Such promotions often have captions like ‘Powered by Ionanewsupdate.info’, ‘Brought to you by Ionanewsupdate.info’ or ‘Ads by Ionanewsupdate.info’.
It is important to note, that adware is programmed to display as many adverts as possible, and not to verify them. That being said, you might get rerouted to suspicious and even dangerous third-party websites, should you click on such shady promotions. What’s more, with each day the parasite stays on your computer unattended, it will increase the number of intrusive content on your browser. It will even get more and more aggressive, as time passes.

Adware is a parasite that is often underestimated by users. Make no mistake. This pest is not harmless. It can seriously damage your browser.
