These kinds of websites often contain malicious downloads, such as browser hijackers, ransomware, and various other kinds of malware.
Although this infection is from South Korea, little else is known about its origins. The designated publisher of the infection is called Internet Webbora web. There is no information, however, whether the application is distributed via software bundles. For the time being, the application is known to be distributed exclusively via its main website at Webbora.com. The website does contain instructions on how to remove the application, but there are in the Korean language, so it might confuse non-Korean users. As always, we have composed a manual removal guide in English at the bottom of the article.Webbora screenshot
