In other cases, news-rewuje[.]cc can open about two or three untrustworthy websites designed to trick visitors into downloading, installing some browser hijacker, adware-type app, providing personal information like login credentials, credit card details, or other shady pages.

It is important to mention that users rarely open sites like news-rewuje[.]cc intentionally. In most cases, these pages get opened through deceptive advertisements, questionable websites, or installed potentially unwanted applications (PUAs).
More about potentially unwanted applications
It is worth mentioning that PUAs can be designed to gather browsing data like entered search queries, IP addresses, geolocations, URLs of visited sites and other information, or even sensitive data like passwords, credit card details. What is worse, the collected information could be used for marketing purposes, sold to third parties (potentially cybercriminals), used to steal accounts, identities, etc.
Also, PUAs can be designed to generate banners, coupons, surveys, pop-up ads, or other ads used to promote shady websites or distribute unwanted applications. It is highly advisable not to click ads that any PUAs generate.

To sum up, it is common for websites like news-rewuje[.]cc to be promoted through potentially unwanted applications. Apps of this kind are called PUAs because users rarely download and install them on purpose. A couple of methods used to trick users into installing apps of this kind are described below.
It is worth mentioning that most PUAs are designed to gather various data, serve advertisements and (or) promote sites like news-rewuje[.]cc. In other words, most of them are useless and can be the reason behind various issues.
How did adware install on my computer?
Quite often, potentially unwanted applications are distributed by including them in downloaders or installers for other programs. This distribution method is known as "bundling". It is used to trick users into downloading or installing PUAs alongside other programs that they download or install intentionally.
This method works when users finish downloads, installations without changing "Custom", "Advanced" or other settings/options, or unticking checkboxes that can be used to decline unwanted offers.
In some cases, potentially unwanted applications are distributed through deceptive advertisements. More precisely, by designing advertisements to run certain scripts. Those ads cause unwanted downloads, installations when users click them. As a rule, ads of this type do not appear on legitimate pages.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Third-party downloaders, installers, Peer-to-Peer networks like torrent clients, eMule, unofficial web pages, and other similar sources should not be used to download or install any files or programs. Files downloaded from or through them could be designed to install unwanted, malicious software. Therefore, it is recommended to use official websites and direct links to download files or programs.
Furthermore, downloaders and installers that have "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings often contain offers to download or install unwanted apps. Those offers should be declined before finishing downloads or installations. It is worth mentioning that most PUAs are bundled with free programs.
Intrusive advertisements that are displayed on untrustworthy pages should not be clicked. It is common that they open other untrustworthy, potentially malicious pages or cause unwanted downloads, installations. All suspicious, unwanted, or unknown extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons that are installed on a browser should be removed. Programs of this kind that are 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.
