Loptelink.pro Ads – Spread and Impact

There is a vast number of different bogus websites that are lurking accross web. Recent examples of such are Gestyy.com, Tesimpathstrivin.info and Mp3pro.xyz hijacker. More often than not these webites hijack trustworthy browsers after a user installs unintentionally a potentially unwanted program on the computer operating system (Windows/Mac).
Unfortunately, there are various free programs across the web that feature hidden extras in their installers. The installers of such apps are set to install undesired apps by default. The tricky part is that the installers do not openly ask users if they want to install present extras or prefer to skip their installation and continue with the installation of the main program. Free and useful apps like media players, readers, drivers, etc. may have corrupted installers.
To prevent this side effect and keep potentially unwanted programs (adware, browser hijackers, browser extensions, etc.) away from computer systems, users need to check carefully the details that are presented on each step of the installer. The Advanced/Custom configuration step should be selected whenever it is available.
