What is Startupfraction.com

Startupfraction.com

Scammers don't make malicious programs just to annoy users, and each adware has exact tasks. Unfortunately, the true aim of Startupfraction.com is different from those stated. Usually, the description of the undesired tool states that it will be very helpful. 90% of suchlike tools declare that they can assist in the search for something in the Internet. Tracking the activity of friends in Facebook, search for sales, discounts and deals in the Web and assistance in the search for recent music, games or movies - these are the most prevalent functions of adware. At first look it seems really nice, but if you think about it, you understand that all options that are declared have long been present in the default feature set of any browser or social network. In fact, the aim of adware creators is to declare that their product performs something which is impossible to verify. The "faster", "better" or "safer" web-browsing is a brilliant sample of suchlike function, because these parameters are really vague and nearly impossible to observe. According to this, adware do not do anything, and just take up space in the computer's memory? No, they got one main function and it is to deceive you and to receive thousands of dollars from online advertising.

 

There is a perception in the Web that most of dangerous programs are created without any specific reason. It's really reasonable, yes? Malware developer thinks about you, trying to uninstall his malware, and the feeling is so good! Alright, I'm joking. There are no useless harmful programs. For example, the indiscriminate showing of suspicious ads on every website isn't accidental. All this advertisement is shown to make money from clicks. Simply said, advertising services are paid based on the amount of clicks made on the pop-up, or the number of clicks from pop-up to the website. All advertising program's efforts are aimed at convincing you pass the link. Yet if you don't take interest in any of the ads - the click may still be made, to hide an uncomfortable irritating ad. Any click costs money, depending on the nature of advertisement it can count up to 5 cents and in some cases even more. In this case we see that quantity beats quality, as swindlers develop thousands of substandard advertising tools that spam with intrusive ads. Trusting user can take the advertising given by virus in earnest, and try to find something entertaining among these propositions, making dozens of referrals daily. According to our information, the quantity of machines, infected by Startupfraction.com is counted on tens of thousands of customers, and if all of them are doing one to five clicks daily, the hacker's income don't seem so low.

We know two principal methods of advertisement tool spread: the placement on the hacked web-sites and bundled installation with free software. The "website" technique may be easily neutralized: you must visit only those sites which are completely secure, and are on the first pages in browser. Except that, pay attention to the warnings of your anti-viral tool and browser. To defend your PC from the penetration via the second method, you must attentively monitor the installation of any software. Bundled installation method is based on people's credulity and the harmful habit to click OK without reading. The installation tool is modified to offer you to get extra tools in addition to the needed one. All boxes are pre-checked, and by clicking "OK" he gets at 2-3 tools in addition to the needed one.
