What is Youmainpage.org

Youmainpage.org

The advertising tools aren't made for fun, and every adware has straight aims. However, the true aim of this advertising program does not match with the stated ones. Commonly, the depiction of adware declares that it is highly useful. Most of these tools promise to help in web-browsing. Tracking the activity of friends in Twitter, search for deals, sales and discounts in the Web and help in the download of recent music, movies or games - that's the features that most of adware state to carry out. It might seem really helpful, but if you think about it, you realize that all options that are stated have long been present in the default functionality of all browsers or social networks. Don't you wonder why are all adware descriptions so blurred? The "faster", "better" or "safer" web-surfing is a pure sample of suchlike functions, since these options are really vague and almost impossible to supervise. According to this, adware do not do anything, and is just consuming space on your hard drive? No, they got one significant function and it is to cheat the users and to make money on ads.

 

We don't remember when it had begun but now many users think that Internet-scammers develop the dangerous programs with no particular reason. It's pretty reasonable, yes? Web-scammer knows that out there somewhere is an operator that is trying to eliminate his harmful program, and it feels really good! It is a joke, of course. There are no useless viruses. It is difficult to guess why adware displays so many banners, but when you get it, the scheme looks really simple. All these ads are displayed to make money on referrals. Simply stated, payment of advertising services is made based on the number of clicks made on the advertisement, or the number of referrals from ad to the site. Thus, the more links advertising program shows you, the bigger is the chance that you will be interested and click on the link. Even if you don't take interest in any of the proposals - the click might still be performed, to hide an unwanted irritating banner. Advertisers don't want to know how the click was made, and hackers will obtain their money both for the true referral and for the incidental one. In this case we see how quantity defeats quality, as hackers develop thousands of trashy viruses that flood us with hype. Trustful customer can think that this advertising is trustworthy, and look for something interesting among adware offers, doing hundreds of clicks every day. According to our information, the quantity of computers, infected by Youmainpage.org is at least 50 000, and if each of them is making five to ten referrals each day, the swindler's profit don't seem so insignificant.

Advertising software is being spread in many methods: via infected web-sites on which the malware download may begin at each click, and via bundled installation. The "website" method may be simply avoided: you should only visit web-sites that are totally trustworthy, and appear on the first positions in the search results. Also, don't forget to listen to the notifications of your anti-viral tool and browser. Second method isn't related to websites: you should be aware of it only if you are installing some programs. Installation in bundles means that advertisement software is integrated into installation files of other tools. The installer is set to suggest you to install extra tools in addition to the one that you wanted.
