Category: PUPs

A potentially Unwanted Program, abbreviated as PUP, is a software that may be unwanted on your computer. It installs toolbars and has unpredictable purposes about your computer.

PUP is slightly not the same as malware as it doesn’t have a goal to destroy your operating system or steal sensitive information. In most cases PUPs are marketing tools that get to your computer with the help of social engineering.

However, PUPs might be harmful for your computer as they contain adware, spyware and dialers, that aim to disturb your privacy and irritate you.

The main diverse between PUP and malware is that the first one is downloaded with users agreement. In other words, PUP is almost legal as people give them a permission for installation. This situation is common for those, who want to download a program from the Internet, but refuse to read the download requirements. As usual, malicious software is attached to the program that users want. Thus, both get to your computer, and people fail to know what else has been obtained.
