Trck.consertist.com redirect virus is hoping to infect you with more malware
It is difficult to keep track of all infections that have been distributed via fake Flash Player updates. These fraudulent messages have been noticed both by users of Android devices (Invisible Man malware was distributed) and computer operating systems. For the latter computers, pop-ups like Domflash.ru can deliver Trojans.
Our investigation revealed that Consertist.com can introduce a message from Eventfulmac.com which urges users to get the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. The downloaded file is Player.dmg and 20 out of 59 scanners detected it as suspicious/malicious (Player.dmg scan).
PUP.Optional.AdLoad or TrojanDownloader:Win32/AdLoad are the two main issues that can be brought into operating systems after a Trck.consertist.com redirect virus tricks you into downloading a rogue tool. Security researchers have indicated Adload as an advertisement bombarder which means that it will act as an adware infection. Our analysis provided similar exact results: Adware.MAC.Adload.J, Osx.Malware.Agent-6346324-0.
Also, Trck.consertist.com redirect virus introduced us to fake surveys, propositions for free stuff and “awesome gifts of the day”. None of these propositions turned out to be no good as in the end, we were always transferred to completely unrelated websites.
If you have downloaded material from this website or rather the domains it transfers to, you should decide to run a scan with a reliable anti-malware tool like Reimage. It will show you whether more malware parasites have slithered inside.
The content you see after Consertist.com redirect takes place will probably be extracted from such ad-networks like AdCash and Adf.ly. As usual, offers from Propeller Ads Media are also involved with this suspicious ad-server. In addition to this, propositions from sh.st and Adk2 are also going to be one of the messages to notice after this infection occurs.
If fraudulent messages through Trck.consertist.com redirects are noticed, it is very possible that your operating system is already compromised by adware parasites. Please run a scan to find out more and be sure that your device is not threatened.
How to avoid malware infections?
There are many more ways to compromise your computer device. For instance, drive-by downloads mean that users can automatically receive malicious payloads or their downloaders. This should certainly discourage you from downloading stuff from unknown domains or pop-ups. Malware can reach operating systems via email letters as well. This means that malicious executables can be included as attachments.
Please do not download attachments unless you are absolutely certain that they are reliable. If a certain authority or organization is allegedly attempting to contact you, check whether the email address is the official one. Fake email letters very frequently include a lot of mistakes, but nowadays, hackers are smarter and their generated messages are written quite professionally. Also, do not download files that people from your list of friends send you via Facebook. In addition to this, some viruses are made to tag random people and urge them to open a malicious file.
