Unfortunately, the Jabuticaba program we are dealing with here has nothing to do with the Brazilian fruit. The truth is that this application is an adware program that has been created to make its developers rich. At least that is what they are aiming for, and whether you aid them in their quest or not, that is up to you. We believe that your best choice in this situation is to remove Jabuticaba from your computer as this application is highly intrusive, and it can lead to particular computer security issues that might be hard to contain later on. To put it simply, you need to nip the problem in the bud.

Depending on your location, this adware program may exhibit different behavioral patterns. However, one thing is certain: Jabuticaba displays commercial advertisements to make money. The advertisement content may differ based on your home country; that is, they might be localized, but that is no reason to click them. Jabuticaba clearly does not review the content that gets embedded in its ads, so it cannot guarantee that you will be redirected to reliable websites once you click them. The program only cares about the money it earns when you increase traffic on the affiliated websites. It is too profit-oriented to worry about your safety and security.

You might be wondering then, how Jabuticaba managed to enter your system, especially as you do not remember having installed it. The point is that you most probably set up this application yourself. You just were not paying attention to the programs you have been downloading. True, the program has an official homepage, and you can access it via jabuticaba-tech.com, but it is very unlikely that users find this website in order to download Jabuticaba. As a matter of fact, you CAN download the application from its official website, but you will probably notice immediately that this program is just another version of Shopperz or V-Bates adware.

Consequently, we can tell that Jabuticaba employs the same distribution methods, as any other adware application out there. In other words, it comes bundled with freeware. That is why there is a good chance that Jabuticaba is just one of the many unwanted applications currently running on your system. Perform a full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner to locate other potential threats and terminate them all immediately.

We are not trying to imply that adware programs can cripple your computer or that they are extreme computer security threats. The problem is that they could be exploited by cyber criminals in malware distribution schemes, and they could be too intrusive for your liking. For example, Jabuticaba works by changing your default DNS settings, so when you set to remove this application, you will also have to restore your settings to avoid further redirections.

We provide instructions on how to restore your DNS settings below this article. To prevent similar programs from entering your computer in the future, you should stay away from unfamiliar websites and get yourself a powerful antispyware tool. A computer security program of your choice will keep your PC protected 24/7, and you will no longer have to worry about computer security issues.
