What is Noticiasalpunto.net Redirect Thing?

The Noticiasalpunto.net browser hijack is an attack that likes to target users who are running the Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or Internet Explorer web browsers, and will immediately redirect the user to the Noticiasalpunto.net webpage any time they attempt to go to another website or perform a search tesk. This is a very dangerous attack, and the majority of anti-virus programs and spyware programs will not detect it allowing it to begin to install without a trace. Norton is the most trusted name in computer safety and it cannot detect this threat, so that will give you an idea of how dangerous this can be. The hackers can gain access to the entire computer system before there is even a hint of an issue. The Noticiasalpunto.net browser hijack will disable the systems firewall making it vulnerable to attacks and other viruses being installed.

Aside from installing other dangerous attacks, the hackers gain remote access to the computer and they have the ability to search every file and look at every single piece of information stored on the computer, including pictures, documents, browser history, and anything else they want to activate. While they are in the system they can also install spyware software that will record every single keystroke and return the data to them along with the browser history. When compared side by side they can quickly identify user names and passwords to email accounts, social media profiles, and even online banking details!

When the Noticiasalpunto.net browser hijack is installed the computer user will notice that regular operations such as shutting down and restarting will take much longer than normal, and the overall “feel” of the computer will be slower. Programs will take longer to respond and there may even be a delayed response or difficulty accessing the Internet. The most obvious change will be the webpage that the browser is redirected to. The Noticiasalpunto.net page will never display proper search results and instead it will lead the user to malicious web pages and it will also display several ads on the page as well as pop up ads that will not be relevant to the search being performed.
