What is Lucky Starting

Lucky Starting

Hackers don't make viruses just to irritate you, and every virus has strict tasks. Unfortunately, if you believe that the description of Lucky Starting is true is really helpful - you've made a mistake. Typically, the specification of every advertising software promises that it will be super useful. 90% of suchlike software state to assist in the search for anything on the Internet. Performing some functions in Facebook, search for sales, deals and discounts in the Web and assistance in the search for new movies, games or music - that's the most spread features of advertising tools. The first thing you should do when you want to install some program - to figure out, is it really useful? In fact, the task of hackers is to convince you that their adware performs something that can't be examined. The "faster", "safer" or "better" web-browsing is a perfect example of suchlike functions, since these parameters are very blurry and nearly impossible to supervise. So, advertising software do not do anything, and is just consuming space in the PC's memory? No, they got one significant function and it is to deceive the users and to receive money from online advertising.

 

Inexperienced PC operators think that most of viruses are made without any specific reason. It makes sense, didn't it? Malware developer knows that out there somewhere is an operator which is trying to remove his unwanted program, and the feeling is very good! In fact, any malicious program performs their feature, and it is, in most cases, associated with earnings. It is weird that adware displays so many ads, but when you realize it, it appears very plain. All this advertisement is generated to obtain money on clicks. Many users heard that advertising in Internet is paid on the pay-per-click system. It means that the advertiser pays for every referral from the banner to the web-site. All adware's actions are targeted at persuading you click on the ads. Yet if user is not interested in any of the suggestions - the click might still be made, at least in order to close an uncomfortable intrusive ad. Advertisers don't care how the clicks were made, and scammers will receive their payment both for the decent click and for the unwanted one. In this case we see that quantity overcomes quality, as hackers create lots of low quality viruses that flood us with hype. Credible operator can take the ads given by virus seriously, and look for something fine among these proposals, making hundreds of clicks daily. According to our information, the quantity of victims of Lucky Starting is at least 20 000, and if all of them are doing ten to twenty referrals per day, the swindler's gain don't seem so insignificant.

Advertising software is being distributed in different ways: through infected web-pages where the malware download may begin at any click, and using the installation in bundles. Malicious web-pages are very easy to recognize: they appear on the last positions of search, and they are overwhelmed with annoying advertisement and strange links. Except that, listen to the warnings that your browser and antivirus display. To guard yourself from the infection through the bundled installation method, you should closely monitor the installation of all programs. Installation in bundles is simple: adware is integrated into installation packages of useful tools. You install some program and the pop-up window during the process emerges an offer to get some more software. All boxes are already checked, and if user clicks "OK" he gets at 3-4 programs instead of one. You need to understand that: if Lucky Starting had entered your computer through installation in bundles, you, probably, have other adware or malware. So, when you see the choice among “safe install” and “partial installation” – choose the second option. Remember about this every time you install new software - and your system will be much cleaner.
