Mobile applications, especially those distributed for free, often include behavior or components for displaying third-party advertising content. This is done as an alternative form of revenue for the software developers, who would otherwise have to charge users for the application itself.
If a user is unaware of the 'ad-supported' nature of such programs, they may cause considerable annoyance. If use of the program outweighs the inconvenience of having ads displayed, the user may elect to keep the program installed.
F-Secure Security Cloud is a cloud-based threat analysis system that maintains a security rating for common programs, files and websites.
When an F-Secure security product encounters a suspect program or file, it sends a query over the Internet to the Security Cloud and checks for the latest rating available for the program (that is, whether it has already been rated as 'safe' or 'harmful'). Based on the rating, the security product may then either quarantine the suspect file, block it or allow it to proceed.
