How do you Get Adware?
There are two different ways the adware gets into your system.
- You download a freeware or shareware on your system and it installs adware without your consent while the adware launches malicious content to infect the system.
- When you visit a website assuming it to be a trusted site, however, it can be infected with adware. The adware exploits the vulnerability of the website and delivers a drive-by-download which then collects your confidential information. It can redirect you to another malware-laden websites to display more advertisements in the browser.
