Pop-up advertising itself is a good, low-priced and also extremely efficient advertising tool1. It enables the vendor to attach the buyers’ interest to their site, and the customers to get the dynamic updates on the goods they intend to buy. When the consumer will receive a pop-up notification that the TV set he wishes to buy is offered at the online store he/she visited earlier with a 15% discount, one will surely use this chance and purchase it. Taking into consideration the very small cost for the popups and their targeting, such an advertising and marketing method is a much-loved thing among the advertising departments of huge online retail stores.

Ability to show the popup ads forcibly to the people of malware attack is an ideal basis for evil-minded manipulations with the popup promotions. And Dybdended.com ads is one of hundreds that are “employed” in this scheme.
