jZip.com is the misleading website that promotes a suspicious program which offers file compressing and extraction. The domain shows deceptive claim that using the tool is virus-free since no adware, no spyware, or trojans will get on the machine after extracting the download. However, the direct download that is triggered on the page gets blocked by AV tools, indicating that the executable contains malicious script.
The site belongs to infamous provider Bandoo Media that has presented numerous apps added to browser hijackers, rogue tools, and adware categories. The most common way to spread such tools is by using software bundling and third party websites. The promoted tool is for free, but the trial version is for 45 days. After that, users get encouraged to pay for the shady app.
