    Is generating money from PPI Network/Service Legal? as it involves installing malware or trojan (generally)

    Like for example, this website is filled with fake download buttons -

    If it's illegal how come people doesn't seem to get into any trouble over it? Would love to hear your guys opinion on this matter.

    It installs adware, and they typically ask the user if they want to install it, user skips through installation & agrees. Installing without consent is where you'll get into trouble

    So you are saying anything that involves silent installation or without terms and conditions can get you in trouble.
    Well, what about these websites in particular tricking their user to download adware and not giving the required software in return which they initially came for? isn't it against the law?

    It's not because when the user will start the download, he will be totally aware of what he is installing, even if it's well hidden, there will be always a little checkbox "I'm agree to install xxx"

    Well I'm not sure, probably why it's enforced that the user must get what is promised. However, delivering a lookalike tool should be pretty fine. With basic function and no real ability to do anything it could always be said the method of exploit was 'patched' and as such the tool no longer works. So the user did infact get what they ask for, and it's not a paid product so they can't come back to you asking for a refund. They can uninstall, adware must provide option to uninstall I believe.

    This sounds the most reasonable and accurate. I'm sure the PPI from this pays well since movie pirators and other people tend to be impatient and misclick.

    Yes all this shit are immoral and dirty, all PPI networks require legit traffic, they hate proxy lol
    But they are asshole that infect people's computer with crappy adware and fucks people's computers. the only real way to get rid of them bundled software is reinstall your OS
    These idiots should not require legit traffic because they are criminals who screw people's computers and these networks make lots of money.
    Stupid networks you must accept the proxy traffic and in the end everyone will be happy :)
