Browser redirects and pop-ups are usually the result of potentially unwanted programs (PUP) infection on internet programs. Unexpected browser redirection to unfamiliar and questionable sites are persistent once browser program is compromised. PUP or adware can trigger malicious websites to open on browser as a way to force web users to visit predefined websites.
Cturemini.pro is one example of browser redirect. It attempts to deceive web visitors into agreeing to receive alerts from their site. Cturemini.pro will begin to show push notifications requesting to send alerts. By clicking the “allow” button, web users agree to enable browser notifications. After that, many advertisements in a form of pop-up ads, promotional banners, or surveys will bombard the browser. Those ads will keep appearing on the computer screen without the control of online users. Another thing is, the browser can connect to other dubious websites such as gambling platforms, unofficial download sites, or phishing sites. Moreover, Cturemini.pro presents web visitors with click-baits. Further access to Cturemini.pro could lead to intrusions of malware on the computer. Some ads or buttons can automatically install an unwanted program once clicked. Therefore, beware on any clickable buttons when Cturemini.pro web page opens.
Clicking pop-ups triggered by unwanted software can accidentally open Cturemini.pro web page. Sudden redirection to Cturemini.pro can be risky especially when web users allow alerts from this site. The threat will start when Cturemini.pro sends notifications to the browser. Constant ads and pop-ups will interrupt the online activity of web users. Cturemini.pro aims to generate revenue through pay-per-click so they exhibit numerous advertisements in forms of paid links, pop-ups, and banners. In addition, another way that opens up Cturemini.pro on browser is if web user pays a visit to compromised websites. Such websites can run the ads or pop-ups of Cturemini.pro that intends to land web user to partner’s web sites.
Clicking on any ads and pop-ups produced by Cturemini.pro is the basis for additional adware or malware infection. Therefore, it is suggested to immediately scan the computer with legitimate malware and virus removal tools once Cturemini.pro pop-ups on the browser program.
