All parameters of Puklusi.ru, as well as its methods of penetration and the ways in which it performs the advertising activity, are pretty common. Puklusi.ru uses drive-by download and bundled installation to get onto user’s computers. After that, hijacker changes the browser settings in the way they perfectly fit to its goals. The targets of these changes are default search engine and homepage. They are changed to "Puklusi.ru/webar" web-page, from which user is being constantly redirected to different suspicious websites.

This page appears in an infected browser each time it’s being launched, and each time when the new tab is opened.
