Suddenly Kb-ribaki.org took over your homepage and you cannot remove it.
Kb-ribaki.org is advertised as a legitimate search engine. However, as you could imagine, this is a virus. There’s nothing legitimate about it which means it’s time to take action. The sooner you get rid of the intruder, the better. Hidden behind its alluring facade of a harmless program, Kb-ribaki.org is malicious and harmful. This is a classic member of the nasty browser hijacker family. Have you crossed paths with hijackers so far? Keep in mind that the parasite has various tricks up its sleeve. You simply can’t afford to overlook the issue. Ignoring this program instead of deleting it ASAP would be a bad move and you know it. Then why waste time? Kb-ribaki.org’s shenanigans begin as soon as your PC gets infected. One more thing – the PC gets infected in silence. Most infections travel the Web using stealth and deceit. Your active co-operation was never really required; Kb-ribaki.org took advantage of your haste. To learn more about the tricky ways hijackers get spread online, keep on reading. Once this pest lands on board, it takes over your browsers. Yes, all of them. This thing is immensely resourceful and very aggressive. It installs a browser extension which allows the virus to manipulate your browsing activities. Both your default search engine and browser homepage are now replaced with Kb-ribaki.org. The parasite’s domain, however, is highly unreliable. All it generates are sponsored, modified, dangerous web links. Furthermore, the virus presents these questionable links as accurate (not to mention, safe) search results. Clicking a seemingly harmless link could cause you a great headache. Remember, there are some corrupted web links currently on your PC screen. They may lead directly to dangerous pages infested with malware. Thus, you may compromise your already compromised machine much further. Do you now see why this infection must be removed? Not only does it lie to your face but it also exposes you to malware. In addition, the virus may install additional toolbars (without any permission). It’s also possible to come across random commercials and fake, unreliable pop-up ads. Last but not least, the hijacker monitors your browsing-related activities. Hackers now have free access to search queries, browsing history, passwords, usernames, email addresses. Your IP addresses get monitored too. Crooks don’t tend to think twice when presented the opportunity to make easy profit. You could be positive they WILL sell your private data to questionable third parties. The problem is, your privacy ends up being seriously jeopardized.
How did I get infected with?
This virus usually gets attached to other programs. You should know that software bundles hold many risks for your safety. Unless you opt for the Custom option, you remain oblivious of what you install. There might be some sneaky intruder in the bundle. There might be a whole bunch of infections. You see, rushing the installation leaves your computer vulnerable to potential threats. Many parasites could get downloaded along the safe programs you originally wanted. What’s even more worrisome is that you have no idea that you’ve just compromised your own PC. To prevent such a nasty scenario, take your time. Always be cautious when installing freeware or shareware bundles. Check out the EULA (End User License Agreement) or Terms and Conditions. There might be some term and/or condition you strongly disagree with. Keep in mind how virulent cyber parasites could be and what great damage they cause. Don’t underestimate malware.
Why is this dangerous?
The browser plugin added by Kb-ribaki.org is quite a pest. It’s compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. As you could imagine, none of your browsers is reliable anymore. Quite the opposite. Your infected browsers now display dangerous links and you get constantly redirected. Apart from the obvious fact you can’t find what you search for, you could easily install malware. Is installing malware really what you aim for, though? The Kb-ribaki.org hijacker generates web traffic to some particular pages. Its main concern is to help hackers gain dubious revenue so your safety is irrelevant. There are some harmful links on your PC screen. What you need to do is stay away from them and uninstall the hijacker. This program slows down the PC speed significantly. It also causes your browsers to crash and freeze. You have absolutely no reason to hesitate. To delete the virus manually, please follow our detailed removal guide down below.
