Activities.aliexpress.com is the deceptive site that supposedly resembles the online shopping page that is related and used as an adware-type program. The page redirects users to other websites without any permissions and generates revenue from views and page visits. Various banners, pop-ups, blinking boxes, and similar commercial content keeps from accessing normal material on the screen.
The page itself is injected with adware programs or misused by the potentially unwanted program developers, so clicks on activities.aliexpress.com cause redirects to other ad-supported sites or pop-ups, banners, blinking boxes appearing on the screen out of nowhere. Then the page and additional material can deceive people into visiting pages filled with malicious material or scripts that trigger downloads of toolbars, optimization utilities, other PUP products.
Tons of advertisements marked using “Waiting for activities.aliexpress.com”, “Transferring data from activities.aliexpress.com”, “Looking up activities.aliexpress.com”, “Read activities.aliexpress.com”, or similar message indicates the source of the advertisements.
