Thirteen Degrees

Here is a fancy name for a malicious infection - Thirteen Degrees, an irritating, good for nothing adware program that will surely cause you problems if you do not remove it. The content this application promotes is provided exclusively by third parties who promote all kinds of unreliable websites and download links. Having this application installed on your computer puts its security as well as your privacy in jeopardy. So, if you do not want to deal with the issues that follow-up after Thirteen Degrees infects your computer, please get rid of it.

Thirteen Degrees is one of the more recent adware applications developed by a software developer known as SuperWeb, which is a limited liability company and with good reason, because it cannot ensure the legitimacy of the content it promotes, and therefore, the developers distance themselves from the users if something bad happens, but we will get to it in just a bit.

First we must discuss the issue regarding its dissemination methods. Like all SuperWeb infections, Thirteen Degrees has a promotional website for reasons unclear reasons, because the green download button that reads “Start Now!” never works. But Thirteen Degrees does not need a dedicated download website, because it belongs to an established malware developer that has numerous business partners in the software distributing industry. Software bundles are used to distribute this infection. But you can avoid installing Thirteen Degrees by opting for advanced installation settings and removing it from the list of additionally offered installations.

But if your PC becomes infected with Thirteen Degrees, you will be subjected to third-party ads that you should not click under any circumstances, because there is no way of knowing which advertisement is malicious and which is not. If you click an ad that is malicious, you will be redirected to a website and if you click anything there you might infect your computer with ransomware, keyloggers, worms, and various other infections. Therefore, we recommend getting a program that would warn you about malicious websites, and block them when necessary. At any rate, the ads you can be subjected to include coupons, in-texts, pop-ups, and so on. So, you should avoid clicking them.

There is one other malicious trait that needs to be explored in greater detail. Collection of information is one other function Thirteen Degrees is known for. If you voluntarily provide personal information to the developers of this application it might be shared with shady third parties, so do not do it. As far as non-personal information goes, Thirteen Degrees will use browser cookies, web and DOM storage data, Adobe Flash cookies, pixels, beacons, JavaScript, and other tracking and data collection technologies to keep tabs on you.

Surely you do not want an application that can collect information about you and share it with unreliable entities who promote content that can damage your computer. Therefore, we recommend that you remove Thirteen Degrees using the instructions we have made. Feel free to leave a comment or a question in the comments section below.
