What is WorldofNotes

WorldofNotes

Any tool has its aim, and this adware isn't an exception. Unfortunately, the true aim of WorldofNotes does not match with the declared ones. Usually, the depiction of every malicious software promises that it is highly useful. 90% of adware state to assist in the search for goods or information in the Internet. Tracking the activity of friends in Twitter, assistance in the finding of new games, music or movies and search for deals, discounts and sales online - these are the features that 90% of adware promise to accomplish. The primary thing you should do if you're going to download any program - to figure out, is it really helpful? Haven't you thought about why the functions of adware are so blurred? The "better", "faster" or "safer" web-browsing is a brilliant example of suchlike features, as these options are really vague and nearly impossible to observe. According to this, advertising software do not do anything, and just take up space in the machine's memory? Not at all! They perform a highly significant task, - to help Internet scammers to obtain thousands of dollars per day from gullible users.

 

Inexperienced users believe that almost all viruses have no particular task. Hazardous programs spoil your machine, intervene with the work of certain software, and hackers are so excited about it that they are willing to spend many hours, creating irritating adware. You should remember that any undesired program performs some feature, and it is often associated with profit. It is hard to guess why adware generates so much banners, but when you realize it, the scheme appears pretty simple. All these ads are shown to obtain money on clicks. Simply stated, defrayment of promotional services is made based on the number of clicks made on the ad, or the number of referrals from banner to the site. All adware's actions are targeted at convincing you click on the link. Even if user is not interested in hacker's ads - the click might still be made, at least to hide an unwanted irritating banner. Advertisers don't care how the clicks were made, and online-criminals will receive their payment both for the decent click and for the unwanted one. Despite this reward isn’t large, do not forget about the number of victims! Trustful operator can think that suchlike advertising is trustworthy, and look for something interesting among these propositions, making dozens of referrals each day. Based on our information, the quantity of PC's, infected by WorldofNotes is at least 30 000, and if each of them is doing 5-10 referrals daily, the fraudster's profit no longer seems so low.

Hackers use two main methods of adware distribution: the deployment on the infected web-sites and installation in bundles with good software. The "website" technique might be easily neutralized: you should visit only those websites which are totally safe, and are on the first pages in browser. Also, don't forget to listen to the notifications that your browser and antivirus display. To shield your system from the infection via the second technique, you need to carefully supervise the installation of any software. Bundled installation is simple: advertising program is integrated into installers of useful tools. You install some program and in one of the windows during the process emerges a suggestion to download some additional programs. In some variants you just cannot decline the process, and in some - there's no sign of extraneous installation. You should understand that: if WorldofNotes had entered your computer through bundled installation, there probably are some more advertisement programs or viruses. So, if you see the choice between “safe installation” and “partial installation” – pick the second variant. This will allow you to pick what tool you are going to install and what you don’t.
