How did I get infected with?

Zombie Invasion has an entire array of methods it can resort to in order to infiltrate your computer. Yes, the program requires your permission before its installation but don’t think that because of that you’ll see it coming. You won’t. The application is so resourceful when it comes to tricking you into allowing it in, that you won’t even realize that you have. Zombie Invasion prays on your distraction. More often than not, the program hides behind freeware because it provides the easiest access point. Why? Well, because most users pay little to no attention when going through its installation process, and make it easy for malicious programs to sneak in undetected. Users rush, and don’t read the terms and conditions and instead they agree to everything in haste. If you wish to end up with adware like Zombie Invasion, that’s the way to do it. Otherwise, be more attentive!

Why are these ads dangerous?

Zombie Invasion is an ad-supported application. That means that in order to continue its operations, the application has to produce pay-per-click revenue for the third parties behind it. That’s why the program doesn’t commence the bombardment of ads immediately after infection. Instead, it spends some time laying low and getting to know you. By studying your browsing habits, it understands which ads will have a better shot at sparking your interests and resulting in a click. Then it floods you with them. After all, every click is profit for these people. For them, that’s what counts – profit. Not the fact that the pop-ups are highly unreliable and will most likely lead to more malware getting onto your computer. Also, these ads are the reason behind your system’s frequent crashes and your computer’s performance slowing down. But these issues will seem miniscule compared to the fact that Zombie Invasion threatens your personal and financial information. It’s programmed to keep track of every move you make, and then send the collected data to the aforementioned people. Do what’s best for you and your computer, and delete Zombie Invasion immediately. It’s not worth the risk of keeping it.
