How does Hawker travel?

Have you found Hawker installed on your Google Chrome browser? If you have, you should eliminate the extension as soon as possible. Next, you need to open the Task Manager and kill the process that goes by the name “VersionControl.exe”. If the browser extension and the process do not exist, it is unlikely that Hawker has found its way into your operating system. Of course, if you want to be sure, you can – and this is highly recommended – run a legitimate malware scanner. If you find this infection, you have to ask yourself how it entered your Windows operating system. Anti-Spyware-101.com adware researchers have not found this threat traveling via software bundles, so our best guess is that it is downloaded by Trojans. Just as the name suggests, Trojan infections are concealed as harmless software, which means that users might have no idea their computers are infected with malware that can download other infections.

Once installed, Hawker will immediately connect to remote servers to transfer information (usually transferring to businesssupervision.com) and inject advertisements. Clicking on the ads associated with this adware can be very dangerous, as any of these ads can hide links to extremely malicious sites. Even more malicious programs could find their way into your operating system via these advertisements. If you do not want to attract them, the best thing you can do is delete Hawker.
