Do you mention the high quantity of ads on each website, or the switched start page?

What is Dentesk

Hackers don't create viruses just to irritate you, and every adware has exact goals. Unfortunately, if you believe that the description of Dentesk is really helpful - you're wrong. Commonly, the specification of adware declares that it is extremely helpful. 99% of adware state to support you to look for anything in the Internet. Supervising the activity of friends in Facebook, search for discounts, deals and sales in the Web and assistance in the search for recent movies, games or music - that's the most spread functions of adware. The first thing you need to do if you want to download any program - to figure out, is it really useful? By the way, the task of virus creators is to declare that their software performs a function that can't be monitored. The "faster", "safer" or "better" search on the Internet is a brilliant sample of suchlike feature, since these parameters are really indistinct and they're very to observe. Does this mean that advertising programs are completely useless, and just take up space on your hard drive? No, they got one main task and it is to trick the users and to obtain thousands of dollars from online advertising.

 

There is an opinion on the Internet that most of viruses are created without any specific reason. Malicious programs retard the system, prevent the work of certain software, and web-fraudsters are so excited about it that they want to spend many hours, creating pointless programs.

It is weird that advertising program shows so many pop-ups, but when you realize it, the scheme looks very simple. All these ads are generated to make money from clicks. Simply said, defrayal of promotional services is made based on the quantity of clicks made on the banner, or the quantity of clicks from pop-up to the website. Thus, the more links adware shows you, the higher is the possibility that you will be interested and pass the link. Actually if you don't take interest in any of the propositions - the click might still be performed, to close an uncomfortable irritating banner. Advertisers don't care in which way the click was done, and hackers will receive their payment both for the decent referral and for the undesired one. In this case we see how quantity beats quality, as hackers make lots of low quality programs that flood us with hype. Trusting user can think that suchlike advertising is trustworthy, and try to find something interesting among these offers, doing tens of referrals per day. According to our data, the number of victims of Dentesk is at least 50 000, and if all of them are making 5-10 clicks every day, the fraudster's earnings no longer seems so low.
