What is Hipmy

Every utility has its own task, and Hipmy is no exception. However, if you believe that the description of this tool is true is really helpful - you're wrong. Usually, the description of adware declares that it will be very helpful. 95% of adware state to help you to look for anything in the Internet. Help in the search for latest movies, games or music, performing some functions in Facebook and search for sales, discounts and deals online - that's the most prevalent features of adware. The most important thing you have to do when you're going to install some software - to think, is it really helpful? Don't you wonder why the advantages of adware are so indistinct? The "safer", "better" or "faster" web-browsing is a perfect example of suchlike function, since these parameters are very vague and they're very to trace. Does this mean that advertising programs are completely useless, and just take up space on your hard drive? No, they have one important feature and it is to deceive you and to earn money from online advertising.

 

Novice PC operators believe that the majority of dangerous programs have no particular goal. It makes sense, didn't it? Web-scammer thinks about a user that is endeavoring to delete his malware right now, and the feeling is really good! In fact, each malicious program has their feature, and this feature helps swindlers to obtain money. For instance, the indiscriminate showing of dozens of ads on every page isn't accidental. All this advertising is shown to make money from referrals. Some people know that advertisement in the Web is paid on the special system, called pay per click, which means that the customer pays for every transition from the pop-up to the web-page. So, the more banners advertising program displays you, the bigger is the chance that you will be interested and click on the link. Even if you are not interested in any of the ads - you still click on advertising, at least to hide an unwanted intrusive banner. Every referral costs money and based on the sort of advertisement it can count up to 5 cents and sometimes even more. Here we see how quantity beats quality, as scammers develop thousands of trashy viruses that flood us with intrusive ads. Gullible customer can take the advertising provided by adware seriously, and search for something entertaining among adware offers, making dozens of clicks daily. According to our data, the number of machines, infected by Hipmy is counted on tens of thousands of people, and if each of them is doing five to ten clicks daily, the hacker's gain don't seem so insignificant.

Advertising programs are being distributed in many methods: through infected web-pages on which the malware download may start at each click, and using the installation in bundles. The "website" way can be easily avoided: you should only visit web-pages which are considered dependable, and appear on the first positions in the search results. Besides that, the browser and anti-virus program will show you notification, if the website is suspicious. The bundled installation technique isn't related to websites: you should be aware of it only when you install some programs. Installation in bundles is simple: adware is integrated into installation packages of free programs. The installer is modified to suggest you to install extra programs except the one that you need. In some versions you just can't cancel the process, and in some - there's no notification about extraneous programs. You have to understand that: if Hipmy had infected your system through bundled installation, there probably are other undesired programs or viruses. According to this, if you see the option among “safe install” and “partial installation” – choose the second variant. Remember about this every time you install something - and your computer will be noticeably cleaner.
