downloaddino.com ads virus

The downloaddino.com virus (also found as the Download Dino virus, downloaddino.com redirect, downloaddino.com pop-ups, or downloaddino.com ads virus, etc.) is a potentially malicious website that is used to display many forms of advertisements, including redirects to http://www.downloaddino.com webpages, pop-under advertisements, pop-up advertisements, and more.

Advertisements from and redirects to www.downloaddino.com may occur for a variety of reasons. For example, a user may redirect to a downloaddino.com advertisement if unwanted software and malware, including adware and browser hijackers are installed to a computer system and attached to popular internet browsers such as Google chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Internet Explorer as a browser add-on, browser helper object (BHO), and/or extension.

Redirects to www.downloaddino.com advertisements may also be the result of clicking suspicious third-party advertisements and links. In some cases a user may redirect to the downloaddino.com website due to clicking an advertisement and will be redirected to a webpage that says “The page at www.downloaddino.com says: WARNING! Please Install Update To Continue”  or “Please install Lightspark Player Pro to continue” in order to trick victims into installing unwanted software.
