Webalta.ru (or home.webalta.ru) is a Russian search website, which is mostly visited without user's consent and knowledge. It has a search engine, offers to create a personalized page and is filled with various links that seem to be the paid ones. Redirections to this domain start when computer gets infected with a sneaky virus called as browser hijacker. As soon as it gets inside, virus modifies the settings of the system and initiates unwanted activity. When infected with Webalta.ru virus, you will start finding this page everywhere. For example, it will start appearing instead of your homepage, default search engine and a new tab page, and will attack every browser installed on the machine. While it may seem that you have entered a search engine, we don't recommend staying on such websites. Besides, as soon as you start suffering from redirections to webalta.ru or similar domains, you should run a full system scan with updated anti-spyware and remove browser hijacker from the system. 


Webalta.ru redirect virus gets inside the target PC unnoticed. In most of the cases, such threats are downloaded together with freeware, shareware or malware. Besides, infected websites and illegal sites can also lead you to the infiltration of the browser hijacker. Once it attacks the PC, this unwanted program starts doing anything in order to get an ability to manipulate its victim. After changing DNS settings, the home page and other settings, it makes you use Webalta.ru instead of your typical browsers, like Google or Yahoo. We must also say that when infected with this browser hijacker, you may find problems with your search results, because they will always be filled with various pop-up ads and commercial notifications that are used to increase the traffic to various sites and earn the money for Webalta.ru owners. So, you should never ignore redirections like this and remove Webalta.ru redirect virus without any delay.
