- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
We have recently discovered a newly released adware program called Maximum Maker. Like all adware applications, it is unreliable and we recommend removing it, since the content it promotes cannot be verified as legitimate. There is, of course, a small possibility that this program will be set to display links to unreliable websites that, for example, may redirect to downloads of potentially unwanted software, such as useless registry cleaners. If you are not worried about malicious software entering your PC, then consider the practical implications associated with it. Basically, this program is set to display ads and does not do anything else. However, a more detailed analysis is in order to determine how malicious Maximum Maker is.
Maximum Maker comes from a long lineage of adware programs. It is based on the Injekt engine so it is regarded as part of this family of adware. Injekt LLC is an adware developer; you can visit its website at Injekt.com to learn more about it. Even though this company seems to be legitimate, its products are definitely not. Maximum Maker is as unreliable as the company’s previous releases, such as Blazer Deals, Wander Burst, High Stairs, and Positive Finds. Like most adware programs, especially from the Injekt family, this particular program is distributed using malicious software bundles. These malicious bundles are put up for download on shady freeware sharing websites. Freeware distributors are inclined to bundle legitimate programs with adware, because that is how they make money, which would be fine if it was not for one small detail.
Adware is prone do display advertisements that come from all kind of shady entities. We do not know if Maximum Maker will definitely advertise malicious software or websites, but this possibility cannot be ruled out, since the entities that use this program for promotional purposes can change in a matter of days. Maximum Maker could easily be reprogrammed to display different kinds of ads. It automatically connects to its server and gets instructions on what to display. This program should display advertisements in the form of coupons, banners, pop-ups, in-texts, and so on. These are pretty primitive, but effective advertising techniques that keep attracting unwary users. It must be mentioned, however, that the developers are not responsible for the negative consequences that can occur as a results of using this program.
We also want you to be aware that Maximum Maker is to collect certain information about you in order to advance its developer’s marketing goals. So this program automatically collects information regarding your personal interests, browsing habits, search entries, ads viewed and so on. If you try to contact the developers and provide personal information about yourself, then you should be aware that it will also be systematically collected and put into categories and supplemented with non-personal information collected earlier. This information is primarily used for targeted advertising and software improvement. However, it may also be loaned or soled to third parties.
So, nothing good will come from using Maximum Maker. Its website does not give any indication what this program is all about. It is, indeed, a deceptive program that will only show you annoying ads that you probably do not want to see. It is quite possible that the ads will promote links to downloads of unreliable software, and so on. But we cannot verify this at this time. In any case, you ought to remove Maximum Maker just to be on the safe side.
