Ultimaterecipes(.)net Pop-ups – How Did I Get Them
There are two most probable ways you could have let this browser extension slip by on your computer.
One of the distribution methods it may use is via online advertisements. Online advertisements come in all shapes and sizes and there are even some websites that recommend such products as indirect ads, fooling users they are in for something ad-free and as harmless as it is useful.
The other way that such PUPs(Potentially Unwanted Programs) get pushed into user PCs is by bundling downloads. Bundling is a notorious tool for marketing third-party applications out to the public. It is mostly used by third-parties that provide direct download of the installers or torrent-providing sites. Users are warned to watch out for ‘Add Ultimaterecipes.net extension as a free extra’ during software installation and to always choose the ‘Custom’ or ‘Advanced’ installation option instead of going for the ‘Express Install’.
Ultimaterecipes.net Pop-ups – What Does It Do?
Once activated on your computer, the browser extension may modify various settings on your browser that may allow it to:
- Modify and manage site content.
- Manage the browser settings.
- Manage and track the webpages a user visits.
- Display advertisements from third-parties.
- Create settings in the Windows Registry Editor.
- Manage browser tabs.
All of those settings may allow the extension to cause direct redirects to other websites, such as data-error-alert(.)com which are normally forbidden when you visit them, because they are outlined as scamming sites, however the app may modify the settings on your browser to let such pages slip by.
What is more, the extension then may begin to display various types of online advertisements, such as:
- Pop-ups (sometimes with a video or a sound message or displaying fake window alert).
- Banners on the website (It may take over the banner space and replace it with own).
- Ad-supported search results (Results linking to other search engines or other third-party sites that may have nothing in common with what the user is searching for).
- Highlighted text in the website a user may visit (When the mouse is dragged on top of it, a pop-up with the highlighted keyword in mind may be displayed).
All of the advertisements may initially lead to respectable websites. For example if a user is searching for smartphones he may see several different ads, one of which may be to Amazon, eBay, AliExpress or any other reputable online retailer. However there may be links to suspicious third-party websites which aim to either scam the user using devious ways to do it(Fake tech support, SMS fraud, fake retailer, fake prize claiming, etc.) or infect the user PC with malware. Both of these threats aim either for the user money or information and the cyber-criminals may have different motivations and interests (financial, political, etc.)
So as far as virus researchers from top anti-malware companies are concerned programs such as Ultimaterecipes.net may be far from useful and should be immediately removed from your computer, because they conceal certain risks.
