How did I get infected with?

As we already mentioned, the Rocket Tab virus relies heavily on its website to attract PC users and to trick them into installing the parasite. However, you should keep in mind that this is an adware program which means it rarely gets downloaded voluntarily. A much more common scenario is the stealthy technique of bundled freeware. Usually Rocket Tab sneaks in behind your back when you download programs off of the Internet. Hackers simply cannot ignore the fact that most people tend to rush the installation process and if you don’t pay enough attention, you might install something highly unwanted and very harmful. Remember, not only adware parasites travel the web attached to freeware – Trojan horses, for example, do it too. This is why it’s incredibly ill-advised to install any kind of software from unverified websites and even if you do go for a legitimate page, you still have to be cautious and choose the advanced/custom option. That is how you remain in control of the software that gets installed and you have the chance to deselect anything you don’t trust on time. Other popular infiltration methods are spam email-attachments, corrupted third-party web links, bogus program updates, etc. Keeping your PC virus-free requires your full attention as hackers are extremely inventive when it comes to malware; make sure you always outwit them.

Why are these ads dangerous?

As this program found its place in our website, it obviously can’t be harmless. Once it gets successfully installed, this thing gets activated automatically and attacks your browsers without wasting time. The Rocket Tab parasite is perfectly compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer so regardless of which your favorite browser is, it will experience some of the parasite’s malicious effects. First of all, the extension Rocket Tab adds allows it to inject your browsers with commercials and they are just as random as they are irritating. The endless pile of coupons, discounts, banners, pop-ups ads, interstitials, video ads and so on covers up every single website you visit so doing anything online becomes quite a struggle. Not only are the ads annoying; they are also incredibly dangerous. The virus is ad-supported which means it doesn’t discriminate between real ads, scam ads and corrupted web links so you will be bombarded with all of them and it’s up to fate what might happen to your device if you click. Therefore, you have to avoid anything the virus displays; same thing goes for various program updates and additional toolbars Rocket Tab may suggest. That could also be malware in disguise.
