removal by Linas Kiguolis - - | Type: Adware

Easymedia2.com is a malicious website that abuses legitimate browser feature to insert intrusive ads into users' web browsers

Easymedia2.comEasymedia2.com is a deceptive website that uses social engineering in order to make users subscribe for its notifications

Easymedia2.com is a push notification virus that gets injected via the notification feature available on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, MS Edge, and other web browsers. Upon entering the website, users are shown a pop-up message that asks whether they want to allow notifications to be displayed, all while they see a carefully compiled scam message in the background that actively prompts users to the press “Allow.”

If they subscribe to Easymedia2.com notifications, they will start receiving intrusive pop-up ads directly on their desktops. Unfortunately, these advertisements are far from being safe, as users will be constantly exposed to scam messages, click-bait, get-rich-quick, and similar links. While those who refrain from clicking on the pop-ups will be safe, getting rid of these annoying pop-ups proved to be difficult for many users, as they are unaware that they can remove Easymedia2.com via the web browser settings.

Name  Easymedia2.com
Type Push notification virus, adware 
Infiltration  Redirects to malicious websites are often caused by adware – potentially unwanted program that is typically installed along with freeware obtained from third-party sites; nevertheless, desktop notifications from Easymedia2.com are allowed via the browser push notification feature
Risks  Installation of potentially unwanted software or malware, information disclosure, or monetary loss due to frequently encountered online scams, etc.
Symptoms  Those who press “Allow” upon entering the site will receive pop-ups directly on their desktop on a regular basis – these links will direct users to scam, phishing, and similar unsafe sites; Nevertheless, adware might also be present on the computer if redirects to suspicious websites and intrusive ads are commonly encountered during web browsing sessions
Termination  To get rid of the Easymedia2.com spam notifications, you should access web browser settings and terminate the website from the “allowed” list; the root cause of pop-ups and other types of advertisements might be adware – in such case, scan your machine with anti-malware or follow manual removal instructions we provide
Recovery & optimization In case your computer is lagging, hanging, showing error messages, and having other issues after you get rid of adware or malware, scan it with a repair tool Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego

The motivation of Easymedia2.com authors is simple – to make users click on links that are mostly unsafe and earn ad revenue in the process. There have been thousands of such sites created regularly – good examples include Twok.proCloud1.pwZahkit.pro, and many others. It is also important to note that these websites are often shut down due to scam activities, but thousands more are created under different names.

As evident, there are not many who would agree to receive intrusive offers and scam messages being delivered directly to their screens while using the computer or phone. Thus, crooks came up with an elaborate scheme – abusing a legitimate, built-in push notification feature to push malicious links. For that, social engineering tricks are used in order to make users click on the “Allow” button. Here's one of the examples that Easymedia2.com virus may use to persuade visitors:

Click Allow if you are not a robot

As evident, this statement is very familiar, as users are often asked to click on a tick box or prove otherwise that they are not bots – this is a legitimate tactic to prevent malicious scripts from flooding the website. Because it is so familiar, users might believe that Easymedia2.com prompt is reasonable, and press “Allow.”

Other social engineering techniques that malicious actors behind Easymedia2.com virus use include showing a fake YouTube video that is allegedly is about to be played, or asking users to press allow if they are 18+, which immediately implies that content of sexual nature would be displayed. However, Easymedia2.com will not disclose anything beyond what is already shown on the site, as it is simply not designed to do so – the goal is to make a visitor click on the “Allow” button.

Easymedia2.com adsEasymedia2.com is a push notification virus that delivers malicious ads directly into users' desktops

Unfortunately, the reason why you might have been redirected to the Easymedia2.com site is due to adware that might be hiding inside your Windows or macOS computer, as well as iPhone or Android device (note that notifications can be enabled on all type of devices as well, including phones). These potentially unwanted programs are designed to display users' advertisements and redirect to affiliated websites.

The trick is that adware developers often pick untrustworthy ad networks that might direct users to malicious sites, such as Easymedia2.com. Other adware infection symptoms include:

  • Startup page, new tab URL and the search engine of the web browser is set to a different address;
  • Intrusive advertisements show up on all visited websites;
  • All searchers are directed to another provider (sometimes it might be legitimate, such as Yahoo or Google);
  • Search results are filled with sponsored links;
  • Browser extensions or applications installed without permission.

Additionally, adware is often set to gather browsing-related information about users with the help of web beacons, Flash cookies,[1] and other tracking technologies. The data collected helps monetization, as it allows expose users to targeted ads.[2]

In the case of the adware infection, Easymedia2.com removal from web browsers will not be enough, as you will have find and eliminated the potentially unwanted application from your device. To do that, you can rely on the manual removal guide provided below or scan your machine with anti-malware. Additionally, experts[3] recommend resetting all the installed browsers and using Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego to repair system damage after a virus infection.

Watch out for social engineering tricks and avoid adware by paying close attention to the installation process of free apps

Push notification spam is a simple technique that utilizes an otherwise-useful browser feature and social engineering in order to deliver users advertisements. Because of the push notification feature abuse, Mozilla Firefox already announced that it would not display the prompt upon a website entry, and Google is about to follow this great example.[4] This will reduce the chance of users subscribing to websites that are malicious.

If you are not using Mozilla Firefox, however, you should learn to recognize deception online. In case of push notification scam, you should only press “Allow” on websites that you trust, and not those that you accidental got redirected to. In any case, all the promises of displaying the underlying content are fake – there is nothing to be seen.

Easymedia2.com social engineeringEasymedia2.com uses social engineering and familiar features like "Confirm you are not a robot" in order to make users subscribe to unwanted advertisements

Another way to protect yourself from unwanted ads is making sure that you dot install adware or other potentially unwanted programs on your machine – they are typically installed behind users' back with the help of software bundle packages distributed via third-party freeware sites. Typically, distributors employ various tricks for users not to notice optional components inside the installer, which results in users not spotting adware's point of entry.

To avoid PUPs, you should pay a great deal of attention when installing freeware apps (generally, you should stick to official sources like Google Play, Apple Store, Amazon, etc., when possible) – always check for pre-ticked boxes, fine print text, deceptive button placements, misleading offers, and, most importantly, always opt for Advanced/Custom settings.

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.
