When and how did Piroga.space hijack your PC and how could it happen without your knowledge?

Many people tend to think that potentially unwanted programs spread like computer viruses and that they can simply “hack” the computer. That is not true; PUPs are not distributed using such harsh techniques. PUPs mostly spread using a legitimate software distribution method, which is called bundling. The developers of PUPs bundle them with other free programs and upload such software packages on various download websites. We would like to share some advice how to avoid installing PUPs alongside other free programs:

  1. Download software from trustworthy Internet sources.
  2. Do not select “Run” after you click “Download” button. Choose “Save” option instead. This way, you will give some time for computer security software to check if the file you have downloaded is a safe one.
  3. Install software using Advanced/Custom option. Either one or another selection reveals the list of optional components added to your download. Deselect them to avoid installing them.
