Static.brit-method.com is a corrupted website. The domain is a pawn of a rogue program. The tool in question is adware.

What makes the adware behind Static.brit-method.com dangerous?
The adware behind Static.brit-method.com conducts malicious operations. Performing the scheduled tasks exerts a lot of virtual memory (CPU). Your computer will become sluggish and unable to fulfill your requests. This is the first sign about the presence of the rogue tool. The next indication is the ad flow. Advertising is the main monetizing method for the adware behind Static.brit-method.com. The clandestine program supports the content of third parties who pay for this service. It displays adverts, containing shopping offers.
In the attempt to acquire users’ interest, the adware focuses on exclusive deals for high quality goods. The product palette encompasses various items, including clothes, accessories, technological devices, furniture, decorative elements, gardening equipment, sports gear, games, toys and many others. The formats of the advertisements are just as diverse. The adware behind Static.brit-method.com displays pop-ups, pop-unders, in-text links, banners, coupon boxes, freebies, transitional, interstitial, floating, contextual, inline, comparison and full-page ads. As enticing as the suggested offers may be, keep in mind that the ads redirect to websites with unconfirmed security. They could be dangerous to visit.
The adware behind Static.brit-method.com has another ability, apart from generating advertisements. The insidious program can monitor your sessions and record the information you enter into your web browser. This includes your browsing history, tracking cookies, keystrokes, IP address, email, country of origin, zip code, phone number, login credentials and financial details. The gathered input is stored into catalogs and sold on the darkweb. It could fall into the hands of cyber criminals.
How is the adware behind Static.brit-method.com distributed?
The adware behind Static.brit-method.com can enter your machine in a couple of ways. The preferred penetration technique is bundling. The secluded tool can latch onto another program and get installed together with it. The possible hosts include freeware, shareware and pirated versions of paid utilities. The download client will have the adware listed as a bonus tool. You have to find the option for it and deselect it. If you do not, it will get installed together with your program of choice. We advise you to select the custom or advanced installation mode when running the wizard. This will show all options.
The other propagation vector for the adware behind Static.brit-method.com is spam email campaigns. The secluded program is transferred via attachments. The host will be presented as a document on an urgent matter, like a receipt, an invoice, a bill, a fine or a subpoena. The sender will introduce himself as a representative of an existing company or organization to lead you astray. It is advised to proof the identity of the sender before taking actions. To check whether the person is who he claims to be, look up the contacts from the message. You can visit the official website of the referenced entity and check its coordinates. The email address is the best indication. A spammer will have created a fake account.
