Therefore, you have to be wary of the numerous tricks that this parasite may decide to play on you.

How did I get infected with?

The presence of a certain PC virus says quite a lot about your browsing habits. For example, judging by the fact [RANDOM WORDS] infiltrated your machine, it’s safe to assume you tend to install software without paying much attention to what exactly you install. A rule of thumb for the future – always keep an eye out for potential threats when you download free programs off of the Internet. Freeware bundles are the most effective infiltration method at the moment because hackers simply cannot ignore the fact that the majority of PC users aren’t cautious enough. Unless you opt for Advanced/Custom option in the Setup Wizard, you are no longer in control of what gets installed. Therefore, you might be unpleasantly surprised later on when you find out that there’s some nasty parasite messing with your machine. It’s incredibly ill-advised to prefer unverified websites over legitimate ones, even though the idea of installing software for free sounds very appealing. However, keep in mind that free of charge doesn’t necessarily mean virus-free as well. Another thing you should know when browsing the Web is to stay away from third-party web links, various commercials that you don’t trust, fake software updates, spam emails, messages from unknown senders and anything else that could potentially result in a headache.

Why are these ads dangerous?

The reason why most people think redirect parasites aren’t dangerous is because they can’t hurt you directly. This is a brilliant way to decrease your alertness and a great opportunity for the hackers to play havoc with your entire computer. What is worse than having your browser infected by a relentless and at the same time very aggressive and resourceful parasite? Having all three of them infected. The [RANDOM WORDS] parasite is compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer so once it gets successfully installed, it will mess up your browsing experience completely. First thing you will notice is the fact you get redirected every time you attempt to search for anything online. Why does this happen? Because generating sponsored (but useless) web links is what brings revenue to the hackers. Having said that, even though struggling to find the search result you need is a trouble, that’s not the biggest problem here. All links are potentially corrupted and possibly very dangerous. Same thing goes for the ads – pop-ups, pop-unders, in-texts, interstitials, even warning messages or software update suggestions – you can trust absolutely nothing distributed by the virus. In case you don’t land on some compromised web page filled with malware, you might still fall victim of some nasty cyber scam and imperceptibly lose you money. As you can clearly see, this parasite’s manipulations could be incredibly harmful and you honestly don’t have a single reason to keep it around.
