Bodloster.com – Why Do I Have It and What Can It Do?
Bodloster.com redirect is a questionable website that loads in your web browser without your permission. When this happens you could see the main page of this redirect in a new tab window like shown in the picture below:
The redirect attempts to convince you that a click on the allow button will enable you to watch some kind of entertaining content. In fact, this action could endanger the overall security of your system and data. So be advised to avoid any interactions with Bodloster.com when your browser redirects you to it.
There are several possible explanations why your browser keeps redirecting you to the bogus website Bodloster.com. On one hand, you may have visited a poorly secured and as a result corrupted website that redirects all users to spammy web pages. On the other hand, you may have installed a potentially unwanted program without noticing this process. This is usually realized with the help of compromised free software installers. Unfortunately, many free programs that feature extra apps in their installers do not disclose properly the details about these extras so that users are more likely to get tricked into installing them along with the desired app. So what could you do to prevent this side effect next time you decide to install any program? Make sure to select the Advanced/Custom setup option as it is sometimes configured to inform you about the presence of extra apps.
Since it is very likely that your system has been affected by an undesired program, it is also very likely that many details of yours will be collected without your permission and transferred to PUP’s servers. And once you become a victim of unsolicited data collection you may start receiving lots of annoying ads based on your interests. As of recorded details, they may be:
- Visited URLs and websites
- Browser’s home page
- Search queries
- Search queries on the visited web pages
- Type of used browser
- Operating system type
- Internet protocol (IP) address
- Geographic location
- The domain name of current Internet service provider (ISP)
- Diagnostic information which describes how their Services are operating on the system
The redirect could affect popular web browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Opera and Safari. You could find detailed instructions on how to clean up your affected browser and restore its default settings in the guide below.
