Ransomware can get onto customer’s computer in lots of techniques, in attempts to make the operator to download a malicious file. Commercial software act differently. Officially, adware don’t cause immediate damage to your computer and cannot be named “viruses”. They can drive you mad; they interfere to surf the Web, although they can’t cause any damage to your laptop and the data, stored on it. In this regard, adware is distributed in legal ways. Many victims download it by themselves, reading and confirming the EULA. The most common technique is an installation in bundle with useful unpaid software.
The method of bundled download has to be inspected singly, because it’s the very common method of penetration by malware and redirects, as well as by all kinds of fake browsers and extensions. The way is not difficult: harmful files are added to the installer of the wanted software. This file can’t be checked, and its content can’t be seen. The only thing that victim can perform with this file is installation. Thus, if user installs the wanted software, virus installs too. Even if adware causes lots of uncomfortable effects, it is totally legal, because it doesn’t harm the system and the information, kept on it. At the phase of penetration you still have a chance to avoid infection. The chance is called “installation for experienced users”. During the installation process you can choose in which manner you want to install the program. It may be recommended or advanced. The easy way lets the adware to choose what to install. And, in the majority of cases, it decides to install everything. If you pick the second technique, you will see all tools, prepared to be installed, and will be able to choose personally, which programs to install. Names of installation methods might be different, but the essence is always the same – the criminals want to show that it is better to close your eyes and click “Yes”. We hope that knowing the manners, which malware uses to get into your computer, it may assist you to avoid infection.
Many visitors want to know why people make adware that irritate users so much, if they can just put banners in specially created places? In fact, at its big cost, legal ad attracts too few users. Man can’t just put the ad on the reputable website, because it is really expensive. Advertising deployment of the site in search results of any search engine is even more expensive. At the same time, this banner on any website can attract no more than ten percent of all users that have seen it. We have to precise that 10 percent is the unbelievably good outcome, but more often the count is between 1 and 0.01%. Advertising tool can redirect almost all victims to the specified website at lower cost. The majority of users do not consider adware hazardous, until their computers are totally clogged, and use infected computers for years, suffering the significant discomfort during the use of Web, and thinking that this is OK. Suchlike people are assuring a permanent flow of victims to untrusted web-pages, allowing them to function for a many years.
If you fulfilled all steps accurately, Mesmobilea.com must be eliminated at this time, and now you should secure your computer from viral threats. Except the AV-tool, there is another thing that may shield your machine and your files against malware: it’s your own experience. Software don’t allow errors, but users do, and these mistakes are the main cause of adware infections. There are few rules that you should know, if you want your machine to be protected:
- Antivirus is the first line of your computer’s protection, so it must be enabled and updated. Some viruses might ask you to turn the anti-virus off. It might come in form of the system message or in different way. Such messages are completely viral, and you must disregard them.
- You shouldn’t disregard the advices of your browser. Browsers have very nice methods of adware detection and reaction on customer’s perilous actions. If your browser notifies you about the peril of the page – do not go to this site.
- Don’t use the capabilities of suspicious sites. These are any type of sites with pornographic content, ForEx broker’s sites and lesser-known web-pages that distribute pirated content or defective products.
- Always closely follow the installing of all software. User agreement is very annoying, and there is a bunch of unnecessary info, but there might be something considerable. During the installation of the good program, created by well-known software makers such as Kaspersky, Adobe or Microsoft, you can believe in their fame. But the junior developers always need resources, and they often consent to spread undesired software through their own software. When you install any program, it might give you the option between a “common” and “complex” manner of installing – choose the second variant.
- Be watchful with e-mails. If you have a message, which you didn’t expect, and you don’t know who send it – we strongly advise you not to open it.
- The backups should be stored on an external hard drive. If your computer is often attacked by adware, the best decision would be to keep the important files on an external hard drive that will become your backup in the case of highly dangerous infection.
