The ad-supported software and malware have been actively distributing around with the help of dubious sites and links. If you are not accurate enough and lack knowledge, you might enter such site without even trying. Keep in mind that nowadays viruses can affect entire cities.[2]

According to IT experts[3], such harmful programs also might spread via spam or P2P networks.[4] Peer-to-peer sites, such as eMule, PirateBay, and similar ones are typically used to spread illegal versions of the different software. However, beware that this is a straight way to the infiltration of malware.
