What is DealNoDeal?
DealNoDeal is not considered to be a serious virus. Nevertheless, it may cause various issues on the contaminated computer because it’s a typical adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP), which main task is to promote third-parties. Just like any other adwares (such as Webfuii, Sliding Sales, ZoomPic, etc.), it tends to spread as an attachment of various freewares and sharewares. This way, it commonly manages to enter computers and hijack web browsers without being noticed. However, the user of a computer, which hides DealNoDeal adware inside, sooner or later will start receiving sponsored messages during browsing. It may start displaying an excessive amount of pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, in-text ads, search ads, video ads and other intrusive forms of commercial messages, which are marked as ‘Ads by DealNoDeal’. However, you can never know what kind of websites third-parties may decide to promote with the help of those ads. Of course, some of the DealNoDeal ads can make you visit trustful online shops; however, the probability that some of them will be linked to suspicious websites also remains. In addition, this dubious adware may also start tracking your web browsing activities with an intention to find more about your browsing habits. It is stated that DealNoDeal virus is capable of collecting only personally non-identifiable information, such as search terms, websites, visited, data entered in them, clicks and so on. However, it appeared that your email address, IP address, PC’ location and similar information may also be collected. Don’t you consider such data to be sensitive? We think that such information should be kept in private in order to prevent other issues. Therefore, mainly due to the risk of redirects and loss of data we recommend removing DealNoDeal adware from the system. For that, we recommend using Reimage (Windows OS) or Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (Mac OS X).
