What are News-pezabi pop-ups?
News-pezabi popups are a result of adware activity. Adware is a sort of malware that presents you the pay-per-view of pay-per-click ads, which generates a substantial amount of profit for adware suppliers. These advertisements may consist of sometimes shocking content, or have a web link to malicious content/website, due to the fact that adware maintainers have no reason to check the goodness of the web content they are going to show – their single target is money.
Pop-up promotions itself is an excellent, affordable and really productive advertising method1. It makes it possible for the seller to attach the customers’ attention to their site, and the buyers to get the dynamic updates on the goods they want to purchase. When the consumer will receive a pop-up notification that the TV set he desires to buy is offered at the online store he/she saw previously with a 15% discount, one will surely use this possibility and purchase it. Considering the incredibly low cost for the popups and their targeting, such a marketing tool is a favorite thing among the advertising departments of huge internet retail stores.
Nevertheless, such a rewarding scheme could not be missed by virus developers. Potential to show the popup ads by force to the people of malware attack is a perfect basis for evil-minded manipulations with the popup ads. And News-pezabi.com advertisements is just one of hundreds that are “employed” in this scheme.
