Engineering Group Inc Product Description
Users who notice that they are encountering far more advertisements than normal and far more suspicious-looking than usual also might discover that an application called Engineering Group Inc Product has managed to somehow install itself on their computers. As one might suspect, these two events are not unrelated. In fact, the opposite is true - the Engineering Group Inc Product has been determined to be a dubious application designed to run intrusive advertising campaigns on the devices it is present on.
Adware applications often manage to sneak past users' attention by latching themselves to other more popular software products in a scheme known as 'bundling.' Another popular distribution method that is equally as abhorrent sees the questionable applications disguise themselves as installers/updaters for other products. The reliance on such methods classified these applications as PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs).
While Engineering Group Inc Product and most PUPs are not serious threats and cannot cause direct damage to the computer, that in no way means that they are completely safe. The advertisements generated by Engineering Group Inc Product could show clickbait messages to lure users into clicking on them. Then, via forced redirects, they may lead to various deceiving third-party websites.
Furthermore, PUPs almost always possess data-collection capabilities. Usually, they go after the user's browsing activities, such as the entire browsing and search histories, clicked URLs, etc. The gathered information is transmitted to a remote server where the operators of the PUP can decide how to exploit it freely.
