What is Only-news.org. Removal reasons and methods

Only-news.org is an advertising program that is being spread through the Internet. The distribution method is called “bundled installation” and it is used by 95% of Internet-scammers, so if you will know how to avoid it – you will avoid almost all types of adware and browser hijackers. The method is fairly simple: scammers make users want to download and install their adware. They create a “bundle” from few programs. One of them is nice and useful (it might be a free program, or a pirated copy of paid software) and all others are viruses or adware. Then they put the bundle on free file sharing services and give it the name of the only useful tool in it. User thinks that he’s downloading the useful software, but in fact he will get few additional viruses. After the download, when user begins the installation, he sees lots of windows with license agreement and other information about the program. Less than 1% of users read this information, because they think that it’s not important. Scammers know this, and fully describe their adware, to make user agree with all its functions. After that there is a choice between two methods of installation: recommended installation and installation for experienced users. The first variant means that user will download the whole bundle without even knowing what’s in there. The second variant means that user will choose which programs to install and which to decline. So, if you will see suchlike windows – read their content and choose carefully what to click.

 

 

After the penetration Only-news.org begins to act like all adware usually does: changing browser settings, showing ads and generating the pop-up windows everywhere. These things are very annoying, and they might seem pointless to you, if you don’t know how exactly web-scammers earn their money. The point is that adware is an extremely profitable business. It allows hackers to earn millions per day, but, of course suchlike schemes include millions of user’s computers and large staff of hackers. Only-news.org might be a part of suchlike scheme, and might be not, but we definitely know that it had infected tens of thousands of computers last week, and isn’t going to stop. The only way to get rid of Only-news.org’s advertising is to remove this program from your PC once and for all.
