Newsonly.info is the URL of a dubious Russian news website. If you start seeing this website every day against your will, this might suggest that a malicious application has found a way to enter your computer unnoticed. Newsonly.info does not seem to be a malicious page at first glance. It makes it possible to search for the information on the web and access the latest news. Of course, the appearance does not always tell the real truth about the trustworthiness of a website. Specialists working at 411-spyware.com agree with that because they have quickly found that Newsonly.info is not so perfect. It might expose to potential threats, they say. It is not the only reason it would be best to get rid of this Russian domain. We are sure that a number of users who have no command of Russian will sooner or later find the presence of this page irritating because it will be opened for them periodically. Redirections to Newsonly.info can only be stopped by undoing the changes applied by the computer infection. Go to do that right after reading the last sentence of this article.

Once a browser hijacker successfully enters your computer and makes changes, you will start seeing Newsonly.info opened. A new tab with this website might be opened for you when you surf the web, or you might be simply redirected to it. Some users say that their web browsers open with Newsonly.info automatically even when they do not surf the web and their browsers are closed. Specifically speaking, Newsonly.info becomes visible every 32 minutes because a Scheduled Task opening this page automatically is created in %WINDIR%\System32\Tasks. Because of it, this domain is launched automatically periodically. It must be true that Russian, Kazakh, and Ukrainian computer users are bothered by Newsonly.info the most because statistics show that 23.8% of all visitors of this page live in Russia, 6.2% are from Kazakhstan, and 5.4% are residents of Ukraine. Newsonly.info does not look bad at all, but, according to our security specialists, users still need to be very careful with it because it might expose them to potentially malicious content, for example, users might be taken to an untrustworthy third-party page after clicking on any of these links of news articles located on the start page of this website. These third-party pages might contain untrustworthy software and promote it. In addition, privacy-related problems might also arise if users surf these websites because some of them might even try to get visitors’ personal information.

Since you already know that Newsonly.info is opened for you regularly because a malicious application has successfully entered your computer, we should talk about the methods authors of browser hijackers use to spread them. Of course, there are several different popular dissemination methods, but, without a doubt, bundling is the one used the most commonly. Bundling is such a distribution method when a browser hijacker (or another bad program) is placed together with free applications in software packages. It travels together with third-party software not without reason. Authors of malware noticed long ago that users tend not to notice their products when they come in bundles with third-party software, meaning that they allow them to enter their PCs without even realizing that more frequently. It is, of course, possible to see all those programs that are going to be installed and select which ones of them to install and which to get rid of. All users need to do is to choose the Advanced option in the setup wizard which reveals a list of all applications a software package consists of. Actually, choosing this installation option does not guarantee that malware will not enter the computer. As a consequence, there should be a security application enabled on every computer connected to the Internet too.

There are only two things you need to do to stop those annoying redirections to Newsonly.info. First, go to delete the Scheduled Task (our instructions will help you to do that) and, second, go to reset those affected web browsers to their default settings. If you feel that the manual method is not for you, use SpyHunter, a trustworthy antimalware scanner. Without a doubt, it will undo the changes applied by a browser hijacker on your PC and will also disable other malicious items for you. Your only job will be to launch the scanner.
