Kissmanga malware

Kissmanga is the program that possibly delivers malware to its users because users claim to associate malicious activities with this website. Unfortunately, this manga sharing service is related to many ad-supported sites and advertisers directly, so the website itself is filled with commercial pop-ups, banners and other content that caters to various people. Mainly, this content includes video game commercials, promotional material for software or anything else related to manga or anime. Unfortunately, once the banner or pop-up is clicked redirects come up on the screen and your browsing becomes significantly slower due to tons of different windows open on the web browser.

The most annoying issue is that Kissmanga malware is a service that people tend to use, but are frustrated due to suspicious sites that appear on the screen and exposes to malicious material. Different types of ads can cause push notification pop-ups or redirects to online shopping pages, video game promotions.

Kissmanga is a sister site of Kissanime – another site that is distributing and streaming Japanese animation. Both of these websites are unsafe and can result in Kissmanga virus infection. Besides, not only can users infected their computers with malware, but they get in trouble with the law due to copyright infringement.[1] You should rely on other services that not include this intrusive commercial content if you don’t want to risk your own privacy or any legal consequences.

Kissmanga malware is a set of computer infections that are associated with the Kissmanga website. Similarly to torrent sites, this domain hosts thousands of manga (Japanese comics) that might be copyrighted. What is more, the site is flooded with intrusive, inappropriate pop-up ads and redirects that do not make the browsing easy on Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and other browsers.

Kissmanga malware itself is mainly injected into malicious ads that redirect to dangerous websites. Additionally, users on Reddit complained[3] that most of the visits to the sites like,, and all subdomains might result in adware or even malware infections. Therefore, experts recommend staying away from the website that might harm the computer.

On secure websites, advertisers can buy space and put their ads into slots. This content is usually regulated pretty heavily on legitimate websites. However, on streaming and file-hosting sites, owners often only care about the profits from clicks. For that reason, insecure or even malicious ads can be placed, resulting in Kissmanga malware infection. Every click on the commercial pop-up or banner on this site leads to other shady commercial pages or gaming sites.

Redirects happen when you click anywhere on the website and those banners, pop-ups or in-text ads contain clickbait or possibly useful deals, offers, so people are more eager to click on the content. Some sites can also try to trick you into subscribing to additional notifications. the same happens with Missmanga malware itself. If you allow the content, the system gets, even more, slower due to those background processes. Kissmanga adware-type intruder

The symptoms of the Kissmanga virus varies, depending on the type. Most users said that they typically end up with adware on their devices which is usually not malicious, but pretty annoying infection to deal with. However, others reported that their accounts got hijacked and malicious messages sent out of their email accounts.

One of the most common complain is shady ad-tracking services that include accessing personal information and possibly sharing those details with third-party advertising companies or malicious people. This is somewhat addressed in the Privacy Policy on the Kissmanga page, but the following text can hide more questionable uses of that collected information:

We allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. 

You should complete Kissmanga malware removal as soon as possible if you recently visited the site or downloaded something. Because the array of infections can vary, we suggest you use a universal solution – anti-malware software. To eliminate PUPs that might get in when you clicked on an ad, use security applications that specialize in potentially unwanted programs and malware. Such detection may indicate JS/Adware.Agent.AA or any other name of the cyber threat, but focus on removal since those names differ from tool to tool.

Malware is dangerous, and it can result in a variety of negative effects, such as file loss, personal information leakage, compromised system operation, and similar. Therefore, users should take into account these consequences before visiting high-risk websites. Unfortunately, the risks often are overlooked, and users still visit domains that expose them to malicious software.

To protect yourself from malware, security experts[4] recommend these precaution measures:

  • Use anti-malware software at all times;
  • Use a Firewall;
  • Prepare backups of your personal files;
  • Use ad-block;
  • Update your OS and installed software regularly;
  • Remove Adobe Flash and Java or set it to run-on-click functionality;
  • Use strong passwords;

Additionally, beware of software bundling. This technique is often used to distribute potentially unwanted programs without users noticing. Therefore, do not rush through installation steps and always pick Advanced or Custom installation settings instead of Recommended ones.
