What is Hippig

Hackers don't make harmful programs just to irritate you, and every virus has strict aims. But, if you believe that the description of Hippig is true is really useful - you're wrong. Typically, the depiction of every advertising tool promises that it will be super helpful. 99% of advertising tools declare that they will assist in web-browsing. Assistance in the download of latest games, movies or music, tracking the activity of friends in Facebook and search for sales, discounts and deals on the Internet - that's the most spread functions of advertising programs. The most important thing you should do if you want to download some program - to figure out, is it really useful? Actually, the aim of virus developers is to convince you that their adware performs a function that is impossible to verify. The "better", "safer" or "faster" web-surfing is a pure sample of suchlike functions, because these options are very vague and they're very to observe. According to this, advertising software are completely useless, and just take up space in the machine's memory? Of course not!! This software performs a highly substantial task, - to allow Internet criminals to earn from $1000 to $5000 per day from gullible users.

 

It's hard to realize where it came from but now there is an opinion that web-criminals develop the hazardous programs with no particular reason. It makes sense, didn't it? Web-scammer thinks about a user which is endeavoring to eliminate his adware, and it feels so good! Actually, each harmful software has some feature, and this function helps hackers to earn money. It is weird that adware shows so many banners, but when you understand it, it looks very simple. All this advertising is shown to earn money from clicks. Simply said, advertising services are paid according to the number of clicks done on the banner, or the quantity of referrals from banner to the website. All advertising program's efforts are targeted at convincing you click on the ads. Actually if you don't take interest in any of the ads - you may click on the link, to close an unwanted annoying ad. The system doesn't care in which way the clicks were made, and online-criminals will receive their payment both for the decent referral and for the unwanted one. Here we see that quantity overcomes quality, as hackers create hundreds of low quality viruses that flood us with hype. Credible operator can take the advertising shown by adware seriously, and search for something fine among adware proposals, making hundreds of referrals daily. According to our data, the number of victims of Hippig is counted on tens of thousands of customers, and if all of them are doing 5-10 clicks each day, the fraudster's profit don't seem so insignificant.

Advertising tools are being distributed in different ways: with help of viral web-pages on which the undesired download might begin after each click, and using the installation in bundles. The first method might be easily neutralized: you should visit only those web-sites that are fully dependable, and are on the first positions in the search results. Besides that, the browser and anti-viral tool will show the notification, if the web-site is unreliable. To protect your system from the infection through the second method, you must carefully supervise the installation of all programs. Installation in bundles is simple: advertising software is integrated into installers of free tools. The installation tool is changed to offer you to install extra programs in addition to the one that you need. In many variations you just cannot uncheck the boxes, and in some - you don't even see that you're installing something wrong. Remember: if Hippig had infected your PC with help of bundled installation, you, probably, have some more advertisement programs or viruses.
