What is Hanstrackr.com

Hanstrackr.com

Such programs as Hanstrackr.com are called adware: the program that is totally useless and does not have even one useful function. Moreover, adware causes significant damage to the PC in total, and the amount of harm rises proportionally to the time that the adware spent within the OS. Vast majority of advertising tools are created by cooperative of people. The rest of the hackers using them only replace the design of the webpage, in scarce cases making minor changes, and most of the times improving nothing at all, simply by purchasing a ready-made package for sale of adware in Dark Web. The root for the wide propagation of adware can be substantiated literally by a single phrase. Advertising software allows swindlers to get thousands of dollars daily being in absolute safety. Usually, the most flatulent schemes such as botnets, which include a lot of devices, attract the note of authorities, but minor games, in most cases stay unchallenged. The ground for this is that adware, as any legal program in our days, has well-defined functions, and prior to installing this program, the user pro forma passes the conditions for using it, by ticking the checkbox. Naturally, nobody cares about terms and conditions, and this permits fraudsters to pursue their own aims.

 

It's time to overview adware's actions and the consequences of infestation. Hanstrackr.com is distributed over the Net via easy method called bundling. The essence of the manner consists in combining several "viruses" into one pack with a single good utility, and placing it for gratis admittance. If the free program placed in the bundle is sufficiently in demand, adware will rapidly spread over the Net. Such way is plain and penny-ante, and allows hackers to attain several aims at once:

  • Hackers have protected themselves through way of extension, as users willingly install the viruses and admit the conditions of their employment.
  • Bundling does not claim lots of time and money: swindlers just had to place dangerous bundle in the Web once, and examine it occasionally to see if download is shut.
  • Each batch consists of 3-4 viruses, so, scammers do not need to build a separate depiction and a web-page for each of them.

The package's habitude is that victim cannot do anything with it, as the installation is the single option. In time of the installation the victim is shown a checkbox where he needs to pick from two installation variants - "reliable" and "advanced". The names of those ways can change somewhat depending upon the version, but the backbone is similar. Talking about good utilities, the appearance of such a window helps the user can choose the starting settings or remove unnecessary software units, but in the case of Hanstrackr.com such window is the possibility to defend the device from adware infection. If the customer simply clicks "OK", or deliberately opts the "recommended" technique, then all viruses from the bundle bypass the defense of his system.

Doings of the virus in the OS happen per the basic algorithm: installation, altering the browser settings, appending supplementary values to the registry, taking measures to protect against elimination, and starting to work. Just a few minutes after the installation, adware starts showing you ads in the browsers, in the form of pop-ups, banner ads, dangerous links and spam that occur in the very undesirable places. Ads appear on each website, even on the ones that newer exhibited any ads, and sometimes surpasses the navigation modules or significant info, like the video that you're about to see.
