, offers to download or install bundled applications can be declined via "Custom", "Advanced" or other settings/options or by unticking certain checkboxes. Users give bundled apps permission to be downloaded, installed when they finish downloads, installations without changing any of the aforementioned settings/options.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is common for downloaders and installers that have settings like "Advanced", "Custom", "Manual" (or include checkboxes) to include offers to download or install unwanted apps. It is recommended not to finish downloads, installations without declining unwanted offers.
Files and applications should be downloaded from official pages and via direct links. The main reason why other sources like Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), unofficial sites, free file hosting sites, third-party downloaders should, etc., should not be trusted is because they can be used to trick users into downloading or installing potentially malicious files, programs.
Advertisements that questionable websites have on them should not be clicked as well: it is common for those ads to be used to promote untrustworthy websites or distribute (download or install) unwanted apps. Any PUA (plug-in, add-on, or extension) installed on a browser should be removed.
Programs of this kind installed on the operating system should be uninstalled too. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
