Web.longfintuna.net is known to install to a computer and attach to an internet browser without consent from the computer user or under their inadvertently conscious. It is distributed via two means, one is via the implanted tracking cookies on some websites, and the pop-ups claiming from Web.longfintuna.net only display only when you land on the website that cooperate with Web.longfintuna.net, and the other way is to change your host files in order to let Web.longfintuna.net displaying ads no matter when you go.
