Reports say the threat is currently most popular in Japan and Indonesia, but we have no doubt it could show up in other countries as well. Adware applications are often spread through unreliable pop-up ads or bundled software installers, so it is easy to receive it unknowingly. Not so cautious users usually pick automatic installation setting after launching a setup file and if they wish to rush the process they just click the “Next” or other buttons without even reading all terms and conditions. Unfortunately, if the installer is bundled with other programs, picking advanced installation settings might be the only way have a chance to deselect these suggestions. Otherwise, they could be added automatically without further notice. Therefore, if you would like to stay away from adware or other threats that might redirect you to Aptitudemedia.co or other unreliable web pages with third-party ads, we recommend being more cautious in the future.
