Users gladly download adware and become acquainted with all its features. To start the scheme, swindlers need to upload the malware bundle on few most popular file sharing services. Let's figure out this scheme in detail. Firstly, hackers need a nice program to create a bundle and name it by its name. This tool should be popular among users and free of charge. It might also be a hacked version of the paid software. The trickiest feature of a bundle is that you cannot unlock it and see what's inside. There is only one choice and it is installation.

If you don't remember that you installed Spirals New Tab, but remember that you downloaded other free programs - probably Spirals New Tab has entered your PC in this manner.



After entering the computer, hijacker begins to alter the settings of browser in order to display advertising most effectively. These changes are being applied to built-in browser pop-ups such as notifications about harmful content of the webpage. Except that, hijacker often switches the default search engine and new tab addresses to malicious website. The last touch is to append additional entries to the registry. In addition to the changes in registry, virus oftentimes alters the properties of browser shortcuts, so the undesired website is opened any time when you launch your browser. After finishing all these actions, adware continues to work. We've told you earlier but now it can be seen clearly that this adware initially wasn't decent. All advertising programs are aimed at completing one task: popping as much advertising as possible and, as a result, increase the amount of money that swindlers will get.

Finally we'll discuss the one of the strangest aspects for the user: what is the goal of the functioning of Spirals New Tab, and why scammers create dozens of these programs every day? The goal of any undesired utility's work is money, because fraudsters get plenty of them from each infested PC. Each ad's efficiency is being calculated in accordance to the amount of clicks that it received, so the way is easy: more infected PC's - more clicks - a lot of money. You should remember that intrusive advertisement commonly appears in the most inconvenient places and it can’t be hidden - there are many accidental clicks, which allows web-criminals to gain profit and create more viruses.
