TidyNetwork virus

TidyNetwork Virus is one of those browser add-ons that cannot be exactly considered to be malware applications, and yet they are too intrusive to let them be. Even though users often call this plugin TidyNetwork Virus, it is not a genuine virus per se. It is a browser extension that is compatible with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. What is more, if you do not want to have it on your computer, you can easily remove TidyNetwork Virus via Control Panel. Hence, it definitely does not fall into the category of a truly malicious infection.

Nevertheless, it cannot be allowed to stay on your computer either, because it is highly vulnerable to malicious exploitation from a third party. As a result, TidyNetwork Virus could become instrumental in allowing dangerous infections to enter your PC. It may not be the plugin’s intention, but due to its lax privacy policy it could be used to display pop-up ads and other types of commercial advertisements that contain dubious outgoing links to corrupted websites.

Originally, TidyNetwork Virus has been created to help you improve your online shopping experience, just like any other coupon application. Whenever you browse the Internet TidyNetwork Virus should highlight exclusive deals that would help you save money on your purchases. The plugin also makes use of cookies to display the most relevant advertisements for you, by collecting data on your web browsing habits. However, it can also be exploited by cyber criminals, by providing you with a content that may look useful for you, while in fact you could be redirected to a dangerous website that is only waiting to infect you with malware.

That is the main issue related to similar coupon and discount deals apps – they are not exactly malicious, but at the same time they present various security risks that cannot be overlooked. The same can be applied to TidyNetwork Virus as well. Although it is not a computer infection, it is for the best to remove TidyNetwork Virus from your system, in order to prevent malicious third parties from exploiting it for malware distribution.
