The Annoying Consequences of Cts.adssend.net's Presence

Most computer users affected by Cts.adssend.net pop-ups have reported that as soon as they launch their preferred Web browser, a large number of irritating pop-up messages and new tabs are opened automatically. These tabs may contain unwanted advertising material and fraudulent error messages. These error messages belong to a known social engineering tactic (that may try to persuade PC users to download a nonexistent update for a software on their computer). Unfortunately, the affected Web browser will continue to open new tabs and pop-up windows whenever the PC user tries to open a link or carry out the simplest tasks on the affected Web browser. It is important to note that Cts.adssend.net pop-ups will rarely occur on their own. Pop-ups from a whole host of low quality advertisement platforms may be opened simultaneously, including the following:

– beadr.com
– cts.adssend.net
– eadvertsiements.com
– a.advertisements.com
– fetcharate.com

Affected Web browsers may be redirected to the website mackeeperapp.zerobit.com, which is associated with known online tactics.
