OffersWizard Uses Its 'Magical Powers' to Favor Its Creators
OffersWizard is designed to generate revenue. There are various strategies in which OffersWizard may be used to make money for a third party at your expense. Below, security researchers have listed the three main ways in which OffersWizard generates revenue:
- OffersWizard delivers advertisements to the victim's computer. OffersWizard is associated with pop-up advertisements, sliding advertisements, banner advertisements, video advertisements and in-text marketing links that cause pop-up windows to appear when the affected computer user passes the mouse cursor over them. These types of marketing materials generate advertisement revenue directly at the expense of affected computer users.
- OffersWizard also causes Web browser redirects. This practice, known as browser hijacking, involves taking over the affected Web browser and redirecting it to determined websites repeatedly. Typically, OffersWizard redirects computer users to websites containing numerous advertisements and sponsored content. This allows marketers to generate revenue from affiliate marketing.
- OffersWizard may also generate revenue through market research. OffersWizard may gather information about your online habits and Web browser settings. This information may be sold to an outsider and may be part of identity theft and other harmful practices.
Do not let marketers generate revenue at your expense! Security researchers strongly recommend that computer users remove OffersWizard immediately from an affected computer. Once OffersWizard has been uninstalled, it is important to verify that OffersWizard has not exposed the affected computer to other potentially unsafe content by scanning the affected computer with a reliable security program.
