Suddenly Gangnamgame.net took over your homepage and you cannot remove it.
Gangnamgame.net is a malicious and intrusive browser hijacker. It slithers its way into your system quite deceptively with the help of slyness and subtlety. However, once it’s in, there’s nothing subtle about it. Issues start popping up almost immediately after it latches onto your computer. The first one you’ll encounter will be an unpleasant surprise. Shortly after infiltration, you’ll turn on your computer and, to your dismay, will find your preferred homepage and search engine switched to Gangnamgame.net. You’ll be baffled as you have not given your consent to such a change, and yet there it is. In fact, you don’t even remember installing this tool in the first place. It may sound baffling, but it’s pretty straightforward. Once the hijacker dupes you into approving its installation, it’s no longer bound to seek your approval on anything else. Let that sink in. As soon as Gangnamgame.net gains access to your system, it can perform any and all changes it so wishes without bothering to ask you first. Just try to imagine the damages this tool can do. The possibilities are endless. Protect yourself and your computer, and avoid having to deal with the grievances caused by Gangnamgame.net. Delete the hijacker as soon as you first become aware of its presence. You won’t regret it, and your future self will thank you for it.
How did I get infected with?
Gangnamgame.net is indeed bound to seek your permission before it installs itself in your system. But don’t think this helps you in any way because it doesn’t. This minor detail doesn’t slow it down one bit, and you don’t even see it coming your way. That’s because the hijacker is incredibly resourceful when it comes to fooling you. It’s highly skilled in the arts of deceit and is ready to use every trick in the book so as to dupe you into allowing it in. In fact, the tool not only gets you to approve its installation, but also keeps you oblivious to the fact that you did. More often than not, it sneaks in undetected by hiding behind freeware, spam email attachments, corrupted links, or websites. However, it can also pretend to be a false system or program update. For example, while you may be utterly convinced that you’re updating your Java or Adobe Flash Player, in reality, you’re giving the green light to a malevolent infection. Gangnamgame.net prays on your naivety, haste, and distraction. So, maybe if you don’t provide them, you won’t get stuck with it. You can also avoid dealing with the hijacker, and its ever-growing daily messes, by being more careful and not in such a rush. Remember that a little extra attention can go a long, long way.
Why is this dangerous?
Gangnamgame.net is so incredibly damaging and hazardous because it can perform any and all changes it so desires. As was already mentioned, once the hijacker slithers its way in, it’s no longer bound to ask for your permission before implementing reshuffles. In fact, it doesn’t even have to inform you! It can merely surprise you. And, what a surprise it would be to turn on your computer one day, and find it brimming with malware. Oh, yes. The hijacker can easily install as many malevolent tools as it feels like installing, and you’ll just have to deal with it. How long do you think your system will last before The Blue Screen of Death? Furthermore, Gangnamgame.net can also choose to reshuffle your system settings in a way that will prevent you from visiting your favorite websites. That may not be as harmful as getting stuck with more unwanted malware, but it’s just as infuriating. Also, another obnoxious trait of the hijacker you’ll be forced to get used to will be the fact that it will bombard you with a never-ending stream of pop-ups incessantly. Oh, yes. Just like adware, Gangnamgame.net will interrupt your browsing experience with an entire waterfall of pop-ups every time you try to go online. As that will occur quite often, your computer’s performance will slow down to a crawl, and your system will frequently crash. But the problems continue! Gangnamgame.net jeopardizes your personal and financial information as it spies on you. It keeps track of every move you make and catalogs it. When it determines it has collected enough data from you, it sends it to the unknown third parties behind it. When they have it, they can use it as they see fit. Are you willing to take such a tremendous risk? Don’t gamble with your privacy! Delete Gangnamgame.net as soon as you possibly can! It will be for the best.
