  • Scammers build a software bundle gathered of 3-4 suspicious tools and one decent program. Naturally, the installer is named after a reliable tool so that customers wanted to install it.
  • The bundle gets published on file-sharing websites for everyone to access.
  • If a victim downloads the bundle and initiates it, the bundle offers installing the whole content of the bundle, including the hazardous tools. Sometimes, there is no choice at all, as all options besides “agree” are inactive and can't be picked.
