Jokerlivestream.com Promises Live Sports Streams, but May Also Infect Your Computer with Threats
Jokerlivestream.com is yet another suspicious website that purports to offer free sports streaming services. We want to be clear in stating that viewing such content is illegal, as the content being streamed is copyrighted material, and you may potentially land in legal trouble if your Internet Service Provider detects illegal activities. Engaging with these sites may also put your computer at risk, as they may be used to distribute threats.
Jokerlivestream.com could potentially come bundled with an app that may affect popular web browsers, including Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and potentially Safari, and may also flood them with annoying advertisements. Jokerlivestream.com might also lead to excessive ads within your browser.
Jokerlivestream.com might show a pop-up asking to enable notifications. Enabling them would permit those behind the unreliable website to continue showing suspicious, potentially misleading advertisements even after you leave it. Be aware that careless interaction with these ads could lead to potentially unreliable websites, putting your virtual security in further danger.
Ironically, Jokerlivestream.com doesn’t even actually host any sports streams. Instead, when users attempt to open one of the streams, they might be taken to an alternative page with a fake video player and a countdown. When that countdown reaches zero, the users will likely see a pop-up telling them to sign up for a premium membership to access the stream. We highly recommend never providing a random website with your payment information and personal details, especially when paying for illegally distributed media.
In addition to using false advertising and offering fake services, Jokerlivestream.com might also send you to shady websites which may make fake offers, attempt to push more unwanted and annoying software on you or expose you to Trojans, ransomware or potentially unwanted programs. To avoid having your files encrypted by ransomware or seeing your system corrupted by Trojans, we advise you to not click on ads introduced via such illicit websites as Jokerlivestream.com and remove any ad-generating software (also known as adware) you may have obtained to avoid exposure to unsafe software or scams.
