Maraukog.info

Hackers don't develop undesired programs just to annoy users, and every adware has strict aims. Unfortunately, the true purpose of Maraukog.info doesn't match with the stated ones. Usually, the description of adware declares that it is super useful. 99% of adware promise that they will support in web-browsing. Search for deals, discounts and sales on the Internet, assistance in the search for latest movies, music or games and performing some functions in Facebook - these are the features that 95% of adware declare to implement. At first glance it is really helpful, but if you think about it, you understand that all functions that are stated have long been present in the start feature set of any browser or social network. By the way, the task of hackers is to declare that their program performs a function that can't be examined.

This software performs a highly substantial function, - to allow hackers to receive thousands of dollars a day on gullible users.

 

We don't remember how it started but now some users think that hackers make the hazardous programs with no logical reason. It makes sense, didn't it? Hacker knows that out there somewhere is an operator that is trying to delete his dangerous program, and it feels really good!

It is weird that advertising program shows so many ads, but since you get it, the scheme looks really plain. All these ads are generated to earn money on referrals. Many people know that advertisement in Internet is paid on the special system, called pay per click. It means that the customer pays for each transition from the banner to the web-site. Thus, the more links adware is showing you, the bigger is the chance that you will take an interest in it and pass the link. Yet if user is not interested in adware's ads - the click may still be performed, at least to hide an uncomfortable annoying ad. The system doesn't want to know how the click was made, and scammers will receive their money both for the normal referral and for the incidental one. Although the amount isn’t big, do not neglect the number of victims! Trustful customer can decide that suchlike ads are trustworthy, and look for something fine among adware proposals, making hundreds of clicks daily. According to our data, the amount of PC's, infected by Maraukog.info is at least 30 000, and if all of them are making ten to twenty referrals daily, the hacker's earnings don't seem so low.

This technique functions because of user's trustfulness and the pernicious habit to click OK before you understand what is written above.
