Even if you recognize that these new tab pop-ups are just a scam and won’t interact with them, that does not mean that your PC is not in danger. Confirmprize.com Pop-Ups are very persistent and ready to do whatever they can, to Get your private information and get into your browser so that crooks could alter the settings and modify the content you see online, to their benefit. If you don’t want to have a malfunctioning search engine and spread your sensitive data, then it would be best if you not wait any longer and get rid of the Confirmprize.com virus as soon as possible.

What is Confirmprize.com Pop-up

Confirmprize.com pop-up is not a virus, as most people say, yet what is it then? This Confirmprize.com threat is actually a pop-up message that simply offers to give you the newest iPhone and Samsung for a ridiculously small amount (1$) if you only answer some personal questions and click on a few links. Sounds too good to be true? Because it is. Confirmprize.com is a consequence of another infection in your PC, which right now is trying to profit from the user getting one’s personal information or gaining control over the browser. At the moment, The Netherlands, Italy, UK, Czech Republic, Australia, Belgium are the main countries which Confirmprize.compop-up affected the most.

Despite online users becoming more aware of such pop-up scams (like Invictioner.club,topgetfree.com, favor1t.com, studientede.club, hidderswera.club) and closing the message as soon as it appears, Confirmprize.com has already victimized plenty of people because of their slick tricks. Apart from looking very appealing and playing with the ‘What if it’s true’ users’ mentality, Confirmprize.com threat developers made sure to enhance the page with malicious scripts (What is XSS) that will launch no matter where on the pop-up screen you will click. So even if you were trying to close the annoying message but landed clicking slightly lower, you can end up infected too.

Such persistence is needed to place and replace online ads, from all the websites, which are making revenue for their owners and true content creators with the ones from Pop-ads network, that Confirmprize.com has affiliate ties. (How affiliate marketing was used to spread malware). That means that all the clicks and views will generate income only for Confirmprize.com virus. It the invasion is done successfully then the Confirmprize.com pop-ups can appear even more often and ads can be placed without the limit, distorting the regular website’s layout, and your personal information collected not only from what you enter yourself through the compromised system but also from the browsing history as well.

While the main information that benefits crooks is your search queries and visited pages, bought items, which can be sold to third-party marketers, which later use this data to alter promotions you see and search results you get when browsing something (Targeted advertising), the other info about your location, banking details, logins and passwords and etc, can be used against you too resulting in identity theft, robbery, leaked data and etc. Clearly, there is nothing positive about Confirmprize.com pop-up virus.

How does Confirmprize.com virus spread

Confirmprize.com Pop-Up has Many tricks upon its sleeve when it comes to infecting systems. The more compromised machines and the more visits and clicks it gets, the more money it earns, therefore there are no boundaries for Confirmprize.com virus developers how to get in. It can be the typical infection from the malicious ad, Which can sometimes find its way through even without a click, or it can be from a rogue software which Confirmprize.com paid to distribute their site.  Right now the most referrals come from ads that are posted on Youtube, Badoo, and Pinterest, as well as www5.mylot.com, filmlandempire.com, www2.gorillavid.in, gall-tarquin.com, dnckawxatc.com. So be careful when using these sites or else you’ll end up with Confirmprize.com pop-ups.

As well as this Confirmprize.com Pop-up causing virus can sneak into some freeware bundle you got online from some shady P2P network or Shareware distributor, which does not care about malware being compiled together with legitimate software. There has been a lot of controversy about the freeware sites, because of their inappropriate behavior, but they are still running and luring in unware users. Skipping through the Setup Wizard is something that we all admittedly do, but it is important to change that and actually pay attention to what programs do you want to add from the Custom mode. Never do Recommended installation mode because all of the sponsored products will be marked by the default to install at once with the main program. Therefore, never underestimate this.
