Mizdok.com – Spread Techniques
As we mentioned, the appearance of Mizdok.com in your preferred web browser may be caused by both visits of any other suspicious websites or unnoticed installation of a potentially undesired program. Either way, you should know that both the affected browser and system need to be secured in a proper way as the redirect and its associated files may let hackers access your device without your knowledge.
The most commonly used spread technique associated with nasty redirects like Mizdok.com is software installers’ corruption. The technique enables malicious intenders to inject PUPs’ configuration code in third-party apps installers so they can imperceptibly deliver added extras on users’ devices.
The installation process could easily happen without your knowledge as the installers are usually designed to conceal the presence of extras. And since the extras could be set to install by default along with the primary app at the ends of the installation process you could end up with a running undesired app on your device.
As a good security practice, we recommend the choice of installers’ Advanced/Custom configuration option. This practice could provide for the security of your device and prevent undesired apps from accessing your system as there you could sometimes reveal the presence of PUPs and opt out their installation.
