Ultimatenews.org is a website that will not provide you with any benefit. Some people might look for news site and land on Ultimatenews.org, however the website doesn’t have any news articles. The website was developed with only one purpose – to promote the adware. Ultimatenews.org will offer user to install a browser add-on or toolbar that will supposedly help to find favorite news sites. We do not recommend installing the browser extension advertised by Ultimatenews.org, because you are risking to install some malicious program on your computer.
Ultimatenews.org itself is not dangerous, but more interesting is how users are taken to that website. This path begins with the infection of user’s computer with browser hijacker. During first system boot or restart the hijacker modifies a system registry, enabling the automatic opening of the browser window with a Ultimatenews.org website every time you turn on your computer. Moreover, this infection can add an extension or a toolbar in Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, which will display advertisements in different websites that you open. After that, even the websites that never had and physically cannot have any advertising, now showing advertising banners all over the screen.
In addition to the written above, Ultimatenews.org can affect standard Windows shortcuts, so every time you want to launch some program the window with annoying website will be open. Furthermore, this browser hijacker can fully take control over your web browser, change your home page, the page that opens when you create a new tab and replace the default search engine.
If we look at Ultimatenews.org hijacker from a technical point of view, we can say that it is not a virus. But it behaves very similar. It secretly infects the computer, just like a virus, hiding on the computer at the same time makes difficult or completely impossible its removal. And of course it can do whatever it wants, including unauthorized actions.
Ultimatenews.org browser hijacker usually appears in your web browser, after installing some freeware programs. Most of the times those programs are downloaded from unofficial websites or via torrents. Keep in mind that those programs have modified installer and include additional, mostly malicious, programs. To avoid the infection, you should avoid downloading software from unreliable sites. During the installation we always recommend reading EULA and selecting custom installation to be able to see the whole content of the installer package and select what we really need to install.
