How to remove Ads by LUDASHI
What is LUDASHI:
Threat Classification: Adware/PUP
Generally, users that have it installed on their computers might experience various pop-up or pop-under ads, coupon boxes, banners, search suggestion windows, sponsored link advertisements or other commercials, displayed on almost all requested web pages. Please note, that the search results should be considered compromised as well, usually filled with 3rd party advertising and SPAM.
LUDASHI is usually bundled with some other free ad-supported software products and is being installed by default while performing an express/default installation, right after the user accepts the EULA. That’s why we strongly recommend you to always opt-out and use custom installation if possible and if it’s available, you should always deselect/exclude all the unwanted software programs from the bundle installation process. You should leave selected (included) for installation only the initially requested software. The possible distribution of LUDASHI varies but is not limited to – installing 3rd party toolbars, free software products, video editing software, various multimedia codecs, downloading e-mail attachments, clicking suspicious ads or banners etc.
The main goal of LUDASHI is to generate as much web traffic as possible, that could easily be monetized via one of the many online marketing platforms. Please note, that the creators of that or similar adware will collect private information from your computer, that might be used to track your browsing habits, IP addresses, Bookmarks, Usernames, Passwords and even financial information, however often they collect much more than just that. That’s why this infection should not be left unattended and needs to be terminated immediately, as it presents a serious threat to your online, personal and financial safety.
!!! Please note, that these infections could potentially bring up other malware to your computer and even cause data loss. Please, do not underestimate such threats!!!
