Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has come to a conclusion that Traff-1.ru is dependent on Russian adware that you might install onto your operating system via malicious software bundles and unreliable file-sharing websites. Battlecarnival.ru, detektor-milionera.com, and marketgid.com are few of the many suspicious websites that Traff-1.ru could route you to, and, unsurprisingly, they are all represented in Russian.
