What is Video Abductor

Video Abductor

The advertising tools aren't made for fun, and every virus has strict goals. Unfortunately, if you think that the description of Video Abductor is really useful - you're wrong. Usually, the description of adware declares that it will be extremely useful. 90% of advertising programs declare that they will help in web-browsing. Search for discounts, sales and deals in the Web, performing some functions in social networks and help in the search for latest music, games or movies - that's the most common features of advertising programs. The first thing you should do when you want to download some program - to take thought, is it really useful? In fact, the goal of hackers is to state that their software performs a function that can't be monitored. The "faster", "safer" or "better" web-surfing is a pure example of suchlike function, as these options are very blurry and they're very to observe. According to this, adware are completely useless, and just take up space in the machine's memory? No, they have one significant task and it is to deceive the users and to make money on ads.

 

It's hard to understand where it came from but today some people think that hackers develop the viruses with no particular reason. It's pretty reasonable, yes? Hacker thinks about you, trying to delete his virus, and the feeling is really good! Actually, each undesired program has some feature, and this feature helps swindlers to obtain money. For example, the incessant display of suspicious advertising on every page isn't an accident. All these ads are generated to make money from referrals. Simply said, advertising services are paid based on the amount of clicks made on the advertisement, or the quantity of referrals from link to the site. So, the more links adware displays you, the bigger is the chance that you will take an interest in it and pass the link. Actually if user is not interested in adware's propositions - you will click on the link, at least in order to close an uncomfortable irritating banner. Each referral is worth the money and depending on the type of advertisement it can count up to 5 cents and sometimes even more. In this case we see how quantity defeats quality, as scammers develop thousands of low quality programs that spam with hype. Gullible operator can decide that this advertisement is trustworthy, and search for something entertaining among these proposals, doing dozens of clicks daily. Big AV-software vendors and tech-support communities receive thousands of complaints on Video Abductor, so swindlers are doing pretty good profit on it.

Hackers use two primary methods of adware distribution: the placing on the hacked websites and installation in bundles with good programs. The "website" way can be simply neutralized: you should only visit websites which are completely secure, and appear on the first positions in the search results. Besides that, your browser and anti-viral tool will display you warning, if the web-site is unreliable. To shield your PC from the infection via the bundled installation method, you must carefully observe the installation of any software. Installation in bundles means that adware is integrated into installation files of other tools. User installs some program and the pop-up window during installation appears an offer to download some additional tools. All boxes are pre-checked, and by clicking "OK" he gets at least three tools instead of one. Most likely, all programs except the wanted one will be pointless or even hazardous. So, if you see the choice between “safe installation” and “partial installation” – pick the second variant. Keep this in mind each time you install something - and your machine will be noticeably cleaner.
