Remember that reputable internet stores seldom advertise through shady channels such as s0.2mdn.net Virus. Any site the Ads link it could be some obscure 3rd world site at best or something virus infected or bent on scamming you at worst. There may be legitimate sites sprinkled in the mix as well – to add a sense of fake legitimacy to the Ads. We STRONGLY recommend that you ignore the Ads altogether.
If it doesn’t get you through its conventional Ads the s0.2mdn.net may try to get you via a whole different strategy. A virus infected executable may be presented to you for download under the guise of free software. A scare tactic may also be employed – Ads that look exactly like system messages and claim different problems.
