What is Green5news.net

Green5news.net

The advertising programs aren't made for fun, and every adware has strict tasks. However, the true aim of this adware doesn't coincide with the declared ones. Usually, the depiction of every malicious software declares that it is highly helpful. 95% of adware promise to assist in the search for something on the Internet. Tracking the activity of friends in social networks, search for sales, deals and discounts online and help in the download of latest music, movies or games - these are the functions that most of adware declare to implement. The most important thing you have to do if you want to download some software - to figure out, is it really useful? Don't you wonder why are all adware descriptions so blurred? The "safer", "faster" or "better" web-surfing is a brilliant example of suchlike functions, since these parameters are very blurry and they're very to supervise. Does this mean that adware do not do anything, and just take up space on your hard drive? No, they got one significant task and it is to cheat you and to obtain thousands of dollars from online advertising.

 

We don't remember where it came from but now many users think that web-scammers make the undesired programs with no logical reason. Hazardous programs spoil your system, intervene with the functions of certain programs, and web-criminals are so excited about it that they are willing to spend their money and time to create silly and irritating viruses. You must remember that all viruses have specific function, and this function helps scammers to obtain money. For example, the indiscriminate showing of dozens of advertising on each website isn't an accident. All these ads are shown to make money from referrals. Simply said, defrayal of promotional services is made according to the amount of clicks made on the pop-up, or the quantity of clicks from pop-up to the website. All advertising software's efforts are aimed at persuading you click on the link. Even if you don't take interest in hacker's suggestions - you can click on advertising, to hide an undesirable intrusive ad. Advertisers don't want to know how the click was made, and swindlers will obtain their reward both for the decent referral and for the incidental one. In this case we see how quantity overcomes quality, as scammers create thousands of trashy programs that spam with hype. Trusting operator can decide that these ads are good, and try to find something entertaining among these propositions, making tens of referrals every day. Based on our information, the number of PC's, infected by Green5news.net is at least 40 000, and if each of them is doing 5-10 referrals each day, the fraudster's earnings don't seem so insignificant.

Except that, your browser and anti-virus program will display the warning, if the website is unreliable.
