What is the news-lipaze[.]cc site?
News-lipaze[.]cc is an untrustworthy website sharing many similarities with positivestar.org, 761d.site, ositieonthat.space, and thousands of others. It is designed to present visitors with dubious content and/or redirect them to other (likely unreliable or malicious) sites.
Such rogue webpages are typically accessed via redirects caused by suspect websites, intrusive ads, or installed PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications).
News-lipaze[.]cc in detail
Whether visitors to news-lipaze[.]cc are presented with questionable material and/or redirected elsewhere - depends on their IP addresses/ geolocations.
Furthermore, most pages of this type use deceptive content (e.g., clickbait, fake CAPTCHA verification, etc.) to trick visitors into enabling their browser notifications. This applies to news-lipaze[.]cc as well; should its notifications be allowed - the website will start running intrusive advertisement campaigns.
The displayed ads are more than just a nuisance, they also endanger device/user safety. Once clicked on, intrusive adverts redirect to various untrustworthy/malicious sites, and some can stealthily download/install software (e.g., PUAs).

Potentially unwanted application overview
Despite their legitimate appearance, PUAs seldom work as advertised, and they usually have harmful abilities. Unwanted apps can operate by running intrusive ad campaigns, force-opening webpages, hijacking browsers, and gathering private information.
To summarize, the presence of unwanted software on devices can lead to system infections, severe privacy issues, financial losses, and even identity theft.
How did adware install on my computer?
PUAs can be downloaded/installed together with other programs. The marketing technique of packing ordinary software with various additions - is called "bundling". Rushed downloads/installations increase the risk of allowing bundled content into the system.
Intrusive ads are used to proliferate PUAs as well. Upon being clicked, the adverts can execute scripts to make stealthy downloads/installations. Some PUAs also have "official" promotional/download sites.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is advised to research software and download from official/verified sources. Untrustworthy download channels, e.g., unofficial and freeware websites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks, etc. - often offer bundled and harmful content.
When downloading/installing, it is important to read terms, explore available options, use the "Custom/Advanced" settings, and opt-out from all additions. Intrusive advertisements appear legitimate, yet they redirect to highly questionable sites (e.g., gambling, adult-dating, pornography, and so on).
In case of encounters with adverts and/or redirects of this type, the system must be checked and all suspect 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.
