- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
Sometimes even the smallest nuisance can develop into something nasty. Here we would like to talk a little bit about Exerciers.mobi. This adware server is not a malicious infection. It is more like a tool that can be used or abused by multiple third parties. The point is that if you see this address on your browser or if you get redirected to it all of the time, it probably means that your browser settings have been changed without your permission, or you simply did not notice it. Either, it is not that hard to get rid of Exerciers.mobi, but you need to be careful about an entire lot of other potential threats.
Since Exerciers.mobi is an adware server, it is not on your computer directly. You just get redirected to it. The constant redirections occur because of your browser settings. Now, how or why your browser settings have been modified? That depends on how you got exposed to this adware server. Our research suggests that this adware server usually comes from pop-ups or adware-based websites. What does it mean when we say that it comes from pop-ups? It means that random pop-ups that you encounter when you browse the web might modify your browser settings.
Does this sound too odd to be true? Perhaps. But think of all the annoying pop-ups that interfered with your web browsing sessions when you accessed various websites. If a particular pop-up came with a prompt, and you clicked Yes or OK without reading the prompt properly, the chances are that this is how you allowed Exerciers.mobi to modify your browser settings. Consequently, once the settings were modified, you must have been seeing tons of annoying commercial ads on your browser. So this is one way for Exerciers.mobi to reach you. The other way is through adware-based websites.
Adware-based websites are web pages that have a lot of commercial advertisements. They come in various forms. Some of them could be flashing there right in front of your eyes. Others might pop up into your screen when you click something on the site. Interacting with one of those ads may automatically change your browser’s settings, allowing Exerciers.mobi to display commercial content for you. In other words, this means that you have to be careful when you browse the web if you want to avoid such potential security threats (and you most certainly do).
So now that you always see Exerciers.mobi on your browser, does this mean you will get infected with malware soon? Not necessarily. On the other hand, you can be sure that your browser will be slower. Not to mention that the adware server might employ tracking cookies to check out what you like when you browse the Internet. For instance, if you often look for information on traveling to distant countries, Exerciers.mobi might eventually spam you with various hotel or travel ads. And while it might seem that this could make your life easier, that is quite far from the truth because we cannot be sure those ads are safe.
While Exerciers.mobi does not try to infect you with malware, the adware server also has no say in what kind of content gets promoted through its advertising space. So while it might seem that the ad could provide you with some useful information, by clicking it, you might end up on some dangerous website. In most cases, you should land on a page that indulges in fishy online marketing. In the worst case scenario, yes, you could get infected with malware. So the bottom line is that you should stop these redirections from ruining your day.
Since Exerciers.mobi is not physically on your computer, you need to address those browser modifications that redirect you to the site. Our research team says that the best to deal with it is to reset your default browser. You find the instructions for that below this description.
Aside from that, you should also scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner. There is a very good chance that you have multiple unwanted applications installed on your systems, so it is always better to be safe than sorry. If the full system scan locates more potential threats, be sure to remove them for good.
