High Stairs does have an official website, however, it cannot be installed from there (which is a classic sign that a program is unreliable). That leaves us with underhanded techniques only, so the question how the parasite infiltrated your machine has a very simple answer – High Stairs got installed behind your back. We don’t have to go into detail about all the dangers such secretive methods hide, do we? Just picture having a Trojan on your device and not having a clue about it. If that thought made your palms sweat a a bit, then you know how careful you have to be every time you download something off of the Internet. Make sure you pay some extra attention to software bundles because that is the most common distribution method of adware parasites. Don’t forget to check the programs in the bundle and don’t rush the installation process. Remember those Terms and Condition you always accept and never read? You should definitely check them as well.
