What is Virus? Virus belongs to the family of browser hijackers created by cyber criminals to run all kinds of commercial ads and boost the sponsored websites’ traffic to help its makers make illegal profits.

Those unwanted pop-ups will lure you into downloading bogus software or paying for defective products.
