MyOfficeTab – Spread Techniques

There are several possible techniques that may be used for spread of MyOfficeTab browser extension. Since it is considered to be a potentially undesired program all these techniques aim to trick you into installing in without noticing its presence. Among these techniques are software bundling, website corruption, and malvertising.

As a primary distribution technique is likely to be preferred the so-called software bundling. It enables PUP owners to bundle their product with any supposedly useful software and then release the bundle across the web. Unfortunately, you are not always properly informed about the presence of the PUP. The installers of apps that spread potentially undesired programs like MyOfficeTab are often designed to hide the details in their Advanced, Custom configuration steps.

This could be explained by the fact that most of the online users install newly downloaded apps without paying attention on the information mentioned there and eventually unintentionally accept the installation of all extra apps. So in order to prevent such unwanted consequences we recommend you to read carefully all details stated in the installer and stop the installation of undesired apps on time.

MyOfficeTab – More About Its Impact
