It can also pretend to be a fake system or program update. Like, Java, for example. You may believe you’re installing Java updates, but you’re not. In reality, you’re installing a hazardous adware. And, do you know why that scenario unfolds, at all? You’re not careful enough to realize something is wrong. That’s a common characteristic when it comes to invasive methods.
