What is Job Knows?
Job Knows pretends to be a useful application that claims to enable you to find your “dream job”; however, our malware researchers have found that this is a new creation from the team who is responsible for identical questionable programs, such as BlingJobs, Flexible Family, and ChatClap. Our research team has categorized this desktop application as an adware program. Since it has the capability to introduce you to potentially questionable web content, we believe that your computer would be safer without this adware. What is even worse that if this unreliable application has infiltrated your system, it is quite likely that other malware programs have also come with it. That is why you should act now and remove Job Knows together with all other harmful programs. But let us tell you in more detail how this infection may pose a threat to your computer and what you can do to avoid it.
Where does Job Knows come from?
Although this application has its own very simple webpage at JobKnows.com, we do not advise you to visit it. One of the reasons is that this page hosts potentially unreliable third-party ads; however, what is worse, the installer you can download from this page is actually a bundle of a number of suspicious applications and malicious software installers. According to our researchers, you can find well-known infections in this package, including MyPcBackUp, Yoursearching.com, and Search Know. It is also possible that these infections change according to your region. Another factor could be time that influences the content of this bundle. It is obvious that if you install this lot, you will have multiple virtual security issues on your computer before long. Also, it will not be enough to remove Job Knows only from your PC.
Our research shows that there are alternative ways for this adware to slither onto your computer. In fact, it is more likely that this application has entered using these channels. One possibility is that you click on a link or ad on a modified search results page that is displayed by a browser hijacker. Another possibility is that you click on an unsafe third-party ad, such as a pop-up download offer. This pop-up can be generated by an adware program on your computer or an unsafe website that you may be viewing. At the end of the day, you need to realize that it is quite likely that there may be a bunch of malware programs on your computer if this adware is on board. Leaving any of these infections untouched might have serious consequences.
How does Job Knows work?
This application has its own window in which it can load specific career-related websites, including startacareertoday.com. The main characteristic of this Graphical User Interface (GUI) is that there is a relatively large logo in the top-left corner. This adware also promotes these websites right after you download the installer from its official page, for example. But it also may open an Internet Explorer window and load such pages, not to mention the possibility that you may start experiencing third-party ads that could be unsafe to click on. All in all, we must warn you that this adware can expose you to potentially harmful content. If you engage with any of such content, you may be taken to malicious websites operated by crooks. If you are not careful, you may download further infections onto your machine; however, that would be the least worrisome because you may also get scammed in other ways. For example, you could end up on a fake website where you may be asked to enter your banking information. Imagine what may happen if this gets in the hands of criminals. We hope that you see now that you cannot take lightly even when there is only a slight chance that an application may expose you to such content. We advise you to remove Job Knows if you want to keep your computer clean.
How to delete Job Knows
Fortunately, there is an easy way to get rid of this annoying adware. In fact, you can delete this application even if you are not an experienced computer user since all it takes is to run the uninstaller of this program. If you have never uninstalled an application before, please follow our instructions below. Keep in mind that you can do a lot with regard to the protection of your PC if you keep away from suspicious websites, mainly questionable torrent and freeware sites, and also, if you do not click on any third-party advertisements. We suggest that you be careful with opening e-mails and their attachments sent by unknown senders, and the same goes for “must-see” videos or images you may find posted on your social networking walls (Facebook and Twitter) or sent in chat windows. If you want to make sure that you do everything for your protection, we would also recommend that you keep all your programs regularly updated to lower the vulnerability of your operating system.
