lpcloudbox402.com pop-ups - How to remove?
What is lpcloudbox402.com pop-ups?
lpcloudbox402.com is a part of advertising network that displays various pup ups and inline ads with a help of semi-malicious browser plugins. Although adware itself is not illegal, showing misleading and outright dangerous ads is wrong and such programs are detected by anti-malware and antivirus.
For example, lpcloudbox402.com pop-ups might show messages that claim your Video player is outdated or that you have to update Flash or Java programs:
You are currently browsing the web with Firefox and your Video Player might be outdated.
Please update to the latest version for better performance
Download and Install Now.
Such messages are clearly misleading. What is even worse, such popups might be shown after you click on a completely unrelated link, which means that adware behind lpcloudbox402.com domain has hijacking properties.
There are a couple of other domains on the same advertisement network. lpcloudbox400.com, Lpcloudbox300.com, Lpcloudbox302.com, Lpcloudbox309.com, Lpcloudbox325.com, Lpcloudbox326.com, Lpcloudbox328.com, Lpcloudbox329.com Lpcloudbox404.com, Lpcloudbox408.com, Lpcloudbox409.com, Lpcloudbox410.com, Lpcloudbox411.com, Lpcloudbox412.com, Lpcloudbox413.com, Lpcloudbox414.com, Lpcloudbox415.com, Lpcloudbox416.com and Lpcloudbox30.com are known to be used to display malicious advertisements. This network is related to lpcloudsvr one.
