Watch out for additional apps in software bundles to avoid PUPs

Creators of potentially unwanted programs monetize by redirecting users to affiliated sites and luring users to click on displayed advertisements. Browser hijackers, adware, and other junkware are distributed using a sneaky technique called software bundling.

When people download software bundles, there usually are more than two apps offered. All the trickery is that all apps are preselected for installation, so as soon as a user presses Recommended/Standard mode, all programs from the bundle get installed.

It's easy to evade PUPs that are spread by this technique – users have to pay attention to what's installed from these packs. Choose Advanced/Custom mode and deselect all pre-ticked boxes from the offers you're not interested in. To avoid bundles, users should download software only from legitimate vendors, but that doesn't guarantee that some of them won't be using bundling.

How to prevent from getting adware

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address.

If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for the server or network manager that needs to monitor connections and activities. VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world.

 

Recover files after data-affecting malware attacks

While much of the data can be accidentally deleted due to various reasons, malware is one of the main culprits that can cause loss of pictures, documents, videos, and other important files. More serious malware infections lead to significant data loss when your documents, system files, and images get encrypted. In particular, ransomware is is a type of malware that focuses on such functions, so your files become useless without an ability to access them.

Even though there is little to no possibility to recover after file-locking threats, some applications have features for data recovery in the system. In some cases, Data Recovery Pro can also help to recover at least some portion of your data after data-locking virus infection or general cyber infection.
