SultanArcade.com – Spread

SultanArcade.com can be spread through third-party installation setups. Applications associated with SultanArcade can enter your computer, without your knowledge. Bundle packages and freeware setups could spread the adware to your computer device. Such installations can have additional components set for default installing. To avoid the installations of unneeded software, you should search and hopefully find a Custom or an Advanced menu. Once there, you should be able to deselect the extra components.

SultanArcade.com may also be spread through websites consisting of various online gaming content, or ones generating this type of advertisements. If you by any chance have clicked on any redirecting links of similar content you might have ended up with the adware from there. Banners, pop-ups or other ads can be generated to advertise the platform and could spread the adware or redirect to the main site page. Browsers which are affected: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari.

SultanArcade.com – Details

SultanArcade.com is the official domain for a gaming platform named in the same way – SultanArcade. Initially, the site looks like many other websites with online games, but in a short while, you see the advertising on it. Lots of advertisements pop up, and that can even slow down your computer machine or internet connection in the worst case scenario. The site, its related platform, plus every application that is connected to them will generate advertisements.

SultanArcade.com mainly distributes ads which are pop-ups and banners including ones that appear when you are trying to launch a game on this website. Every game, shown on the website uses Adobe’s Flash Player or HTML5 for being able to run. The issue with the Flash Player is if an older version is required to run the games. In that case, there could be vulnerabilities which are active and open for exploitation. In-game and interstitial adverts appear when you launch games on this website.

Below you can see one in-game ad on SultanArcade.com:

stf-sultanarcade-com-sultan-arcade-adware-ads-in-game-ad

When your browser apps or your computer system have any software connected to this adware platform, you will witness sponsored advertising content and redirect links being generated left and right.

Advertisements could have text inside them:

  • Advert from SultanArcade.com
  • Ad by SultanArcade.com
  • Ads by SultanArcade.com
  • Powered by SultanArcade.com
  • Advertisement by SultanArcade.com
  • Brought to you by SultanArcade.com

The SultanArcade website could be hosting links which can redirect you to suspicious online sites and make traffic, which in turn is turned into revenue with the help of a pay-per-click service. Lots of the advertisements on the site could be associated with partners or affiliates of the gaming platform. Sponsored content and adverts could display on this site and collect different types of information about you and your browsing activity. The advertisements on SultanArcade.com can take the shape of banners, pop-ups, pop-unders, and in-game ads, or text links, transitional, interstitial ads.
