About InternetStudio adware

It works as a browser add-on that can be added to all most popular web browsers including Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and even Safari. This means Apple users can get infected as well.

Even though InternetStudio is described as a useful application that will help you to save both your time and money when shopping online by providing you with various links coupons and deals, this is not true. You won’t save your time or money due to this application because those ads come in an annoying manner of web advertisements. They appear completely randomly, from time to time, so it’s really disturbing.

Those ads can be displayed in all kinds of forms, including pop-up, pop-under, in-text, banner or contextual advertisements. A new tab or even window with advertisements can opened on your web browser at any time. They usually appear on e-commerce websites, such as eBay or Amazon and offer you to purchase some particular goods at an appealing price rate. Those offers can look really attractive but don’t fall for that – usually they are fake, it’s just a trick to win your attention and make you click on one of those advertisements. And we don’t recommend to do that.

If it happens so that you click on one of those ads, you will be immediately redirected to other websites that may be owned by cyber criminals, such as hackers or scammers. This way your computer can get infected with other viruses or you can even get scammed and lose your hard earned money. InternetStudio can be described as an advertising network for cyber criminals. Since they are banned from all legitimate advertising networks, they use adware like this to promote their products and drive some traffic to their websites. This being said, if you keep InternetStudio installed on your computer, cyber criminals can reach you right on your web browser on a daily basis and that’s really dangerous.

Another unwanted attribute of InternetStudio is data collection. Once installed, it will collect your personal information, such as browsing history, search queries, top visited sites, your IP and email addresses. This information is used for marketing purposes. The third parties adjust those advertisements according to the collected data and make them even more relevant and attractive to users this way, so chances that you will click on one of those ads rise. And that’s the main goal of InternetStudio because its creators get paid for every click you make. They also generate web traffic and collect sales leads.

Distribution Methods of InternetStudio

You can get infected with InternetStudio simply by downloading and installing free software from unreliable websites. For instance, if you download and install some media player, PDF generator or other free, light-weighted and insignificant application, there is a chance that InternetStudio will be downloaded and installed alongside, without you even being aware of that. That’s why you need to be really attentive during the installation of freebies.

Never skip any steps (don’t just click ‘next’ and ‘agree’ buttons all the time without reading all information first) and always opt out for a custom or advanced install mode if possible. This will allow you to see all available options and make changes. Look for various check boxes that can be already checked for you. Reading all terms and conditions would be considered wise as well. In case it’s too late and your computer is already infected with InternetStudio or any other malware – take needed actions and eliminate it, otherwise you can face some unwanted consequences.
