How to remove Iadah.co.uk
What is Iadah.co.uk:
Threat Classification: Browser Hijacker/PUP
Recently we were contacted by several computer users, which requested help removing the Iadah.co.uk website from their web browsers and while helping them, our malware researchers were able to learn more about the malicious infection. The Iadah.co.uk website is a search engine, that is classified as a dangerous website, that promotes malicious applications, like the Iadah Toolbar, which claims to “provide direct access to a whole range of content and the Yahoo Search Engine”. The Iadah Toolbar is a senseless toolbar, that wouldn’t extend your web browsing capabilities nor will provide you with some cool feature – Iadah Toolbar provides users with a shortcut to the Yahoo Search Engine search box. The Iadah Toolbar also provides a Weather widget, that is showing weather information for your current location or another location, that you’ve chosen and it shows the current location name/temperature/weather pattern (sunny,rainy,snowy etc.). The Iadah Toolbar has one last widget, that claims to provide you with a single-click access to your email provider – the widget is called – “Read your emails“, where you basically should enter your email credentials and the Iadah toolbar claims to provide you with a one-click access to your email inbox. After running a conclusive analysis, our malware researchers classified the Iadah.co.uk as a Browser Hijacker/PUP. According to our malware researchers, the Iadah Toolbar should being avoided at all cost, because it works as browser extension/add-on, which could read your entire internet traffic and even monitor your traffic for particular keywords and record the entire computer screen and capture your every keystroke from the keyboard, providing everything for a cyber crook or hacker to steal your identity. Furthermore, our malware researchers concluded, that the Iadah.co.uk Browser Hijacker/PUP could take over various windows systems and could override their web browser settings, setting new search engine, homepage and default URL for New Tabs to Iadah.co.uk. Our security experts recommend all users run a malware scan on their computers, using up-to-date, reputable and reliable malware protection products, just like the certified award-winning anti-malware application – SpyHunter4. The Iadah.co.uk browser hijacker is compatible all well-known web browsers like the Internet Explorer, the Google Chrome, and the Mozilla Firefox.
Most often, the Iadah.co.uk hijacker comes packed with other shareware / freeware software applications in software bundles, configured to install several software programs at once by default, using the express/recommended installation process. That’s why our security experts recommend all users to always opt-out the default/quick installation and to choose / select instead the advanced/custom installation process, which requires step-by-step confirmations and where you are in the control at all times. The possible distribution of Iadah.co.uk browser hijacker may vary, but is not limited to – installing 3rd party toolbars, popular freeware products, infected e-mail attachments, unintentional clicks on malicious ads or ad banners, torrent downloads or other P2P communications.
Iadah.co.uk will fill up your entire desktop screen with very irritating, dangerous and unwanted ads, that could lead to other much more dangerous malware infections – like ransomware, cryptoviruses, fake anti-malware programs or computer lockdown infections. You should also know and be aware that the Iadah.co.uk hijacker would monitor your online browsing activity like the web searching, browsing history, session ids, tracking cookies, account credentials and even local usernames and/or password entries. The collected data will later be sold to other 3rd party companies for marketing purposes.
