What is sabishare[.]com?
Sabishare[.]com is a file storage and sharing website. While such services are legitimate, this site uses rogue advertising networks that promote various untrustworthy and harmful webpages.
Websites that use rogue advertising networks endorse sites by force-opening or causing redirects to them - when content (e.g., buttons, links, ads, etc.) is clicked. Networks of this type push sale-based (of either legitimate or fraudulent products), untrustworthy, compromised, deceptive/scam, and even malicious pages.
What is more, sites like sabishare[.]com often host intrusive adverts or attempt to trick users into allowing their browser notifications (which, if enabled, deliver various ads). The advertisements/notifications promote likewise unreliable and dangerous websites. Some intrusive adverts can download/install software stealthily - once clicked on.

Potentially unwanted application overview
Rogue and other untrustworthy webpages are usually accessed via mistyped URLs or redirects caused by suspect sites, intrusive advertisements, or installed PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications). This software can infiltrate devices without explicit user permission.
Unwanted apps appear legitimate and promise "handy" abilities, which seldom work. Instead, they tend to have harmful functionalities, e.g., force-opening websites, running intrusive ad campaigns (adware), modifying browsers (browser hijackers), and gathering sensitive data.
To summarize, the presence of PUAs on devices can result in cause system infections, severe privacy issues, financial losses, and even identity theft.
How did potentially unwanted applications install on my computer?
PUAs are spread using the "bundling" technique - packing regular programs with various additions. By rushing through download/installation processes - users risk allowing bundled content into their devices. Some PUAs also have "official" promotional/download pages. Intrusive adverts are used to distribute PUAs as well. Upon being clicked, the advertisements can execute scripts to download/install software without user permission.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is important to research software and download it from official/verified sources. Untrustworthy download channels, e.g., unofficial and freeware websites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks, etc. - often offer bundled content.
Download/Installation processes must be approached with care; that entails - reading terms, exploring possible options, and using the "Custom/Advanced" settings to opt-out from all additions. Intrusive adverts appear legitimate; however, they redirect to questionable sites (e.g., gambling, pornography, adult-dating, etc.).
Should users encounter ads and/or redirects of this kind, they must inspect their devices and immediately remove all dubious applications and browser extensions/plug-ins detected. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
