What is Maps Frontier

Maps Frontier

Maps Frontier is other version of MapsFrontier toolbar by Ask. Hackers don't make adware only to irritate users, and every virus has precise goals. Unfortunately, if you believe that the description of Maps Frontier is really helpful - you're wrong. Usually, the specification of adware declares that it is highly useful. 90% of adware declare that they can help in web-browsing. Performing some functions in Twitter, search for deals, discounts and sales in the Web and assistance in the search for latest games, music or movies - that's the most spread functions of advertising tools. The first thing you have to do when you're about to download any program - to figure out, is it really useful? Actually, the task of hackers is to state that their software performs something which is impossible to check. The "better", "faster" or "safer" search in the Web is a perfect sample of suchlike feature, because these parameters are really vague and almost impossible to trace. So, adware do not do anything, and just take up space on your hard drive? Of course not!! These programs perform a very substantial function, - to allow Internet scammers to earn from $1000 to $5000 a day from unsuspecting users.

 

We don't remember how it happened but today some people think that Internet-scammers develop the hazardous programs without any logical reason. It makes sense, didn't it? Hacker knows that out there somewhere is an operator which is struggling to uninstall his malware, and it feels really good! In fact, each dangerous software performs their function, and it is often associated with profit. For instance, the indiscriminate showing of dozens of ads on each website isn't accidental. All this advertisement is displayed to make money on referrals. Some people know that browser advertising is paid on the pay-per-click system, which means that the client pays for each referral from the ad to the web-page. All advertising software's actions are targeted at persuading you pass the link. Yet if you're not interested in hacker's suggestions - the click may still be performed, at least to close an inconvenient irritating banner. Each referral costs money, based on the type of advertisement it can count up to 5 cents and for some sorts of advertisement even more. Although the payment isn’t large, do not forget about the amount of infected computers! Credible customer can take the ads provided by malware in earnest, and search for something worthwhile among these propositions, doing dozens of clicks daily. Based on our information, the amount of machines, infected by Maps Frontier is at least 40 000, and if each of them is doing 10-20 clicks per day, the hacker's gain don't seem so low.

There are two primary ways of advertising tool spread: the placing on the infected web-sites and installation in bundles with free programs. The "website" method may be lightly neutralized: you should visit only those sites that are completely safe, and appear on the first positions in the search results. Except that, your browser and antivirus program will display the notification, if the web-site is suspicious. To shield yourself from the infection via the second method, you should carefully supervise the installation of each program. Bundled installation technique works because of people's credulity and the harmful habit to click OK before you read what you are agreeing with. You install some software and the pop-up window during the process emerges an offer to install some more software. All boxes are pre-checked, and if user clicks "OK" he installs at 4-5 tools in addition to the wanted one. Remember: if Maps Frontier had entered your machine through bundled installation, there probably are some more adware or viruses. According to this, when you see the option among “recommended install” and “partial installation” – choose the second option. Do this every time you install some program - and your system will be much cleaner.
