Adserv.site redirect virus transfers users to all types of third-party websites. In comparison, it functions identically to infections like Touch.peak-serving.com and Iupot.com. All of these threats promote suspicious websites that will attempt to deceive you into downloading/purchasing low-quality programs or other goods.
We noticed that products by Solvusoft can be one of the destination links of Adserv.site redirection. Our team of researchers has already discussed one of Solvusoft’s programs: WinThruster and it was labeled as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Therefore, wasting money on this application is unnecessary.
Adserv.site redirect virus introduces many fraudulent websites
Adserv.site malware infection is the most annoying for people from Denmark, South Africa, Iraq, United States and Spain. Quite a colorful variety of different cultures that are being forced to sit through repetitive redirection. This process occurs without any warnings and users’ active windows unexpectedly shift from one domain to another. The final website displayed would normally show a technical support scam, fake survey or lottery, offer to update drivers/software/browser, or a different fraudulent content (Spam, deceptive practices, and scams).
We also noticed that Adserv.site website is hosted on the same IP address as many websites of scammers. For instance, Financialfreedomformula.biz will probably lure you with promises of easy-money, but by being gullible you might actually lose cash through such fraudulent services (Money-making scams). In one of the domains, hosted on the suspicious IP, we noticed a service that offered women to purchase tasers, stun guns, mace and pepper sprays. Infection also promotes installations of suspicious security tools that will presumably show false positives and urge you to waste money on full versions. Tools like PCBooster or MacShiny might be described as the best tools to purchase, but you should not believe these false statements.
Fraudulent messages from Adserv.site suspicious domain can be triggered due to two main reasons The first one indicates that your browsing skills are poor and you should stop visiting little-known websites or the ones that provide shady services. Redirection to Adserv.site website might be taking place because your visited domains are triggered it. However, the reason might also be the fact that your operating system is invaded by malware samples (Examples of the Most Damaging Malware). The most presumably infection: an adware parasite. These threats generate huge amounts of suspicious content.
Because an adware has invaded you computer, it is possible that your online activity will be constantly tracked. Your visited websites, bookmarks, interactions with ads, recent search queries will be gathered by an adware with spyware capabilities. In some cases, users’ personally-identifiable information is put in jeopardy. Credentials to various accounts could also be stolen by vicious third-parties, aiming to exploit this data for identity theft or other cyber crimes.
