What Is Medievable.com? Are These Ads Dangerous?
Medievable.com ads are annoying browser redirects that interrupt regular browsing in order to persuade users to agree to receive push notifications. Typically, browser push notifications enable users to receive fresh content by certain websites in the form of browser pop-ups and desktop notifications.
However, there is a nasty trend that fraudsters configure sites like Medievable.com to misuse this browser functionality and start displaying various deceptive offers that generate revenue for the operators.
In the event that Medievable.com receives permission to generate browser notifications, it will start delivering annoying pop-up ads both in the browser and on the desktop. There is no guarantee that the website will generate ads related to trustworthy sites only. You may be presented with malicious ads as well. A visit to a hacked website can lead to some serious security issues such as data theft and malware intrusion.
The spread of PUPs is usually realized via third-party applications that are promoted as useful tools. These apps come with extras or the so-called “special offers” in their installers. The tricky part is that their installers rarely disclose any details about featured extra apps and this way trick users into giving permission for their installation. Happily, the presence of added PUPs could sometimes be revealed by the information presented in the Advanced/Custom configuration option. So we recommend that you select it every time you see it in an app installer.
Since the unwanted appearance of all those annoying Medievable.com ads in the browser may happen as a result of a potentially undesired program that is running on the computer, it is also likely that other types of online ads such as pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, etc. will load in the browser as well.
Quite disturbing is the fact that PUPs that generate browser redirect ads like Medievable.com are often designed to unnoticeably activate different tracking technologies to start spying on users’ online activities. Collected data will be sent to remote servers and then misused by PUP’s owners.
So is highly recommendable that you check the security of your system and ensure that no suspicious or potentially harmful files are running on it.
