Aren't you worried about the increased amount of advertising on all websites, or the shifted homepage?

These are the marks of adware’s presence in the system and if you've seen some of them – your computer is in jeopardy.

What is Bigfarm.lnk

The viruses aren't made for fun, and every adware has strict goals. Unfortunately, the real purpose of this advertising tool doesn't coincide with the stated ones. Usually, the depiction of adware declares that it will be super helpful. 95% of adware promise to help in web-browsing. Search for deals, discounts and sales online, help in the finding of latest games, movies or music and performing some functions in social networks - these are the most prevalent functions of adware. The primary thing you need to do when you want to download some software - to think, is it really useful? In fact, the task of hackers is to state that their program performs a function that is impossible to monitor. The "faster", "better" or "safer" web-browsing is a pure example of suchlike functions, because these options are really blurry and almost impossible to observe. Does this mean that adware are completely useless, and is just consuming space in the machine's memory? Of course not!! This software performs a very significant function, - to let online fraudsters to obtain from $1000 to $5000 per day from trustful users.

 

There is a belief in the Web that most of dangerous programs have no particular goal. Harmful programs spoil the system, interfere with the functions of good tools, and Internet-criminals are so excited about it that they want to spend their money and time to design silly and irritating viruses. You have to know that any dangerous software has specific feature, and this feature helps criminals to earn money. It is difficult to guess why adware generates so much pop-ups, but since you understand it, it looks pretty simple. All this advertisement is displayed to obtain money on referrals. Simply stated, advertising services are paid according to the amount of clicks made on the pop-up, or the quantity of clicks from pop-up to the web-site. All adware's actions are aimed at making you pass the link. Even if you're not interested in adware's ads - you still click on advertising, at least in order to close an uncomfortable intrusive ad. The system doesn't care how the clicks were made, and online-criminals will get their payment both for the decent click and for the unwanted one. Although this price isn’t large, do not neglect the number of clicks! Confiding user can decide that suchlike ads are trustworthy, and try to find something entertaining among adware offers, making hundreds of referrals daily. Based on our information, the amount of machines, infected by Bigfarm.lnk is counted on hundreds of thousands of users, and if all of them are making one to five referrals per day, the fraudster's profit don't seem so low.

This effect is Bigfarm.lnk's power to change browser controls on purpose to distribute advertising more efficiently that makes it highly vulnerable to all sorts of malware.

We know two main methods of adware spread: the placement on the infected web-sites and installation in bundles with good software. The first method might be easily avoided: you must only visit web-pages that are fully trustworthy, and appear on the first positions in the search results. Besides that, your browser and antivirus program will show the notification, if the web-site is unreliable. The bundled installation technique isn't related to websites: you should be aware of it only when you during the installation of programs. This method is based on user's credulity and the harmful habit to press OK before you understand what you are agreeing with. The installation program is changed to offer you to install extra software instead of the needed one. All fields are already checked, and if user clicks "OK" he installs at 4-5 programs instead of one. You have to understand that: if Bigfarm.lnk had entered your system via installation in bundles, you, probably, have some more adware or viruses. According to this, if you see the choice among “safe installation” and “partial installation” – choose the second option. Then you will be able to choose which program you want to install and what you don’t.
