What is Go.zipcruncher.com

Go.zipcruncher.com

Such viruses as Go.zipcruncher.com are called adware: the software that is totally useless and does not have a single useful function. Frankly speaking, advertising tools cause significant detriment to the OS generally, and that damage rises more and more while the adware stays inside the computer. Vast majority of adware look like they were created by cooperative of persons. Other swindlers that use them simply switch the appearance of the program, in scarce cases adding small improvements, and most of the times doing nothing at all, just buying a pre-set package for distribution of the advertising tool in Dark Web. The root for the wide distribution of adware can be explained literally by one sentence. adware allows scammers to earn hundreds of dollars every day while staying in complete comfort. Of course, the most ambitious schemes like botnets, including myriads of computers, attract the attention of intelligence agencies, but minor plans often stay unpunished. It happens because advertising utilities, as each licensed program nowadays, has specified purpose, and prior to installing such utility, the customer pro forma accepts the conditions for its usage, by checking the box. Usually, the list of functions and license agreement is not read by anyone, and this allows web-criminals to pursue their own aims.

 

It's time to look at virus' actions and the fruits of infection. Swindlers distribute Go.zipcruncher.com using plain manner known as bundling. The core of the method consists in associating 4-5 "viruses" in one batch with a single helpful utility, and placing it for gratis admittance. If the licensed software placed in the package is really useful, the viruses will rapidly spread over the Net. Such manner is easy and inexpensive, and allows fraudsters to achieve several goals at once:

  • Each bundle includes 3-4 viruses, so, hackers don't need to build a separate description and a website for every single one of them.
  • Hackers have secured themselves by the manner of distribution, as users voluntarily install the viruses and admit the conditions for their applying.
  • Bundled installation doesn't take much time and facilities: web-criminals simply must place perilous files on the well-known website once, and betweentimes examine it to be sure that download is still valid.

The bundle's habitude is that user cannot affect it except for the installation. When a customer tries to install Go.zipcruncher.com, a window appears with a choice among two ways of installation. The titles of those ways might change somewhat based on the version, but the substance is near. Talking about licensed programs, the appearance of this window assists you to choose the starting settings or delete useless applications, but in the case of Go.zipcruncher.com this option is the possibility to protect your device from virus invasion. If the customer simply skips the window, or willfully chooses the "reliable" method, then everything that's in the package get installed on his device.
