PUP.Optional.CrossRider is a potentially unwanted application, which involves adware, installs toolbars or has other uncertain aims. Technically, PUP.Optional.CrossRider is not a virus, but it incorporates various infectious traits, such as rootkit functionalities to disguise itself deeply into the contaminated computer system, browser hijacking and, generally, just interfering with the victim's experience. PUP.Optional.CrossRider uses blackhat SEO to increase website traffic and benefit from the pay-per-click technique. PUP.Optional.CrossRider penetrates into the corrupted PC packed with freeware and shareware applications (download-managers, video recording/streaming or PDF creators). PUP.Optional.CrossRider is also packed within the custom installer on many download websites, such as CNET, Brothersoft or Softonic, so if the computer user has downloaded a particular tool from these websites, he/she might also installed PUP.Optional.CrossRider during the setup process of the program.
