What is Search.festovshade.com

All tools have their tasks, and Search.festovshade.com is no exception. Unfortunately, the true aim of this advertising tool differs from those stated. Typically, the depiction of every undesired software declares that it is highly helpful. 95% of suchlike programs promise to support you to look for something in the Internet. Search for discounts, deals and sales on the Internet, performing some functions in Twitter and assistance in the search for new music, games or movies - these are the functions that the majority of advertising programs declare to carry out. The first thing you need to do if you want to download any software - to figure out, is it really helpful? Don't you wonder why the advantages of adware are so blurred? The "better", "safer" or "faster" search on the Internet is a pure example of suchlike function, as these options are very indistinct and they're very to trace. So, advertising programs do not do anything, and just take up space on your hard drive? No, they have one important function and it is to cheat the users and to make money on ads.

 

There is a belief in the Web that the majority of hazardous programs have no distinct goal. It makes sense, didn't it? Web-scammer thinks about you, trying to delete his malware, and it feels very good! In fact, all viruses perform some function, and it is, in most cases, associated with earnings. For instance, the incessant showing of suspicious ads on each website isn't an accident. All this advertisement is shown to make money on referrals. Simply said, promotional services are paid according to the amount of clicks made on the ad, or the amount of referrals from link to the web-page. All adware's actions are targeted at convincing you click on the link. Actually if user is not interested in adware's proposals - the click may still be performed, at least to hide an undesirable annoying banner. Advertisers don't care how the clicks were made, and scammers will obtain their payment both for the normal click and for the accidental one. Here we see how numbers overcome quality, as hackers make a lot of substandard programs that flood us with hype. Gullible operator can decide that suchlike advertising is trustworthy, and look for something worthwhile among adware propositions, making hundreds of referrals per day. According to our information, the quantity of PC's, infected by Search.festovshade.com is at least 20 000, and if all of them are doing one to five referrals daily, the hacker's gain no longer seems so low.

Advertisement software is being distributed in several techniques: with help of viral web-pages where the viral download may start after any click, and via bundled installation. The "website" way can be lightly avoided: you should visit only those sites which are completely reliable, and are on the first positions in browser. In addition, pay attention to the notifications that your browser and antivirus show. Second way is a little bit different: you should be aware of it only when you during the installation of software. This technique is so efficient because of user's credulity and the bad habit to click OK before you know what is written above. The installation helper is set to suggest you to install more tools instead of the needed one. All fields are already checked, and by clicking "OK" he gets at 3-4 tools in addition to the wanted one. Of course, all tools except the desired one will be pointless or even harmful. According to this, when you see the option among “safe install” and “install for practiced users” – pick the second variant. Remember about this each time you install some software - and your PC will be noticeably cleaner.
