Ads on the Web did go intrusive recent time, and we all have almost got used to it. Pop-ups are all around – it doesn't matter what is the webpage you are on - banners are there. There was a time when you saw a few ads each day, and today there is that much every minute. Businesspersons did finally find out that the Internet is the great land to bring in some new customers, and hackers started their work. They have developed adware to break into your system and make it showing you unwanted, fraud pop-ups. One of suchlike utilities simply took over your OS, and it is known as Yowwinnerprize.com. Unreliable banners are not for selling things – they are just a bait for confiding customers. If you click on one of those ads, you’ll be on a useless site, where you cannot get anything real. Commonly, there is nothing at all, just a fake prize suggestion or an offer to get a suspicious toll-free software, which will drive your computer crazy, and provide you with even more ads.

What is Yowwinnerprize.com

 

We're talking about a tool, designed with the simple purpose: to show you pop-ups. We can't even call it a full-fledged tool, since it’s just an elementary piece of code, capable of switching the browser settings and allowing customers apply it in hackers favor. Here is a detailed description of the common infection process:

  • The first process, that Yowwinnerprize.com performs after it gets into the system, is getting control over your browser. It modifies the default homepage and search engine and replaces them with the hackers' unreliable site. After that you will not get relevant search results – you will get what fraudsters are willing to show you.
  • During the installation of adware, you are forced to choose between "good" way and the installation for expert customers. The first method is pre-selected, and sometimes you cannot even pick the second one, as it’s not available. By marking the proposed manner customer agrees to install every single hazardous piece of software from the package, and the "experienced" option lets you decide the needed program and decline the rest.
  • If you chosed the "experienced" option and rejected Yowwinnerprize.com, you would not start to read this article. Based on that, we conclude that you have not noticed that checkbox. In your case, adware was installed and began working. For example, the advertising program gets uploaded to a torrent-tracker, in a bundle with several other unwanted utilities. It patiently waits for a victim to see it – a victim that doesn't care to inspect the info during the installation and wants to get over the installation as soon as possible. Of course, the victim doesn't think he's installing Yowwinnerprize.com unwanted utility – there is a good tool in a bundle. It's the one that people want, but along with it, they get a bunch of useless stuff in addition.
  • The main adware’s task is done after it changes your browser settings, so it simply needs to develop the security mechanisms. It inserts new strings into the system registry and makes scheduled tasks to not let you switch browser settings.

That’s what adware infection looks like. Since the last step, the adware program is needless, as all main job, including the showing of advertisement, gets done by hackers' webpage. Casually the webpage looks like Google, Yahoo or Bing, but the links that you get from it are fake. Fraudsters can use a unpaid function, called Google Custom Search Engine to develop their search engine, but in this case, its basic feature is to limit the search area to a few webpages. Google CSE is used to show you fraud search results and make users think that they are real.
