Remove Ucoz.org Pop-up Ads

Ucoz.org is a malware internet domain that is linked to the aggressive browser redirection operation currently affecting a number of Internet browser programs. Its purpose is to provide unusual advertisements on the browser, including the majority of pages that are not related to the web user’s preference. There are two ways in which Ucoz.org appears on the computer and both are sure to cause problems in the browser.

Ucoz.org pop-up notifications

This first visit to the website requires the user’s permission to allow Ucoz.org to send notifications to the default browser program. In fact, most websites share this invitation. However, the rationale for Ucoz.org publishers is indeed questionable. Legitimate sites use the push notification function to send website updates and news, while Ucoz.org can exploit it to flood the browser with pop-up advertisements. Unfortunately, most Ucoz.org ads are incentives to download malware, visit suspicious websites or complete fraudulent surveys.
