I started getting this new tab that pops up out of nowhere. The website is 9newstoday.net and the title is News Daily 7. It’s a fake news website about how single moms can make $7k a month, etc.
I tried to google it, but I’m still really confused, because most things say it redirects your Google searches, and mine doesn’t do that (like I said it just makes a new tab at various times, nothing about Google), plus it says that to get rid of it, use Malwarebytes or SpyBot, and I did full scans with both of those, but it’s still happening. I also have Microsoft Security Essentials.
Does anyone happen to know what this is and what I can do about it? Or at least how dangerous it is? It’s not THAT much of a problem so far, but could it get worse?
