The browser hijackers aren't made for fun, and every virus has precise goals. Unfortunately, the true purpose of this adware does not match with the declared ones. Typically, the specification of each harmful program declares that it is extremely useful. 99% of these software state to help in web-browsing. Observing the activity of friends in Facebook, assistance in the download of new games, movies or music and search for discounts, deals and sales online - that's the functions that 99% of advertising programs promise to implement. At first look it seems very nice, but if you think about it, you understand that all functions that are declared have long been imbued in the start functionality of any browser or social network. By the way, the goal of adware developers is to convince the user that their program performs something which is impossible to check. The "faster", "better" or "safer" web-browsing is a excellent sample of suchlike function, as these options are very vague and they're very to supervise. According to this, adware do not do anything, and just take up space in the computer's memory? No, they have one important task and it is to cheat you and to make money on ads.

 

It's hard to realize where it came from but today many people think that web-criminals create the unwanted programs with no logical reason. Viruses spoil your machine, prevent the work of certain software, and Internet-criminals are so excited about it that they want to spend their money and time to create stupid and annoying malware. In fact, any undesired program has specific function, and it is often associated with money. For instance, the indiscriminate showing of dozens of advertising on every page is not an accident. All these ads are displayed to earn money from clicks. Many users heard that advertisement in the Web is paid on the special system, called pay per click, which means that the advertiser pays for every transition from the ad to the website. Thus, the more hype adware displays you, the better is the possibility that you will be interested and pass the link. Even if you are not interested in hacker's ads - the click might still be performed, at least to close an unwanted intrusive ad. Each referral is worth the money, based on the nature of advertisement it can cost up to 5 cents and for some types of advertisement even more. Here we see that quantity defeats quality, as hackers make a lot of substandard advertising tools that spam with hype. Gullible customer can take the ads given by virus in earnest, and try to find something fine among adware propositions, doing dozens of clicks per day. Based on our information, the amount of computers, infected by Survey.7461.ws is counted on tens of thousands of customers, and if each of them is doing 5-10 clicks every day, the hacker's gain don't seem so insignificant.
