Walermis is classified as a potentially unwanted program. Once installed, Walermis may generate the display of numerous advertisements and may compromise the user’s online safety. The PUP was most likely included in the download package of a free software product. The technique is dubbed bundling and may be avoided by opting for the advanced installer.
Walermis Distribution Technique
Bundling is often employed for financial reasons. It means that developers included Walermis in their product (for example, a media player or a file converter) to monetize a platform or to cover financial losses. Even though the method seems illegal, it is not. Walermis was mentioned in the EULA (End User License Agreement) but the user could not read it because he opted for the automatic installer. However, under the ‘advanced’ option he has the opportunity to deselect the PUP and stay safe.
Walermis may also be promoted for download on shareware/ freeware pages. Users should be lured by any promises given by the adware app since its disadvantages outweigh any positive features.
Potentially unwanted programs are not malicious. Nonetheless, they could become a gateway to further PC troubles if the user leaves them running in the background of the system. Keep in mind that the advertisements Walermis is likely to generate may redirect the user to attack’s pages. Such pages are employed for the distribution of malicious software.
