Abdurantom.comAbdurantom.com is a malicious website that users are redirected to when they are infected with adware

Abdurantom.com is a suspicious web address that users might encounter at any time while browsing the web. While seeing less than reputable websites is not uncommon after accidentally clicking on a link somewhere on the internet, some users reported that redirects to this particular site happen repeatedly.

If you are one of those people who suffers from Abdurantom.com redirects, you should know that such behavior is not normal – it is caused by a type of a potentially unwanted program known as adware. These apps typically travel within software bundles, fake update prompts, and other deceptive methods. PUPs are also often used to spy on users' web browsing activates via Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, MS Edge, or another web browser.

Those infected with the so-called Abdurantom.com virus might see an increased amount of pop-ups, deals, offers, coupons, banners, and other types of ads all over the internet. Besides, search results might be redirected to another provider, for example, Yahoo.

Adware is generally not considered as high of a threat as, for example, ransomware, but it should not be disregarded. There are several components to potentially unwanted programs (and especially ad-supported software) that might compromise user security in many ways.

Abdurantom.com is just a part of a complicated chain on the web, although it all comes down to monetization. There are plenty of people who are willing to use quite unfair practices in order to make money. For example, while software bundling is considered an adequate and harmless software distribution technique, some developers purposely hide optional components to make users install apps they did not want to.

You should remove Abdurantom.com from your web browsers as soon as possible, as even security applications detect the site as follows:[1]

  • Malware
  • Phishing
  • Malicious

According to Hybrid Analysis data,[2] Abdurantom.com has several indicators that are considered suspicious, including script or binary execution. This technically means that the site can launch scripts as soon as it is entered. While it might not be malicious, it also could be – it all depends on what the site authors programmed it to be. In case your browser is vulnerable, you might be infected with malware without any interaction on your part.

As evident, you might encounter Abdurantom.com redirects accidentally – you might have clicked on a link, or you got redirected from another site. Nonetheless, it is important not to click on anything after you end up on a landing page – scammers might extort your login credentials by imitating a legitimate site or make you download useless programs you have to pay for.

In any case, it is always advisable by experts[3] to perform a full system check for Abdurantom.com removal. For that, you can check for potentially unwanted programs manually (we provide the instructions below) and then scan the device with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes, or another anti-malware software. Finally, if you experience any post-infection symptoms, such as lag, crashes, or other stability issues, you can use FortectIntego to fix them automatically.

Software bundling – one of the main adware distribution methods

Many users get surprised when they notice that their browser begins to behave erratically seemingly out of nowhere – their homepage address changes, they see redirects to suspicious websites, and search results are suddenly filled in with ads. While some might not recognize the infection symptoms, for many, this is a clear sign that something is not right.

In any case, adware and other potentially unwanted programs usually get installed along with freeware from third-party sources, hence infiltration is often undetected by users. While many believe that adware simply installs itself, it is not true, as users themselves allow it in (although it is not intentional). Therefore, it is important not to rush the installation process of newly-acquired programs, decline all the offers, remove ticks from checkboxes and always opt for Advanced/Custom settings to be in control of the process from start to finish.

Also, adware might be actively spread via fake notifications and updates on malicious websites. Flash Player is especially abused by cybercriminals – it delivers many computer nasties, including adware, Trojans, ransomware, other malware. Thus, never trust prompts that tell you that something is missing, needs to be updated, or that your computer is infected with viruses. These are mere tricks in order to make you download malicious software.

How to prevent from getting adware

Do not let government spy on you

The government has many issues in regards to tracking users' data and spying on citizens, so you should take this into consideration and learn more about shady information gathering practices. Avoid any unwanted government tracking or spying by going totally anonymous on the internet. 

You can choose a different location when you go online and access any material you want without particular content restrictions. You can easily enjoy internet connection without any risks of being hacked by using Private Internet Access VPN.

Control the information that can be accessed by government any other unwanted party and surf online without being spied on. Even if you are not involved in illegal activities or trust your selection of services, platforms, be suspicious for your own security and take precautionary measures by using the VPN service.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer from data losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Ransomware can encrypt and hold files hostage, while unforeseen power cuts might cause a loss of important documents. If you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work. It is also equally important to update backups on a regular basis so that the newest information remains intact – you can set this process to be performed automatically.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware strikes out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the data restoration process.
