Do you see the YEABD66.CC website all the time? Do you get redirected to it every time you try visiting another page? Is the answer to both questions is “yes” you have an infection on board, which forces this annoying site on you. It’s a browser hijacker and it is using the YEABD66.CC page as a front. This page is your warning sign. Don’t ignore it. Even though hijackers are not as dangerous as ransomware and Trojans they could still cause some serious damage and they shouldn’t be let stay in your system. The minute you notice this page starts looking for the hijacker`s hiding spot on your PC. Then, when you find it, delete it without hesitating. This parasite will cause you nothing but trouble and annoyance and, to top it all, you risk your privacy to be exposed to crooks.

The first thing that the hijacker does after entering your system is to infect your browser. It meddles and makes changes which you don’t remember approving. This is because the pest neither needs nor asks for your permission. It makes reshuffles as it sees fit. For instance, it replaces your homepage and preferred search engine with its own domain, which is extremely unreliable. From this moment on your browsing is no longer safe. Due to the hijacker`s presence, you will be interrupted by redirects and ads on daily basis. That’s right. You won`t be able to visit a website as you will be constantly brought back to YEABD66.CC. And your screen will be non-stop flooded with ads. Advertisements in all forms will follow you all the time, blinking and popping in front of you. This includes pop-ups, pop-unders, video ads, best prices, offers, deals, coupons… pretty much whatever you can think of. No matter what you do, don’t click on them. Not even on a single one.

The ads are dangerous. They conceal malware and your click equals your permission this malware to infect you. You can find you PC brimming with infection in no time. One parasite you can deal with but how about ten or more? How would you tackle them? Your machine will not hold much before the Blue Screen of Death appears. It is already underperforming because of the hijacker. It freezes, it lags, its speed has worsened. Don’t compromise it even more. Stay away from everything the pest generates. The redirects are as dangerous as the ads. Don’t underestimate them. And don’t use the search engine. It won’t get you reliable results. On the contrary. It will only provide sponsored links that are laced with threats.

And somehow, all of the above-mentioned issues pale in comparison to the security risk you take by not deleting the hijackers. The pest is able to spy on you and to monitor your every online move. It is not only able to but it actually has been doing so since the second it got it. It collects your personal data: IPs, emails, usernames, passwords, accounts, browser history, search queries/results. It keeps on gathering and when it decides it has enough it send everything to its developers. It practically opens the door to your private life and keeps it opened while the hackers parade it. There is a possibility the hijacker to get to your financial and identifiable details. Do you imagine what could happen if crooks get their hands on that kind of information? Don’t wait to find out. Act fast. Use our removal guide below and get rid of this nasty infection for good. All you have to do is follow the steps in the exact order and soon enough your PC will be infection-free.

Also, do you know how the hijacker infected you? It didn’t just magically appeared one day. It cannot do that as it simply needs your permission to enter. And your current situation clearly shows that you must have given it at some point. But don’t rush blaming yourself. The hijacker used deceptive tactics to fool you. It didn’t ask for your approval straightforward as this leaves to much space for rejection. One of the techniques it uses are corrupted links/pages/torrents etc. Also, spam emails are still very effective and popular. An infection could also pretend to be a program update in an attempt to dope you. And last but definitely not least, freeware bundles.

Keep in mind that none of this infiltration methods is good enough to get the infection in without you giving your stand of approval as well. And you do that out of carelessness. If you pay a little bit more attention online you could spot an intruder on time. How to be more vigilant? Read the Terms and Conditions/EULA. Don’t skip installation steps and don’t blindly open any email you receive. When installing a program always opt for the Advanced settings instead of the Basic ones. They give you complete control over the whole process. Stay away from illegitimate pages and unverified sources. There are plenty of reliable ones you can use. To sum up, be more vigilant and the thing infections need the more is your negligence.
