How did I get infected with?

CoolPic resorts to the usual antics when it comes to sneaking in your system undetected. The tool is so skilled at deceiving you that, not only do you agree to let it in, but you also have no idea that you did. It’s so masterful that it manages to keep its presence a secret all the way up to the appearance of the first pop-up ad. That’s when it usually hits you that you were foolish enough to permit the installation of a harmful program. Although “distracted” is a more appropriate word than “foolish” as this program prays on distraction. It usually manages to trick you by hiding behind freeware, spam email attachments, corrupted links, and websites, and if you’re not careful enough, it sneaks in undisturbed. It can also infect your system by posing as a bogus update. If you wish to avoid infection, be more attentive! A little extra attention can go a long, long way.

Why are these ads dangerous?

CoolPic is presented as a tool that helps you save money. Supposedly, it shows you all kinds of deals and bargains you can take advantage of, and provides you with coupons for online sales. But think on that for a second. How exactly do you think the program gives you this information? That’s right. Through the incessant pop-ups. Now, think whether or not, the program’s worth the frustration and the troubles these ads bring. For one, even though the pop-ups may seem enticing, it is advised to ignore them and avoid clicking on them. They are highly unreliable, and even a single click on a single ad may lead to more malware getting onto your computer. Also, since they appear continually, you start to experience frequent system crashes and a slower PC performance. But worst of all, due to CoolPic, you will be risking your personal safety. The program is designed to start cataloging your browsing activities and, basically, your every move, as soon as it infiltrates your system. Once it collects enough information from you, like your name, email address, passwords, bank account/s and credit card/s details, etc, it proceeds to send it to the third parties who support it. After it falls into their hands, they can use it as they see fit, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Don’t hand your private, sensitive data to strangers with wicked intentions! Delete CoolPic at once!
