What is ViperDJ?
ViperDJ may not be the most dangerous infection on the planet, but it is definitely not “the most intuitive DJ software,” either. As a matter of fact, our malware specialists at Anti-Spyware-101.com have labeled it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). While it may function all right as a song mixer, this PUP is surely not the best DJ tool you can find; not even close. However, ViperDJ has shown some worrisome traits that may actually pose a threat to your system’s security. Not only that, but this PUP may also not be the only threat on your computer. If you want to see clearly what you may be up against if this PUP is on your computer, you should read our whole report. We hope that by the end you will understand why we say that you should remove ViperDJ if you care about your virtual security.
Where does ViperDJ come from?
You can download the installer from its official website, viper.dj, however, you may end up on a red, warning page with the following message:
Attackers on finance.magnofiles.com might attempt to trick you into installing programs that harm your browsing experience (for example, by changing your homepage or showing extra ads on sites you visit).
Now, that is not really saying that you should trust this application and please go on trying to download it from somewhere else, is it? But, even if you manage to download an official installer, according to our specialists, it may include bad toolbar and adware program installers. That is rather suspicious behavior and should be just enough for a security-minded computer user to act right away and delete ViperDJ.
However, this is not the only way for this PUP to infiltrate your computer. It has also been found in freeware bundles packed with malware applications. So, if you have ViperDJ on-board, it is quite likely that you have been haunted by third-party ads every time you go online.
How does ViperDJ act?
Although this application claims to be the simplest and most intuitive music mixing software, we have found that it may start to show third-party ads through its own application window. But it can also generate pop-up advertisements and redirections while you are using your browser. You should never trust ads and programs that display them because they are tools for making easy money for the creators while not only are they annoying, but they may also put your computer at risk. If you do not wish to land on websites that are operated by criminals, you should not think twice about the fate of this program, you should simply delete it.
How do I remove ViperDJ?
If you want to protect your computer, the solution is quite straightforward. You cannot have malware infections and PUPs on your operating system if you would like to feel safe and not exposed to cyber criminals. You can eliminate ViperDJ by simply uninstalling it through Control Panel. If you have never done that, please refer to our instructions below this article. Also, please remember that by being more careful about the selection of the websites you visit and download software from, you can protect your computer from similar attacks. You can do even more, if you stop clicking on third-party ads wherever you end up while surfing the web.
