Not only Adnooka but Sharecash already made an announcement about this problem.

Quote:Ransomware is an extremely illegal and malicious method of illicit promotion, where the offender tricks the user into executing a malware-infected file. This file locks your computer and you are forced to complete a survey to unlock it.

This method of promotion is highly illegal, strongly against our Terms of Service, and taken very seriously. Any users attempting to use such a promotional method must immediately stop their traffic and be aware that our ban policy will strictly be enforced. Advertisers are screening for such traffic and many are considering legally prosecuting offenders.

Furthermore, you are not allowed to promote any form of Wifi Hacking Tools. Advertisers are facing regulatory issues regarding these types of niches and are cracking down heavily on such promotions. If you have uploaded any such tools, please delete them immediately.

indeed, but the way it works is used for example by:
delta-search.com/

of course it's not ransomware, but it could be named malware. as delta-search is being installed stealthy when u install some other programs (maybe codecs, ect..)
and then delta-search is changing your Firefox startup page.
instead of firefox/google search u have now a dealt-search. and whatever u search in in delta-search is "tweaked" so that u r bing redirect to offers, from which delta-search is earning $$$.


is it legal ?
atm YES. and just look at alexa status:
alexa.com/siteinfo/delta-search.com#trafficstats

delta-search is very high in these rankings, in every country.

It's good they have finally started taking action against such promotional methods as this is seriously hurting the industry.
