Find.localstrike.net Distribution Technique

The website may have been downloaded alongside a free software product available on legitimate shareware pages. The method is known as bundling and is not new to third party developers and online advertisers. Bundling may be avoided by executing custom installation and deselecting additional software.

The user may have triggered the software by opening a corrupted link or clicking a suspicious ad. Furthermore, the website may seem legitimate to inexperienced users that may decide to use any of its services, thus compromising both their browsers and systems.

Find.localstrike.net also provides a privacy statement and an uninstallation page. However, the revealed information does not make it trustworthy. If the user encounters the domain while browsing online, he is advised to ignore it and avoid clicking the ads displayed on the website. Clicking them may cause unsafe browser redirects to pages loaded with spyware and viruses.

Even though the website provides an uninstallation guide, running a full system scan is still recommended. As already mentioned, both ad-supported software and browser hijackers may alter the system’s default settings to make manual removal defiant.
