Neehoose[.]com is quite similar to boustahe[.]com, fewergkit[.]com, leefmylife[.]info, and a great number of other pages designed to load deceptive messages (or other deceptive content), or open a couple of untrustworthy (sometimes legitimate) websites.

Neehoose[.]com in detail

It is likely that neehoose[.]com is promoted via potentially unwanted applications (PUAs), unreliable websites, or shady advertisements. It is known that this website can load a deceptive message encouraging to click the "Allow" button to continue watching a video - it uses a clickbait technique to trick visitors into allowing it to show notifications.

Typically, when a page neehoose[.]com has permission to show notifications, it shows notifications containing dubious advertisements, links to untrustworthy websites, or other questionable content. Therefore, it is highly advisable not to allow websites like neehoose[.]com to show notifications.

Also, neehoose[.]com could open questionable websites (it depends on the visitor's IP address). It is common that sites like neehoose[.]com are used to promote other dubious pages like "Win The New iPhone 12", "Code 0x03A10 (0E10)", download sites for browser hijackers, adware, and so on.

At the time of the research, neehoose[.]com opened a legitimate sports bettings site. It is likely that individuals behind neehoose[.]com get paid a referral fee for newly created accounts on websites opened through neehoose[.]com. Although, pages like neehoose[.]com should not be trusted even if they open legitimate pages.

It is noteworthy that PUAs (apps that often are designed to promote sites like neehoose[.]com) can be designed to collect various information and display unwanted advertisements. Quite often, PUAs gather IP addresses, entered search queries/visited websites, and other browsing-related data.

However, some PUAs may be designed to collect sensitive information. The bigger problem is that data collected by PUAs may be used to steal identities, online accounts. Also, it could be sold to third parties, misused for marketing purposes. Another issue with PUAs is that they can be designed to generate advertisements.

Usually, PUAs feed users with banners, coupons, surveys, pop-up ads, etc. If clicked, those ads could open potentially malicious websites or execute scripts designed to download or even install potentially unwanted applications. Therefore, ads generated by PUAs are not trustworthy and should not be clicked.

Pages like neehoose[.]com in general

In conclusion, users do not visit websites like neehoose[.]com on purpose - these pages get opened via shady ads, websites or PUAs. Once visited, they load some dubious content (e.g., use some clickbait technique to trick visitors into clicking the "Allow" button), or a couple of other questionable pages.

How did adware install on my computer?

It is very common that developers distribute PUAs by including them in downloaders or installers for other programs as optional offers. This distribution method is called "bundling". Users download or install PUAs together with other programs when they leave settings like "Advanced", "Custom" of their setups unchanged.

In other words, when users do not decline offers to download or install additionally included apps. Sometimes, PUAs are distributed via PUAs. Users cause unwanted downloads or installations by clicking deceptive advertisements that are designed to execute certain scripts. Usually, ads of this type appear on shady pages.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Third-party downloaders, installers, Peer-to-Peer networks like torrent clients, eMule, questionable, unofficial pages, etc., should not be used as sources to download or install programs. Quite often, the aforementioned sources are used as tools to distribute various PUAs. Apps (and files) should be downloaded from official websites and via direct links.

Furthermore, downloaders and installers that have "Custom", "Advanced" or other settings (or ticked checkboxes) should be checked for optional offers. Any unwanted offers should be declined before finishing downloads, installations. Otherwise, PUAs will be downloaded or installed alongside programs that have those apps in their downloaders, installers.

Advertisements displayed on untrustworthy pages should not be clicked too. It is common that by clicking those ads open 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.
