What is Converter-search.com

Converter-search.com

Such tools as Converter-search.com are being considered advertising-oriented: the utility that is totally useless and doesn't have even one useful function. Frankly speaking, adware causes serious detriment to the computer as a whole, and the amount of damage grows further while the Converter-search.com stays within the OS. Most adware look like they were made by group of hackers. The rest of the hackers that use them just change the logo, in rare cases making small improvements, and more often not adding any changes, simply by purchasing a pre-set package for sale of adware at illegal websites. The root for the fast distribution of adware can be easily explained by one sentence. Advertising software permits fraudsters to get thousands of dollars every day being in total comfort. Naturally, the most flatulent frauds like botnets, which include hundreds of thousands of PC's, draw the note of authorities, but minor plans, in most cases go unpunished. It happens because unwanted utilities, like any licensed utility today, has well-defined functions, and before installing such program, the user technically accepts the stipulations for applying it, by checking the box. Of course, the list of purposes and license agreement is not read by anyone, and this directly benefits hackers.

 

Now let's inspect the actual actions of the virus and the red flags of contamination. Scammers distribute Converter-search.com through simple technique called bundling. The essence of this way consists in associating several dangerous tools into one pack with a single useful utility, and placing the bundle for free access. If the useful utility placed in the pack is sufficiently in demand, the viruses will promptly take over the Internet. Such way is simple and cheap, and permits hackers to attain many purposes simultaneously:

  • Hackers have protected themselves through method of extension, as victims on their own accord download the viruses and admit the conditions for their use.
  • Affiliate installation doesn't claim much efforts and funds: swindlers just must put malicious package in the Net once, and inspect it occasionally to ensure that download is still valid.
  • Each batch contains 4-5 unwanted utilities, and thanks to this, web-criminals do not need to come up with a certain depiction and a web-page for every single one of them.

The special feature of the bundle is that user can't affect it, as the installation is the only option. In time of the installation the victim is shown a dialogue box where he should select from two installation options - "recommended" and "advanced". The titles of those ways might vary slightly based on the version, though the backbone is near. Talking about useful utilities, the emergence of such a window means that you to pick the preset settings or delete unnecessary software modules, but in Converter-search.com's case this option is the only chance to protect the workstation from virus infestation. If the user just clicks "OK", or deliberately takes the "recommended" technique, then all the contents of the bundle get installed on his computer.
