What is Subwaysco.com

Subwaysco.com

The advertising programs aren't made for fun, and each virus has strict goals. However, the true task of Subwaysco.com is different from those declared. Commonly, the depiction of each harmful tool declares that it is very useful. 99% of these programs state that they will help in web-browsing. Help in the search for latest music, movies or games, search for discounts, sales and deals online and tracking the activity of friends in social networks - that's the features that 99% of adware promise to accomplish. The most important thing you need to do when you're about to install any software - to think, is it really helpful? How do you think, why are all adware descriptions so blurred? The "faster", "better" or "safer" web-surfing is a excellent example of suchlike function, because these parameters are really blurry and nearly impossible to observe. So, advertising programs are completely useless, and is just consuming space in the computer's memory? Not at all! This software performs a very substantial task, - to help Internet scammers to obtain thousands of dollars a day on trustful users.

 

We don't remember how it had begun but now there is an opinion that web-fraudsters make the harmful programs with no logical reason. Viruses retard the PC, prevent the functions of good programs, and web-fraudsters are so excited about it that they want to spend their time and money to create silly and irritating adware. It's a joke, of course. The adware always have their task, and even if the aim isn't clear - you'll understand when it will be achieved. It is weird that advertising program shows so many ads, but since you get it, it looks pretty simple. All these ads are shown to make money from referrals. Simply stated, promotional services are paid based on the amount of clicks done on the advertisement, or the amount of referrals from banner to the website. All adware's actions are targeted at persuading you pass the link. Actually if you don't take interest in adware's ads - you may click on advertising, in order to hide an inconvenient annoying banner. Advertisers don't care how the clicks were done, and scammers will receive their payment both for the true click and for the random one. However the reward isn’t big, do not forget about the amount of infected computers! Trustful user can decide that these ads are good, and look for something fine among these propositions, making tens of referrals daily. Based on our data, the amount of victims of Subwaysco.com is at least 40 000, and if all of them are making ten to twenty referrals daily, the swindler's earnings no longer seems so insignificant.

Advertising tools are being distributed in several techniques: via infected web-sites on which the undesired download may start after each click, and via bundled installation. Harmful web-pages are very easy to identify: they appear on the last positions in search, and they intrusively suggest to download something. Except that, the browser and anti-viral tool will display you warning, if the web-site is not trustworthy. Second method is a little bit different: you have to be aware of it only if you install some programs. Bundled installation method is based on people's trustfulness and the bad habit to click OK without reading. You install some software and in one of the windows during the process appears an offer to download some extra programs. In many variants you just can't uncheck the boxes, and in some - there's no sign of additional programs. Most likely, all tools except the desired one will be trashy or even hazardous. So, when you see the option among “recommended installation” and “partial installation” – choose the second option. Do this every time you install something - and your machine will be noticeably cleaner.
