How did Mobi.Trkerrr.net virus install
Mobi.Trkerrr.net pop-up redirect cannot install on its own, it has to be brought by some malicious software. Usually, it is adware and PUPs (potentially unwanted programs) which have their own sneaky ways to invade someone’s system without a notice and fairly legal. You may have heard about their most popular spreading technique – bundling. There is plenty of software that is being spread via vendors and shareware/freeware distributing websites, like download.com. These kinds of websites allow people to quickly install popular programs for free but unfortunately, there is nothing completely free and gullible users pay a different price.
With these popular programs, there are malware and additional unwanted apps that get compiled together and unaware people end up installing viruses, which pay well for the distributors, without even having a clue or being warned about it. Mobi.Trkerrr.net’s adware is hiding as an additional program in the setup wizard that will get installed by the default unless the victim chooses otherwise. For this reason, we do not advise people to download anything from the third party sites and to also be very alert and choose Custom setup where you can pick what apps are going to be installed into your PC. Take a look at What happens if you install top 10 download.com apps.
