What is Secure Web?

Distributed from Big Water Applications, LLC (which is really part of Injekt, LLC/Create Island Media), Secure Web is an advertising injector web browser extension that will deliver various ad formats into the user's browser. "Applications may be supported by advertising, which may include display ads (banner ads), text ads, in-text ads (e.g. keyword highlighting), interstitial ads, pop up ads, pop under ads, or other types of ads. Users may see additional ads when using their Internet browser or other software applications." The software will also modify the standard operating proceedures of the user's browser; "So that Applications can function most efficiently and with the least annoyance and to enable all Application features, Applications may modify or disable certain web browser or operating system features including, but not limited to load time alerts, accelerator features, network proxy settings, firewall settings, DNS settings, and Content Security Policy functionality."

In your downloads or upgrades, watch out for TubeDimmer, Websteroids and Secure Web run by Steve Iverson of Creative Island Media LLC located at 640 Grand Ave, Carlsbad, CA 92008. They're attached to well known upgrades!! The bastards caught me!! Guys like Iverson should be held accountable for scamming and deceit!!
