How did I get infected with?

Why are these ads dangerous?
Mountain Bike floods you with so many ads for a reason. It does so in order to continue its existence. The program’s primary objective is to generate pay-per-click revenue for the third parties who support it. Every ad, it tricks you into clicking on, is profit for these individuals. In fact, in order to increase its chances of success, the program spends some time observing you, gathering information on your preferences, likes, and dislikes. Before the bombardment commences, it just monitors your browsing habits. Once it feels it knows which ads will have a better shot at sparking your interest and result in a click, it floods you with them. However, Mountain Bike does not stop at simply “monitoring” you. It’s designed to cross that line. The tool’s programming requires it to keep track of every move you make, catalog it, and once it has gathered enough data from you, to send it to the unknown wicked people behind it. Do you think this harmful application is worth such a tremendous risk for? Don’t gamble with your privacy, get rid of Mountain Bike at once!
