SuperWeb LLC Just rolled out a new adware application called Special Box that will “excite” users everywhere, as it is going to continue the legacy created by all of its previous clones. We will also continue saying that you should always remove adware apps no matter how innocent they may appear. Clearly, there is nothing special about Special Box, as it only displays commercial advertisements provided by all kinds of shady entities. Nevertheless, the app is also known to have the ability to collect sensitive information about the user. Therefore, you should remove Special Box at your earliest convenience and save yourself the trouble of dealing with even more dangerous threats.
By dangerous threats we mean malware, which might infect your PC if you click an unreliable ad provided by Special Box. The content displayed by the adware usually comes as pop-ups, coupons, banners, in-text ads, and so on. This program should not be trusted, as its developers do not endorse the content that they sponsor. The developers at SuperWeb are obliged to conduct business with all kinds of unreliable third parties who may turn out to be cyber criminals.
Schemers and cyber criminals often utilize adware apps to display fake ads in order to infect computers with malware such as Trojans and fake antimalware scanners that are intended to extort money from their victims. Some malware might encrypt your files and demand money in exchange for a decryption program which might never be delivered. In some cases the malware might entirely lock your computer, denying you access until you pay the creators. So, the threat is very real, and the consequences of allowing Special Box to remain on your computer could be detrimental. Therefore, we recommend that you remove Special Box not only because it might infect your PC with malware, but also because it might collect information about you.
Special Box poses a threat for personal privacy by collecting information about you by utilizing browser cookies. The app might gather information such as IP addresses, browsing history, search history, browser settings, and so on. Therefore, you should not tolerate such actions and remove it because there is no way of knowing for what purpose such information might be used.
To summarize this article, we can only affirm that Special Box is an unreliable program that you should remove, because it displays unreliable advertisements that could infect your computer with malware. In addition, the adware collects information, which is very disturbing and should not be tolerated. We recommend that you remove it using our manual removal guide below.
