Search.gg

The browser hijackers aren't made for fun, and each adware has precise aims. But, the real purpose of this advertising tool differs from those stated. Commonly, the depiction of adware declares that it is very useful. 99% of these programs state that they will help you to search for anything in the Internet. Performing some functions in Facebook, help in the search for new movies, games or music and search for deals, sales and discounts in the Web - that's the functions that the majority of advertising tools promise to implement. At first glance it is really helpful, but if you think about it, you realize that all options that are declared have long been imbued in the start functionality of all browsers or social networks. In fact, the goal of malware developers is to convince you that their program performs a function that can't be monitored. The "safer", "faster" or "better" web-surfing is a excellent sample of suchlike functions, because these options are very blurry and they're very to supervise. According to this, adware are completely useless, and is just consuming space on your hard drive? Not at all! Adware performs a very substantial task, - to allow Internet scammers to obtain from $1000 to $5000 a day from unsuspecting users.

Actually if you don't take interest in hacker's ads - the click might still be made, in order to close an unwanted intrusive ad. Each click is worth the money and depending on the sort of advertising it can cost up to 5 cents and in some cases even more. However the price isn’t big, do not forget about the number of clicks! Trusting man can take the ads shown by malware seriously, and look for something worthwhile among adware propositions, doing dozens of clicks every day. According to our information, the amount of victims of Search.gg is at least 50 000, and if each of them is making 5-10 referrals every day, the swindler's profit no longer seems so low.
