How does Vid Adblock work?

Vid Adblock used to be represented via; however, just like all of its clones, this adware is now spread via software bundles. The websites representing Justplugit adware were disabled or were never set up, and this is likely due to the fact that the developers of these programs want the users to know as little about them as possible. Due to the same reason, these programs have different names – or different versions of the same name, to be exact – and this stops many users from finding useful information about Vid Adblock or similar programs. Of course, computer users should research the software they want to install beforehand, but not all users are that careful. In fact, most users first learn about this adware unexpectedly when installing LightningDownloader or some other potentially unwanted program that might come bundled with and browser hijackers from the Websearch family. Needless to say, all programs associated with adware – whichever way they are associated – deserve your attention and, possibly, removal.

The reason our researchers identify Vid Adblock as a security threat is because this ad-supported program injects ads that belong to unreliable parties and that are hosted via unreliable adware servers. Even if the ads shown to you appear to be harmless, there are no guarantees that they will not expose you to phishing scams, drive-by download attacks, and cyber-criminal activity. If you are smart enough to want to avoid these risks, there is only one thing you need to do.
