Be aware of new adware (malware) and spam links we recently discovered that attempts to adapt to the style and or structure of general websites in broad.

Recent findings suggest that criminals may attempt to design and use essentially In text or in content adware that is expected to be distributed and spread the usual way adware is such as combo-malware via browser hijackers and and other methods.

A current instance we noticed indicates that WordPress plugins such as the WordPress Plugin Social Media Widget by Blinkwebeffects.com may be responsible for displaying similar advertisements for Payday loan type websites. After further study the WordPress social plugin called this URL http://i.aaur.net/i.php to display spam.

This is how the code may look on a browser:

We suspect this may be a sign of the way adware may progress in the future. If there is a term to describe this malware, it may possibly be titled camoware, as this new form of what appears to be adware, primarily may attempt to camouflage itself as legitimate pieces of a website, aside from advertisements.

Furthermore it is recommended to remove the WordPress Social Media Plugin Widget from your WordPress website, as the plugin will produce unethical advertisements.
