Reduxmediia.com Adware – How Did I Get It?
One way to get advertisements by this adware application is by being redirected to download a useful at first had extension that turns out to be the adware itself.

Most users tend to download well known free software from third-party providing sites that are also believed to bundle potentially dangerous applications in the apps they provide for free download.
Reduxmediia.com – More about It
According to Trend Micro’s report this malicious domain has been associated with several PUPs as well as malware types like a downloader Trojan, named VOBFUS that downloads other malware onto the computers it infects.
This particular site may be the sole symptom that you have an adware PUP that may administer different advertisements with the ‘Reduxmediia’ caption on them. The unwanted program may also collect different information from the user PC such as browsing history, online search results, online clicks and other information. This may be done with the purpose of displaying targeted advertisements on the PC it has already affected.
What is more, researchers from Trend Micro have established that the PUP, connected with this suspicious Russia-based website has an average of 860 visits on user PCs per hour which means that it may be visited either by clicking on online advertisements or opened as a redirect.
The web site has also been reported to be opened most often in Japan as well as United States. What is more, it has been confirmed to be associated with over 1000 different files, main of which are:
• regsvr32.exe (SHA1:a774a816662ff5b75669aa5bce751bab9d0972b8)
• vpc.exe (SHA1:b67e706e10b8263fc6743f4d9a216741aae28b03)
• realplay.exe (SHA1:06a65c2ce430b5bc29a09436824c566a2b883019)
• browser.exe (SHA1:a2bdfb4861a2e07450cdd2d1a3969aec5c536a62)
• vmnat.exe (SHA1:013f6af73637696bff81cd8006709094ca08c477)
• buzz-it154.exe (SHA1:9f15899831fa9ec24febee66de684fb6e97977fe)
• sogouexplorer.exe (SHA1:aba3d877b5a782c916dbace3665dcfc62d13b234)
One of the files going by the name of sogouexplorer.exe is believed to be associated with Sogou browser hijacker– a very unhealthy and potentially dangerous ad-supported Japanese program.
PUPs such as the Reduxmediia.com adware are believed to be indirectly hazardous to user PCs mainly because of the fact that they may lead to malicious sites that may:
- Infect the user PC with malware, such as the VOBFUS trojan.
- Scam users out of their funds using different registration forms, tech support scams or SMS fraud.
More to it than that the web domains may be more, since on the website itself it says that it is just one of other domains which points out to possible interconnected domain network.
