IceLotto(.)org – How It Is Spread?

IceLotto(.)org is spread with third-party installers. Unknowingly, you may install an adware program related to the site from bundle packages or freeware installers. Inside such packs, more components can be selected for installation by default. Preventing this is possible with you unchecking the components from a Custom or an Advanced setting during installation.

IceLotto(.)org might also be spread with visiting other websites or from clicking on adverts, specifically pop-ups. That way the adware could get inside your computer fairly easy. Affected browsers are mainly Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari.

IceLotto(.)org – More Information

IceLotto(.)org is one of the websites of an adware platform of the same name. The website is about gambling. If you got it installed or just visit the site, you would see advertisements and pop-ups. Other sites can generate them as well.

IceLotto(.)org is filled with online games, connected to gambling. These seem to run on Flash. Existing vulnerabilities could be found in them because of that. You can get redirected from ads and links across the sites. Here’s an example of a pop-up ad on the IceLotto(.)org site:

Users report other sites that redirected them and they ended up on the IceLotto platform. The main two such sites are:

  • sakura.ne(.)jp
  • affiliaxe(.)com

If you have an application which is associated to the adware, you might start seeing adverts and message boxes occurring on all your browser programs. An extension or an add-on related to the IceLotto platform might be added to your browsers. It can spread more redirects and ads. The ads might have these messages written inside them:

  • Ads by IceLotto(.)org
  • Advertisement by IceLotto(.)org
  • Ad by IceLotto(.)org
  • Advert from IceLotto(.)org
  • Powered by IceLotto(.)org
  • Brought to you by IceLotto(.)org

The redirects generated from the site could also lead and be associated with IceLotto(.)com. The platform and services of both IceLotto sites are making money for their respective owners. All redirects might be tied to a pay-per-click scheme. You may see all kinds of advertisements, sponsored by affiliates of the adware owners. The advertising content could be in the shape of pop-unders, pop-ups, banners, in-text-links, full page, interstitial or transitional adverts.
