Hi @User27622125 

The infected machines communicate with servers controlled by Gamarue to spread malware and harness click-bait fraud.

Win32/Gamarue is known to target major browsers like Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox. By adding extensions and dubious browsers, the malware can unleash spammy adware that slows your computer and disturbs your browsing experience.

 

The following information should help you:
