Who creates Adware and how do the creators benefit from it?

The reason for adware creation is so the unsuspecting user, i.e. you, will be a part of a not so above the board website promotion. That’s right, you are being forcefully redirected to websites whose owners allegedly paid the malware creators so that they can promote said websites in a less than legal way. It doesn’t matter what the advertisement reads, the endgame here is you visiting a certain website. Why would they do such a thing you might ask. Well for starters it’s not that hard, adware is mostly similar with just the target website being the difference. Secondly for all we know this is cheaper than advertising in a proper way through Google Ads for example. There is a catch though and you should be alert and do your best to remove “Ads by Coupon Jumbo” Extension from your system as quickly as you can. The adware creators know that you will want to get rid of the virus sooner or later, that’s why roughly one third of the redirects you will be experiencing will not be towards the target website but to other websites where you might get infected by additional adware or even worse threats.
