How did I get infected with?
Hijackers are a menace. But they’re a crafty menace. They not only manage to sneak into your system. They do so undetected. And, that takes skill, considering they have to ask for, and receive, your permission. Yes, such tools have to seek your approval on their install. They look for your compliance, and you gave it. After all, if you hadn’t, you wouldn’t be in your current predicament. But how do you suppose that happened? How did that came to be? How did you agree to install an infection, and not even know it? Even though, it sought your permission. Well, it duped you. The hijacker behind Videostalking.com/test tricked you. By turning to the old but gold means of infiltration. The tool can gain access by hiding behind freeware or spam email attachments. Or, corrupted links or sites. Or, it can also pretend to be a bogus update. Like, Adobe Flash Player or Java. Can you spot the common denominator? Each means of invasion relies on carelessness. It preys on it. The cyber threat needs your distraction, naivety, and haste to slither in. So, don’t provide them! Instead, be extra thorough. Take your time, and always do your due diligence. Even a little extra caution can save you a ton of troubles.
Why is this dangerous?
The Videostalking.com/test page acts as a front. Think of it as the face of the infection. The cyber threat is using the site as a shield to lurk behind. And, hidden somewhere in the corners of your PC, it makes a mess. The site’s appearance is a sign. It’s the hijacker’s way of announcing its presence. By redirecting you to Videostalking.com/test, the tool reveals itself. It clues you into its existence. And, once it does that, troubles ensue! First, you’ll begin to see the Videostalking.com/test site everywhere! When you open a new tab, surf the web, all the time. The page also replaces your default search engine and homepage. And, each time you use your browser, you get redirected. Videostalking.com/test becomes a part of your daily routine. It will plague you all day, every day for as long as the infection remains. What’s more, it won’t be the only disruption you suffer from. You’ll also get bombarded with pop-up ads. The continuous disruptions won’t go unnoticed for long. The ads and the redirects slow down your computer’s performance. Also, they lead to frequent system crashes. But these are all minor intrusions, compared to the security issue you face. The hijacker threatens to expose your private life to strangers. Once the tool sneaks into your system, it starts to spy on you. It keeps track of your browsing activities, and records them. Every online move you make gets cataloged. Once the tool determines it has gathered enough data from you, it hands it over. It sends it to the third parties that published it. Once these unknown individuals get a hold if your private data, they can use it as they wish. Are you willing to trust strangers with your personal and financial information? Think long and hard before you answer. There’s a lot relying on your response.
