Global Consumer Survey

4 posts in this topic

I got infected with the above here's what internet say about it:


"Global Consumer Survey virus is classified as an adware which is used for commercial purposes by spammers. This application can integrate with Firefox, Chrome and Internet explorer or other famous web browsers but whats more troublesome, it can infect your computer without your knowledge. When you download free-ware programs from Internet, you are most likely to get infected by this kind of malware.

Once infected, you,ll see Global Consumer Survey pop-ups on your screen that will ask you to answer a few questions to complete an online survey. As we know, those are paid surveys that will earn profit for the creators of “Global Consumer Survey malware”, while you,ll get no advantage. Apart from displaying spammy popups on your computer, Global Consumer Survey virus is used to track your web interests and to collect your personal information for hackers. You should not ignore Global Consumer Survey popups appearing on your system, take immediate action to stop this malware."


I have "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO" installed and it cannot find this adware or virus.


Anybody have heard of this?


Thanks in advance
