Easily for Hackers and MySearch
There are also other adware programs that can record your keystrokes and send the information to the adware author. These recorded keystrokes will be able to provide computer hackers with a wealth of valuable information such as secret passwords, credit card numbers as well as email addresses.
This type of adware program can make it easy for hackers to retrieve such sensitive personal information that can be used at your own expense. Other adware programs such as MySearch can scan files on your hard drive secretly, attach other spyware programs into your computer, install and lock its own brand of web browser and many other malicious things.
Our first line of defense is to do some research for the diverse types of adware that are out there. A further is that we can make sure that before opening, checking out and broadcasting strange websites; we should know its contents already whether it is through friends and relatives or people that may know the site that we intend to open. For those naughty teenagers, keep away from opening sites that are not for you such as pornographic sites because a lot of the adware comes from such site because of their popularity. It is said that attackers could use a website, email, or other means to distribute the Adware and launch a widespread extortion campaign. When the user visits a cruel website, his unpatched PC gets infected with adware such as MySearch and this adware allows already inputting advertisements that is very maddening to the person using the computer. Adware are very dangerous because of the new types of adware that malicious people are coming up everyday. It is no joke that more and more people are getting infected with such vile acts and we as part of society should be aware and ready.
