Adexchangecloud.com redirect virus was created in April of 2015 and it is slowly regaining its positions as one of the most visited domains in Spain. In this region, the domain is currently ranked in the 832nd position. Recently, we have detected similar redirection viruses like Adexchangegate.com and Liveadexchanger.com. All of them are harassing Internet surfers and preventing browsing activities to go without interruptions of objectionable ads.
Adexchangecloud.com virus annoys Internet surfers and infects computers with malware
Our team of researchers aimed to examine the potential new windows that victims of Adexchangecloud.com virus might have to be exposed to during their infection. Our investigation revealed that websites of scammers are going to be presented. One of them was VideoStripe, a service from 2015 which was determined to be advertised by adware parasites and provided poor-quality services on its own. In Trustpilot.com, dozens of users are waiting for their refunds for money that VideoStripe billed them for no reason whatsoever. It is one of those hoaxes that claim to provide access to a variety of different movies, but bill credit cards without authorization.
To no one’s surprise, we also were introduced to technical support scams, claiming that our operating system was severely damaged by malware and spyware parasites. Most of them looked deceptive straight away, but fraudulent messages that attempt to convince people to download a rogue version of MacKeeper are more easily regarded as legitimate.
When Appsecurityr.com presented us with a suggestion to clean junk files with MacKeeper, we did not miss the chance to download MacKeeper.pkg installer file (Antivirus scan). As expected, it was labeled as Riskware.Script.MacKeeper.enqqce, malware (ai score=80), Gen:Variant.Application.MAC.PazaCA.1 and Osx.Malware.Agent-6327782-0 by multiple security programs.
Via Adexchangecloud.com redirect virus we also managed to encounter “Add extension to leave” pop-up, presented from J8552s.trade. It prevented us from shutting down the tab and required us to install an unknown (almost certainly malicious) browser extension. If you happen to be in this situation, shut down your browser or open a new tab and remove the tab which is locked.

On one hand, it might be that the website you visited initiated the redirection to Adexchangecloud.com virus. On the other hand, we are more inclined to inform you about a possibility of being infected with an ad-based parasite. Have you recently installed any suspicious tools from unknown sources? A potentially unwanted program (PUP) or an adware (Adware explained) might have been installed together with it.
How shall malware infection be avoided?
If you download a lot of programs from the Internet, you should learn how to determine whether a software application is fit to be downloaded and utilized. This can be by taking a look at the developing company and finding out more about its reputation. Furthermore, check whether security researchers label the selected tools as potentially harmful.
For installation processes, it is crucial to select or advanced custom modes so the tool you selected would receive permissions to install more products. This condition should be noticed during one of the steps of installation. Certainly, you are advised to refuse these propositions and install only the program you selected.
However, many people agree to install packaged software and end up having multiple suspicious programs. You hope you won’t do the same unfortunate mistake. In addition to this, conditions for more software applications can be included in EULA or Privacy Policies that are also have to be read. If a program you selected described that your browsing will be filled with third-party advertisements, this might be a feature that should discourage you from installing the tool.
If you wish to be properly protected in the future, install Spyhunter. It will help you keep operating systems running smoothly. In addition to this, we also provide guidelines for a manual removal.
