Kasimos

Over the last year we have seen an immense increase of adware applications and users who are not used to careful Internet browsing are about to get infected with such applications as Kasimos. It is an adware program that travels bundled with freeware, and once it gets installed on a target computer, it installs extensions to all main browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer), and then displays various pop-up advertisements. That is a highly annoying and even dangerous behavior that should not be ignored, so the sooner you remove Kasimos from your system the better.

Technically, such browser applications as Kasimos should be available for download at their official web pages. Kasimos also has a home page and it contains a download link, but it does not work. Were you to click the link it would redirect you to a new blank page. Since the download link at the official kasimos.net web page does not work, you may wonder as to how the adware application enters target computers. The answer is simple – bundled downloads.

A lot of adware applications make use of bundled freeware downloads to distribute themselves. This tactics has been used by other applications from the same family, such as Cling Clang, Wisen Wizard, LemurLeap and others. Kasimos is of no exception – the program can come bundled with freeware and adware, so in the end you are the one who allows this application to enter the system. Whenever you are about to install a new application on your computer, make sure that you have downloaded it from an official website. The software installers that are available on third party file hosting pages often come with some additional software. Thus, when you go through the installation process it would not be a good idea to skip the setup steps, as you might be missing your chance to avoid installing Kasimos on your system.

Once the program is set up, you will notice an increased amount of pop-up advertisements appear. The pop-ups will be displayed when you access commercial websites that are supported by Kasimos. Computer security experts categorize the application as an adware that belongs to coupons family. It means that the application should be displaying coupon suggestions and discount offers when you access online shopping malls.

The main security concern regarding Kasimos is the fact that it relies on third party advertising networks for its pop-up content. However, no adware application can be held responsible for a third party content, because it is not covered by its privacy policy (if it has one). Hence, if you install the application and it gets exploited by a malevolent third party in a dangerous marketing or malware distribution scheme, you have no one else but yourself to blame.

Remove Kasimos from your computer right now and then acquire a powerful antimalware tool to scan it for other potentially unwanted and dangerous programs. Do it all it takes to protect your computer from harm.
