Gtfavenue

Scammers don't make adware only to irritate users, and each virus has straight aims. However, the real aim of this program differs from those declared. Usually, the depiction of each dangerous tool declares that it is very useful. 99% of suchlike software promise to assist in web-browsing. Search for sales, deals and discounts online, performing some functions in Facebook and help in the finding of recent music, games or movies - that's the features that 99% of advertising tools promise to accomplish. The first thing you should do if you want to download some software - to think, is it really helpful? How do you think, why the advantages of advertising programs are so indistinct? The "safer", "faster" or "better" web-browsing is a perfect sample of suchlike functions, as these parameters are very blurry and they're very to observe. Does this mean that adware do not do anything, and is just consuming space in the machine's memory? No, they have one important function and it is to deceive you and to obtain money from online advertising.

 

There is an opinion on the Internet that the majority of perilous programs have no specific aim. It makes sense, didn't it? Web-scammer thinks about a user that is endeavoring to eliminate his virus right now, and the feeling is really good! Actually, each dangerous software has their function, and this feature helps criminals to obtain money. It is weird that advertising program displays so many ads, but when you get it, the scheme appears pretty simple. All these ads are displayed to obtain money from clicks. Some users heard that advertising in browsers is paid on the pay-per-click system. It means that the client pays for each transition from the banner to the site. Thus, the more banners advertising program is showing you, the bigger is the possibility that you will be interested and pass the link. Yet if you don't take interest in any of the propositions - you might click on advertising, to close an inconvenient irritating ad. Any click costs money, depending on the type of advertising it can cost from 0.1 to 5 cents and in some cases even more. Although the amount isn’t big, do not neglect the quantity of victims! Confiding man can think that this advertising is good, and try to find something worthwhile among these proposals, doing tens of clicks per day. Based on our data, the quantity of victims of Gtfavenue is at least 40 000, and if each of them is making 5-10 clicks daily, the hacker's gain no longer seems so insignificant.

Advertisement software is being spread in different ways: through infected websites on which the viral download may begin at each click, and using the installation in bundles. Unwanted web-sites are very easy to identify: they appear on the last positions of search, and they are overwhelmed with annoying ads and strange links. Except that, listen to the notifications that your browser and anti-virus show. To protect your PC from the penetration via the bundled installation technique, you need to closely supervise the installation of any program. Bundled installation is simple: Gtfavenue is integrated into installers of other programs. The installer is set to offer you to install more software except the needed one. In many editions you just can't uncheck the fields, and in some - there's no notification about extraneous installation. Of course, all tools except the wanted one will be pointless or even perilous. According to this, when you see the choice between “safe install” and “partial installation” – pick the second option. Then you will be able to pick which tool you want to install and which you don’t.
