The image of Jisuzip virus

Jisuzip is an adware program. Nevertheless, it is promoted as a useful archive tool; it causes numerous annoying and potentially dangerous activities, such as displaying intrusive ads, redirecting to promotional sites and tracking information about users.

This Chinese application has been spotted spreading bundled with another potentially unwanted program (PUP) Maoha WiFi. After the installation, it becomes the default program for creating, unpacking and compressing archives.

Jisuzip virus makes changes on the system not only for replacing your current program for handling archives. It might also modify Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox settings in order to display commercial content for the users.

Online advertising[1] is the main source of income for the developers. For this reason, it generates tons of commercial content in different shapes and forms. Jisuzip ads might show up as regular online ads, pop-ups, banners, discount coupons, in-text ads, etc.

The adware might use a “virtual layer” to display ads on each website user visits. Usually, they appear in strange places and cover important content. What is more, sometimes they do not have close button and force to click them.

This ad-supported application is also suspected for delivering ads based on user’s browsing history and habits. In other words, it might be spying on you and collecting information about your online activities.

The example of Jisuzip adsJisuzip virus delivers tons of aggressive and misleading online ads on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

The hidden dangers of the advertisements

One of the main reasons why Jisuzip removal should not be delayed is potential threats to your computer. Nevertheless, the program itself does not pose a danger; the ads might be dangerous.[2]

For instance, some ads might promote bogus software, such as PC optimization tools or unknown antivirus programs. Instead of installing a useful tool to fix or protect your computer, you might install malware.

It might also offer a great discount for online shopping. Once you click on the ad, you might be redirected to the site that asks to enter your personal details, such as credit card information, full name, address, etc., to get a promised discount.

As you can see, these Jisuzip redirect tendencies might end up with cyber infection or some privacy-related issues.

Adware might also initiate sudden redirects to promotional sites that appear to be tech support scam, phishing or even infected websites.

To protect your PC and personal privacy from such threats, you should scan the computer with Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego or another anti-malware program. It helps to remove Jisuzip and get back to safe browsing.

Jisuzip adware hijacks the PC after incorrect software installation

We have already mentioned that this Chinese archive program spreads with MaohaWiFI. However, it might be bundled with other freeware or shareware too.

Bundling is a software marketing technique that allows adding Jisuzip and other PUPs as an optional component in a software package. That’s why you have to learn to “unpack” new programs before installing freeware or shareware.

To see the list of third-party programs and reject their installation, you have to always opt for Advanced/Custom installation. Follow each step carefully. Once you see pre-selected entries, untick them all without any consideration.

The Jisuzip hijack may have occurred if you rushed through the Advanced installation wizard and just clicked “Next” button without reading the notifications. Or you relied on Quick/Recommended settings that do not disclose about third-party software and installs it by default.

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. It is a hassle when your website is protected from suspicious connections and unauthorized IP addresses.

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 server or network manager that need to monitor connections and activities. This is how you bypass some of the authentications factors and can remotely use your banking accounts without triggering suspicious with each login. 

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. It is better to clock the access to your website from different IP addresses. So you can keep the project safe and secure when you have the dedicated IP address VPN and protected access to the content management system.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer various losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Software issues created by malware or direct data loss due to encryption can lead to problems with your device or permanent damage. When you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work.

It is crucial to create updates to your backups after any changes on the device, so you can get back to the point you were working on when malware changes anything or issues with the device causes data or performance corruption. Rely on such behavior and make file backup your daily or weekly habit.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware occurs out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the system restoring purpose.
