What are News-fuvas pop-ups?
News-fuvas popups are a consequence of adware presence. Adware is a sort of malware that presents you the pay-per-view of pay-per-click ads, which creates a significant amount of profit for adware distributors. These promotions might contain sometimes shocking information, or have a link to malevolent content/website, since adware maintainers have no reason to examine the goodness of the material they are going to reveal – their single target is cash.
Pop-up advertising itself is a good, cheap and also extremely successful advertising solution1. It enables the seller to link the buyers’ interest to their site, as well as the buyers to get the dynamic updates on the goods they wish to purchase. When the consumer will get a pop-up notification that the TV set he likes to purchase is available at the online store he/she visited previously with a 15% discount, one will undoubtedly use this possibility and purchase it. Considering the very low cost for the popups and their targeting, such a promotion and marketing method is a favourite thing amongst the advertising departments of huge online stores.
However, such a rewarding scheme could not be missed by virus creators. Ability to show the popup ads forcibly to the victims of malware invasion is a perfect basis for evil-minded adjustments with the popup advertisements. And News-fuvaso.com promotions is one of hundreds that are “employed” in this system.
