Clpremdo(.)com – How Did I Get It?

The “Clpremdo(.)com” PUP usually gets into your computer via third-party installers. It can get into your computer without your knowledge, by hiding in freeware installations and bundled packages. In these packages, additional components for installation are normally not disclosed properly and people get tricked into installing PUPs such as “Clpremdo(.)com”. Sometimes that can be avoided by clicking on the “Advanced” or “Custom” setting in an installation setup to see what you are installing.

Another way to get Clpremdo(.)com is by clicking on different pop-ups, ads, and banners and visiting suspicious websites. You might also be redirected to such sites with the help of a browser extension or from search results. Such dubious sites may have content to try to infect you with more malware.

Clpremdo(.)com” is primarily made to spread through malvertising campaigns. It may even become implemented to start with each launch of the browser. Also, become a default search engine and falsify search results. Whenever you try making a search query, the results will either point to the domain of the PUP or that of an affiliate. Clpremdo(.)com can affect any browser, especially the most popular ones, like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari.

Mostly, sponsored and incorrect results are displayed upon searching. You primarily get redirected to sites which require some download setup. Those sites will say you have an old version of Java or Adobe Flash Player or that your computer needs fixing. One of the common redirects is “Reimageplus(.)com“:

It will detect your Operating System and its version, so it can display them in the message and try to fool you into installing malware, such as the rogue anti-virus program, Reimage PC Repair shown above. There have been other related sites redirecting to the same place, trying to make you download the rogue program. They are search(.)certified-toolbar(.)com and Websearch(.)the-searcheng(.)info. Do not get fooled by the antivirus certification buttons on the Reimage site – they are not legitimate.
