How does Okiitan work?

Whether you have downloaded Okiitan yourself or it was installed without your permission, the first question you should ask is who stands behind it? Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers have found out that SuperWeb LLC is the developer of the extension. Other browser plugins created by the company include WebGet, PlurPush, KingBrowse, BrowseBurst, Fortunitas, Surftatic, etc. These applications are considered to be unreliable because they are supported by undisclosed parties. If you check the Privacy Policy linked to any of these programs, you will discover that third parties serve the advertisements, offers and saving deals which Okiitan is meant to produce. This means that clicking on the presented ‘Best Coupons! by Okiitan’ will enable the services of third parties.

Third party affiliates and Okiitan

As malware researchers have discovered, Okiitan is often linked to Brothersoft because the Brothersoft Installer can be used to promote and distribute the extension. It is possible that the developers of the installer will earn money for every successful Okiitan installation. Needless to say, the relationship between the developers of the plugin and the third-party advertisers is based on the financial gain as well. Companies pay money to the advertisers to have their products promoted, and advertisers pay money to the creators of advertisement supported programs to have a platform which could be used to display ads and offers. Cyber criminals are aware of these complicated relations and have the tricks necessary to get in the middle. Note that suspicious third party ads could belong to schemers.
