For example, the incessant showing of annoying advertising on each website is not accidental. All these ads are displayed to obtain money on referrals. Simply stated, promotional services are paid based on the quantity of clicks made on the banner, or the number of clicks from ad to the website. So, the more ads adware shows you, the bigger is the possibility that you will be interested and pass the link. Even if you are not interested in any of the offers - the click may still be performed, in order to close an inconvenient intrusive ad. Advertisers don't care how the clicks were made, and swindlers will get their payment both for the normal referral and for the random one. However this payment isn’t big, do not forget about the amount of clicks! Confiding operator can decide that these ads are good, and try to find something fine among adware proposals, doing tens of clicks each day. According to our data, the amount of computers, infected by Fordingw.com is at least 20 000, and if each of them is doing 5-10 clicks daily, the fraudster's income don't seem so low.
