Where does NetSurf Ads come from?

User reports and our research clearly show that the most likely way for you to have this adware on board without your knowledge is to install it via freeware bundles. As you may already know, bundling is one of the most widely used methods cyber criminals turn to in an attempt to spread their malicious programs. The main reason is that they can infect you with a whole package of malicious threats in one go and it is also quite easy to mislead lots of inexperienced users to do so since all it takes really is a click on the wrong content. Schemers can, for instance, set up fake file-sharing websites whose main goal is to promote such bundles while posing as stores of free or hacked programs and other files (movies, books, and music). But there are also all kinds of websites, including gaming, gambling, dating, and porn-related ones that generally host lots of annoying third-party ads and ones that you cannot even identify as ads (fake buttons, invisible scripts, false notifications, etc.). Yet another possibility for you to be introduced to harmful ads is to have a malware program on your system like this one. Hopefully, you understand now the urgency and importance of scanning your PC with a reputable online malware scanner, for example, in order to find all security holes where your system can be open for malicious attacks.

How does NetSurf Ads work?

These advertisements are indeed the work of a browser extension called Net Surf. This adware only affects your Google Chrome browser as of yet, which does not mean that in the near future it cannot infect your other major browsers, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. This malware infection pretends to be a useful app that can show you lower prices and coupons when you land on online shopping sites. The pop-up windows this application displays are rather annoying as they overlap a major portion of your screen and hide the content that you are browsing below. Our tests show that in addition to being distracting these ads can also pose a threat to your virtual security. Cyber crooks can take advantage of the low quality and low security level of such an adware app and promote their malicious websites through them. This is why you may end up on a fake online shop or any other type of malicious pages if you click on the wrong third-party ad, i.e., supposed best offers or coupons, coming from this browser extension. Since you may be misled to share your personal data and credit card information on such pages, or in other words, you could be scammed out of your money, we suggest that you remove NetSurf Ads ASAP.
