Do you know what Russianews1.ru is?
Russianews1.ru is a Russian website which has been developed to generate traffic to certain domains. Users usually do not see Russianews1.ru in the address bar of their browsers, or they see it only for a second because it immediately redirects to other pages with commercial advertisements. These redirections can indicate two things: a) an untrustworthy extension has been added to your browser or b) a malicious application has successfully entered your computer and created a Scheduled Task to open your browser with Russianews1.ru periodically. Theoretically, you could have been redirected to this Russian domain after entering some kind of untrustworthy web page too, but it is not very common. Since there are several possible reasons why Russianews1.ru is opened for you, it will not be easy to find out the real reason why you see it and then stop these irritating redirections.
Russianews1.ru is a domain that redirects straight to pages disseminating advertisements, so it is very likely that you will not even see it. Specifically speaking, users end up on it and then are immediately taken to ttraflabu-ok.ru (a Russian advertising server). From this URL, they are redirected to a website with commercial ads, e.g. http://traffic-media.co/mghtml/framehtml/c/1/t/603162.html and http://internetgazeta.cardvrmirrorr.ru/index.html?p=othermartuid&userid=_dawwi6s802zhs1a3. These redirections might occur if users open untrustworthy websites or click on malicious links. Additionally, Russianews1.ru might be opened to users and then redirect them to pages with ads automatically as well. If you notice that this domain is opened for you periodically, this might be a sign that a malicious application is present and working actively. Most probably, it has created a Scheduled Task on your system so that it could open this domain for you automatically from time to time. If it is the case, it will not be easy to stop this from happening. No matter how hard it might be to stop redirections to pages with ads, this task must be completed in the near future because not all these advertisements are innocent. Although they often look harmless, security specialists are sure that they might become your worst nightmare. You might even end up on a website with tons of malicious software by clicking on any of them once. Do not forget that you might click on those accidentally too, so the only effective way to avoid them is to make sure that Russianews1.ru is no longer opened for you. You should go to get rid of it to make sure that your privacy is not violated either. This might happen if you land on a page trying to extract personal information from users by any means.Russianews1.ru screenshot
