As soon as you download this ‘game’, every time you visit a website you will notice a black pane at the top of the page. If you click this pane a menu will show up and you will be able to choose to start a new game. Once activated, the game will allow you to visually destroy the page you view and even earn point while you are at it. Of course, the plugin offers fun, enjoyable services; however, it is recommended to have Websteroids deleted to avoid potentially undesirable activity. Do you understand why exactly you should delete this application?
It has been revealed that the suspicious Websteroids can be downloaded in two ways. It can be acquired from its official download page websteroidsapp.com which is supported by Creative Island Media, LLC. It could also be installed accidentally when installing bundled software. It is notable that in some cases the application is distributed by unreliable parties who may package adware, keyloggers and other malignant applications. In this case, the components of the online gaming program could be modified, so that other processes could be carried out and that the undesirable application could regenerate after being removed. Nonetheless, most computer users are dealing with the application installed from its official source, and this does not mean that the situation is any better. As our researchers have discovered, the suspicious game is supported through third party advertisers who may present a number of irritating advertisements when browsing the web. Since these parties are unfamiliar, it is impossible to say where the displayed ads could route you to, meaning that clicking on them is not recommended.
