What is PPCPlanet4U.com:

Threat Classification: Adware

If you computer starts showing you lots of the Pop-ups by PPCPlanet4U.com, claiming that your computer is at risk and you should call their “Not just tech support. People Support” at 1-888-523-8835, you should consider your computer infected by a dangerous malware. PPCPlanet4U.com has been classified as an extremely nasty browser hijacker, that is capable of infecting all the well-known browsers and to hijack and modify every web request by intercepting the http traffic and by injecting dangerous malicious code (like fake messages, telling you that your PC is at risk and you should call their toll-free support number, other sponsor links & ads or even spyware or ransomware code) into every web request. This basically means that your system has been deeply compromised and our malware specialists strongly recommend in such cases to immediately stop working and start cleaning the infected machine – by running a full system malware scan using our latest award winning anti-malware product, which could actually GUARANTEE the MALWARE INFECTION REMOVAL either by sending a Support Log from the infected machine (if it is capable of using the Internet) or by the Live One -on-One Technician Support Option either over the phone or over the remote desktop connection (which is recorded to make sure that the Support Technician haven’t done something wrong) – SpyHunter 4. Furthermore, our security geeks advise you to take a closer look at your private data like – credit card, debit card and all the other computer related online banking stuff statements and look for unusual purchases – you may still have enough time to get your money back if the cyber crooks took it!!! Of course, you should PERFORM THIS ONLY FROM A CLEAN COMPUTER!!! – And In the meanwhile – don’t download, buy or install ANYTHING from the PPCPlanet4U.com bogus website. Our malware security geeks took a very close look at the Tech Support Scam Pop-ups by PPCPlanet4U.com and they’ve concluded that all of these were generated by a malicious browser extension, installed on your system by using some questionable, shady, suspicious or even dangerous software bundle, that supposedly should deliver you some popular, free cool software program … along with several malware infections of course! Our security researchers came to the conclusion that this malicious browser extension has been designed and developed for one reason only – to earn some revenue for its developers. Furthermore, our security analysts concluded that this browser extension is capable of infiltrating computer systems without owners’ permission or their consent. Once installed the malware infection will get all of your private data including usernames, email addresses, SSNs, Real Names, Postal Addresses, Birthdays, passwords, Credit Card Information and/or other financial data or online bank account information, which later will be either sold or shared with some 3rd party companies, which then will use the data for marketing or other purposes. Our security researchers warned us that the PPCPlanet4U.com is a malicious website, used by hackers, attackers or cyber criminals or even cyber terrorists from everywhere to redirect traffic to their sponsor links and/or ads and earn revenue from it or to further spread malware infections. The adware uses silent or stealth installation methods and was probably contracted while the user has installed some infected software bundle, has started some suspicious or even dangerous P2P network download or was infected when he used not checked torrent download or of course has played some free online game or has installed some program from some suspicious or even dangerous porn site. Another possible way of infecting these PCs is to send an infected SPAM email or could be another active infection. The contamination way is actually of no importance, because the infection is active and we have to clean your computer – for further infections I assume your anti-malware software will take care about. Our security experts concluded that once activated, the malware infection will try to modify your browser settings and windows registry database, which will make the recovery even harder! PPCPlanet4U.com is a malicious website, used only by cyber criminals, black hat hackers, cyber crooks, cyber terrorists and/or malware creators. The adware is capable of displaying ads on random web pages, which could lead to websites design alterations, however it seems that the infection is compatible with all the well-known web browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Edge and Google Chrome.

Generally, users that have this particular adware and/or PUP installed on their systems might see various pop-up & pop-under browser windows, informing the victim that a Video Player is Ready for Download, Install Media Downloader, Infection was Detected, Please Install The New Java Update or Important Software Update, New Driver Updates are Released etc.. The PPCPlanet4U.com is set to display FAKE POP-UP ALERTS on the victim’s computer. Please note, that all these web alerts are FAKE! Actually, the main purpose of the PPCPlanet4U.com is to drive as much traffic as possible to certain domains, which then is converted to cash via one of the many online marketing platforms.

The possible distribution of PPCPlanet4U.com bundle varies but is not limited to – installing third-party toolbars, free PDF software, free Video editors or other free software products or downloading e-mail attachments etc..

The purpose of PPCPlanet4U.com is to attract more users to certain domains, so that the creators of such or similar adware could generate income from the online traffic, using one of the many online marketing platforms.
