Coupnoon Distribution Technique

What usually happens is users download adware alongside freeware/ shareware. The process is known as bundling and is used for financial reasons. This is how developers generate profit and cover financial losses. Bundled downloading may be avoided if opting for the custom installer becomes a habit. The advanced option gives the user a chance to deselect anything unwanted. Going for the automatic installation deprives the user of that choice.
Reading the EULA is another crucial step to be taken when downloading freeware/ shareware.

Coupnoon Behavior

When the user sees Ads brought by Coupnoon, he may have an adware app running in the background of his browser. Even though adware is not treated as malicious, it may cause certain problems such as:

  • Browser crashes and system slowdowns.
  • Internet speed issues.
  • Addition of tracking cookies.
  • Unwanted display of advertisements.

Tracking cookies, in particular, may become a gateway to third-party interference. The spyware component in adware gives access to third-party organizations to the user’s personally identifiable information. Thus, browsing histories, search queries, and IP addresses may be collected.
To put an end to the intrusive advertisements and restore the browser’s normal behavior, users are advised to remove the adware as soon as possible.
