Deceiving domain - rednews7.com

Type: Adware

Rednews7.com is a rogue website that operates as other adware-based cyber intruders because the main focus of the page is redirects and pop-up delivery that ensures views and page visits that can be monetized later on. Typical unwanted applications get installed without users' knowledge and run in the background, causing those additional notifications and browser-related problems.

Additional features that deceptive ad-supported sites like Rednews7.com have :

  • installation of other programs or extensions;
  • alterations in various directories and registry;
  • data tracking and collecting.

Rednews7.com can access browsing-related details, location information, browsing history, most viewed, and visited pages. All that information is valuable for the commercial content publisher that can target people with more personalized ads, which is the goal of such adware-type intruders.
