How CrossBrowser infected your PC

CrossBrowser is obviously not a program, that user will not install intentionally. That’s why its developers use tricky methods to propagate this garbage. It may use jitney ad networks to show “necessary browser update” alerts on some websites and if you click on such pop-ups you will be infected with CrossBrowser. Or it can be installed with third-rate freeware like FastPlayerPro or others. Be careful installing any new program on your PC.
