Webalta Description

Webalta is a computer web browser hijacker that is known to change the default settings or internet settings of an infected system. Through Webalta a computer?s web browser applications may load a different pre-set default home page and later cause website redirects. In some cases the redirects from Webalta may land user's on unwanted pages or ones hacked where they may spread malware. The home.Webalta.ru web page is a known culprit of installing toolbars and making internet settings changes. The Webalta toolbar is also installed from some of the related sources, which will perform the same malicious functions in addition to potentially displaying annoying pop-up alerts or advertisements. The Webalta.ru creators are in the business of generating money from collecting site clicks, which is part of the redirect scheme rendered by the Webalta virus.
