Rather than providing any of the functionality promised, they cause unwanted redirects, collect private data, and deliver no value for regular users.
To promote ru, developers use a deceptive marketing method called "bundling", since they know that users often rush the download/installation processes and skip most steps.
This situation can be prevented by taking two simple steps.
Firstly, never rush when downloading and installing software.
You will encounter the problem when you download an application called MPlayer X in your MAC in order to watch any episode. Every time you will search anything you will get a pop up on a new tab.
This adware apparently follows a bundling workflow to adulterate Mac devices.
Set-ups infiltrate Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, assigning the new tab URL/default search engine/homepage options to ru.
The collected information may be personally identifiable and shared by developers with cooperating third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who generate revenue by misusing private information.After uninstalling the potentially unwanted program that causes browser redirects to the ru website, scan your computer for any remaining unwanted components.To scan your computer, use recommended malware removal software.Therefore, data tracking can lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft.If you encounter redirects to ru, uninstall all suspicious programs/browser add-ons (helper objects) and never visit this site again.
