What is the news-hoyisa[.]cc website?
News-hoyisa[.]cc is a rogue webpage that loads dubious content and/or redirects visitors to various (likely unreliable or malicious) sites.
The Internet is rife with such websites; financesurvey24.top, emoxan.xyz, and breaking-news.me - are just some examples. Rogue pages are typically accessed via redirects caused by untrustworthy sites, intrusive ads, or PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications) already infiltrated into the system.
News-hoyisa[.]cc in detail
Whether visitors to news-hoyisa[.]cc are presented with questionable material and/or redirected elsewhere - depends on their IP addresses/ geolocations. Additionally, rogue webpages usually use deceptive content (e.g., fake CAPTCHA verification, clickbait, etc.) to lure visitors into enabling their browser notifications.
News-hoyisa[.]cc is not an exception; should its notifications be allowed - the website will start running intrusive advert campaigns. The delivered ads are more than a nuisance, as they also endanger device and user safety. When clicked on, the advertisements redirect to various unreliable/malicious sites, and some can download/install software (e.g., PUAs) without user permission.

Potentially unwanted application overview
PUAs appear harmless and promise "handy" functionalities, which are rarely functional. This software operates by force-opening suspect pages, delivering intrusive advertisement campaigns, hijacking browsers, and gathering vulnerable information.
To summarize, the presence of PUAs on devices can lead to system infections, severe privacy issues, financial losses, and identity theft.
How did adware install on my computer?
PUAs can be downloaded/installed alongside other programs. "Bundling" is the term defining this marketing tactic of packing ordinary software with various additions. Rushed downloads/installations increase the risk of allowing bundled content into the device.
Intrusive adverts proliferate PUAs as well. Once clicked on, the advertisements can stealthily download/install these applications. PUAs may also have "official" promotional/download sites.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is recommended to research software and only download from official/verified sources. Untrustworthy download channels, e.g., unofficial and freeware websites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks, etc. - often offer bundled and hazardous content.
When downloading/installing, it is advised to read terms, explore available options, use the "Custom/Advanced" settings, and opt-out from all supplements. Intrusive ads appear legitimate, yet they redirect to questionable sites (e.g., gambling, pornography, adult-dating, etc.).
In case of encounters with advertisements and/or redirects of this kind, 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.
