How does SearchSnacks work?
SearchSnacks acts like a regular advertisement supported program – it displays online advertisements created by and representing the products of third parties. As our malware researchers here at Anti-Spyware-101.com have discovered, these online ads could be presented in various different ways. For example, some ads could be presented via in-text hyperlinks and others could pop-up in new windows or tabs. The displayed ads, coupons and deals hide links to third party sources; however, not all links are authentic. Some computer users discover redirecting to online surveys and installers which have nothing to do with the promoted services or products. If you face such activity as well, make sure you do not disclose personal information or install any software because this could be dangerous.
Online advertisements could be used to present you with links to websites promoting software installers that cannot be trusted. uPlayer, Conduit search protect and PC Optimizer Pro are few of the many applications which can be hidden in these installers. In fact, this software packaging method can be used to infiltrate SearchSnacks onto the operating system as well. Needless to say, running unfamiliar and potentially unreliable programs could be extremely risky because in some cases seemingly harmless programs end up being the most vicious and dangerous ones.
