What is ssl.gstatic.com?

What differences do they have when compared to Viruses? Now, it is important to comprehend that ssl.gstatic.com is classified as an browser hijacker, which isn’t a Virus. Most experts on this subject all agree that browser hijacker has enough differences to be differentiated from Viruses. Most notably it is in their degree of severity.

Viruses are considered High priority for removal, while browser hijacker is usually low-to-medium. This doesn’t mean that they should be ignored, in fact it’s quite the opposite. They can introduce more browser hijacker (or even malware) into your machine by tricking you into clicking on one of the ads they place. Most of the popular browsers like Chrome or Firefox are all subjected to these pieces of software.

Viruses have the tendency to alter your computer to a severe level, much more than what an browser hijacker would normally do. They not only replicate themselves on other files or even hard drivers, but they can sometimes be FUD (term meaning Fully UnDetectable by anti-virus software). When infected, the PCs are most commonly robbed from their resources such as RAM space, CPU time, disk space. They can also often access private information on your machine, which can vary from passwords to credit card information. Sometimes they aren’t as destructive, though. The general description is a piece of software that is self-replicating and installs itself without user consent.
