Many HugeApps advertisements promote known hoaxes or other PUPs. For example, HugeApps may advertise fake security programs and technical support services, all of which may be designed to take money from inexperienced computer users. Some HugeApps advertisements also may try to convince computer users that they need to download and install a software update, which may be another PUP or an even more threatening component.
