Adware attacks are a form of malware attacks that constantly place ads on the web browser of an infected computer. These programs are often harmless because the perpetrator intends to advertise services or products without the consent of the victim.
By their nature, adware attacks can be very annoying as they appear any time a user accesses internet services.
Adware attacks usually position themselves as legitimate programs or use other programs that are running to trick users into clicking and installing them. Adware attacks remain very lucrative as they automatically generate revenue as soon as a user clicks on them.
