Lucky Leap

Lucky Leap Description

Lucky Leap is an adware application that shows advertisements, coupons, and sponsored links through a pop-up box in Google, Youtube, Amazon, Facebook and other websites that are visited by computer users. Lucky Leap pop-up advertisements will be delivered as boxes, which include a variety of coupons that are available or as underlined keywords, which when clicked will illustrate a pop-up advertisement that declares it comes to the web user by Lucky Leap. Lucky Leap is produced by cybercriminals most likely with the goal to make a profit from click fraud and raised traffic. Lucky Leap may boost web traffic, gather sales leads for other doubtful websites, and show diturbing pop-up advertisements and sponsored links within the hacked Internet browser. Lucky Leap is technically not a security infection, but it encompasses numerous harmful features, such as rootkit functionalities that enable it to conceal itself deeply onto the corrupted PC, browser hijacking, and in general just interfering with the attacked PC user experience. Lucky Leap is an add-on for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome that is usually embedded when the PC user installs another free software product (video recording/streaming, download-managers or PDF creators) that had packed into their installation Lucky Leap. When the web user installs these free tools, he/she will also install Lucky Leap.
