- Via an online advertisement – dangerous sites often have Ads that will download viruses or Trojans if interacted with. Google keeps a white list of “safe” Ads, but if you venture into a site that uses its own Ads you are on your own
- Hidden in the installer of another program – this method is familiar to the so-called software bundling. You’ll install a program via its installer, but unbeknown to you other programs will be installed alongside in the background. This danger can be minimized by avoiding to download programs from unsafe locations as torrents and Warez sites.
