You will notice a download button on the website mentioned in the previous paragraph, however, this button is inactive and is only there to make the web page look genuine. LittleWeaver’s website is identical to the homepages of other adware programs developed by SuperWeb LLC, so it is not surprising that this application is distributed in the exact same manner as the rest. This means that LittleWeaver enters the system without permission when users acquire compromised downloads or follow suspicious links they see on dubious websites. To prevent the infiltration of unwanted applications, users should be very careful with the software they acquire and the websites they visit.
Why are these ads dangerous?
Same as the other adware applications from the SuperWeb family, LittleWeaver employs data tracking cookies to collect information about your activity on the Internet. The program is interested in details such as visited websites, entered search terms, viewed items, and many more. The collected information is used for the ads to be made more relevant to your interests. This is done to lure you into clicking on as many as possible. For every click the developers of LittleWeaver receive money, but also every time you click an ad you will be taken to a web page belonging to the application’s third-party sponsors.
