EQAdvice — Not a Good Source For Advice
One day I started getting frequent pop-ups. I wasn’t quite sure what caused them so I started looking around on my computer for things I didn’t install to see what may have snuck onto my computer. I found eqadvice.exe on my computer. I did some digging and found that I was infected by EQAdvice and it is both a Trojan and adware.
A Trojan horse, or Trojan, is a type of malware that will get onto your computer by posing as a desirable program. It could appear as a game, a screen saver, antivirus software, etc. A Trojan, once on your computer, will open up security holes in your computer or network so that the creator can get some kind of access or control of your computer or network. Once said access to your computer or network is achieved, it can be used in spam campaigns, denial of service attacks, etc., or your private files can be accessed and possibly destroyed. That can be a problem if your computer is used for business.
Adware is a program that was written so that advertisers can get their advertisements directly to you. Their usual method of doing so is through the use of pop-up ads, but they have also been known to use pop-unders, banner ads, and floating advertisements. Adware programs are known to hog your computer’s processing power and bandwidth, which leads to slower computer and Internet speeds. Adware usually gets on your computer from being in a software bundle. You intend to download and install one program, but extra stuff gets installed when you run the installation of the program you wanted.
