Linkbucks is a legitimate website that often displays advertisements and allows users to make money by encoding their links. If users become Linkbucks clients and use the codes provided by this website for their links, every time someone else clicks the link the user is paid a particular sum of money. In a sense, Linkbucks functions as ad.Fly. The website itself is absolutely safe, but the problem arises, when a third party misuses Linkbucks to display their advertisements that might not be malware-free. Therefore, if you have clicked on a link that is encoded by Linkbucks, you are advised to refrain from clicking on any of the ads that appear on your screen.

There might be various types of ads displayed, because Linkbucks is a Paid To Post website (PTP), and a lot of commercial advertisements are shown. For example, when you click on a link, you are redirected to an advertisement website with Content locker. You are kept on the website for approximately 5 seconds, and then you can click to skip the ad and continue to the website you were going to visit in the first place. So during those 5 seconds be careful, because Linkbucks could be used by cyber criminals to display malicious advertisements. Clicking on them might lead you to dangerous websites and even malware infections.

Nevertheless, if you get infected with malware, Linkbucks cannot be blamed. Naturally, the system should have a better protection from exploits, but if your computer is displaying bouts of erratic behavior, then it is because you are probably infected with a Trojan or worm, not because of Linkbucks. This website does not even offer a single file to download. Therefore, to check what really is wrong with your system, you should download SpyHunter and perform a full system scan. Remember that Linkbucks is not a browser hijacker, nor does it have any toolbar that could be installed on your system. Check your computer for other malware and remove it immediately.
