What is Strato Music?
With digital music taking over probably the biggest share of the music market, we have seen an increase of applications that allow users to stream and download the digital audio. At the first sight, Strato Music seems to be exactly that kind of an application, but we regret to inform you that this program is just another adware app. Adware programs are pieces of software that have been created for monetary purposes. They are full of commercial advertisements, most of which are embedded with a third-party content. Some of that might be corrupted, so adware apps could be relatively dangerous, and that is just one of the reasons you should remove it.
Where does Strato Music come from?
Strato Music has an official website. It makes it look as though the program is reliable. However, if you were to download the application from stratomusic.com, you would see that even the app from the official installer does not work properly. What’s more, when we compare the website with the data from our previous research, we can see that the program’s homepage is the same as that of Celeb Wham. Therefore, it means that the app is part of a bigger adware family, and the aim of such program is clear: making easy money by tricking users into clicking their ads.
Aside from the official site, you should also consider the possibility that Strato Music might have entered bundled with other freeware. That is one of the most popular freeware distribution methods nowadays, and if that is really the case, then you will have to remove an entire horde of adware and freeware applications. If this task sounds daunting, do yourself a favor and invest in a reliable computer security tool. This way you will be sure that not a single unnecessary file remains in your system.
What does Strato Music do?
As mentioned, supposedly, this application should help you stream music online. However, once you launch the program you are given a choice to choose between two online music sites: Grooveshark and Last.fm. Therefore, it is clear that the application does not provide you with an original service. It functions as an intermediary between you and other websites. It is obvious that you can easily access such pages on your own, and there is no need to rely on a third-party app that could also expose you to dangerous content.
That is not to say that the application wants to infect you with malware on purpose. Strato Music simply makes money each time you click a third-party ad because it employs the pay-per-click system. It merely washes its hands off when it comes to third-party content. So if you get infected with malware after you click any of the ads delivered by this program, you will have no one but yourself to blame. In legal terms, Strato Music is no liable for whatever damage corrupted third-party content might inflict on your system.
Despite the fact that the program is not malicious by nature, it does not cancel out all the potential threats you face by using it. Hence, it would be in your best interest to get rid of this program at once.
