What is Cloudnet. Removal reasons and methods

Have you seen the annoying advertising banners on the Internet? Surely you did, because Internet can’t exist without ads recent years, but what were these ads? Were they popping up each second, covering the entire screen or the important elements of the site which you're now viewing? Are they leading to MLM sites, strange and useless webpages that offer you tons of third-rate goods, "dating" sites, online-casinos or any other pages of this kind? If they do, it's very possible that your system is contaminated by adware. In this paper we'll explain you how adware works and what’s the difference between trustworthy advertising and spam that is displayed by Cloudnet.

Cloudnet is an adware that was made to earn money to web-scammers and negative browsing experience - to other users. Cloudnet might have entered the machine via bundled installation scheme, or you downloaded it by yourself. Bundled installation is the best way for web-criminals to infect the user’s computer not just because of written above features but also because of maximized safety. To make things work, hackers upload the adware bundle on few most visited file hosting providers. Now we will tell you how it works. Firstly, scammers have to find the useful software to put it in a bundle and use its name. The better it is the more users will install the bundle. It might just be a cracked version of the licensed software. The most important quality of a package is that you can't unlock it and see the content. The only available action is the installation. Thus, swindlers trick the user, coercing him to download adware, while he thinks he's getting useful program. Above was the answer why advertising program's victims don't remember installing it and are surprised that this tool exists on their computers.



After penetrating the PC, adware starts to vary the settings of browser, trying to show ads most efficiently. Such changes generally involve pop-up windows and alerts about the dangerous files and websites. After that Cloudnet alters the search engine and homepage, superseding the default addresses with the URL of swindler's webpage. The last touch is the addition of dangerous strings to the registry. According to these measures, Cloudnet secures itself from deletion, and keeps popping up ads even if customer resets the browser settings. The actions, described above are the stages of preparation for adware's job. When they're done adware is ready to action. We have told you before but now it can be seen for sure that Cloudnet initially was a harmful utility. All browser hijackers are aimed at achieving one goal: showing as many ads as possible and, as a result, receiving the maximum amount of money.

Most of users want to know the answer to one question: what is the goal of the work of Cloudnet, and why fraudsters develop thousands of these utilities every month? It's pretty easy to answer this question: hackers receive a pure benefit for each pop-up shown to you. Every time you click on the ads shown by Cloudnet, you literally promote the pages you are switching to, and make views and clicks, by the quantity of which advertising is paid for. You should remember that obsessive ads usually emerge on the most unexpected places and it cannot be hidden so there are many random clicks that allow swindlers to gain benefit and develop more adware.
