Do you know what Movie2k Ads is?
According to our cyber security experts, Movie2k Ads is an adware server that can appear on your computer if your PC is infected with malware or you get redirected to it from other websites. Researchers say that it can also be presented as a pop-up ad. Regardless of how it is disseminated, it always promotes a particular website that is unreliable. Therefore, we recommend that you remove the malware that redirects you to it or do not visit the websites that promote it. Above all, do not visit it and attempt to purchase the offered services.
Now let us go in some more detail regarding its distribution. Movie2k operates via web scripts and, therefore, it can be distributed with or without an application. Our malware analysts say that certain shady websites can feature a link to this server and it can pop up as a separate window while you browse the web. Some websites can open it as a new tab when you click a link on the specific website. Above all, this adware server can come with a browser extension or an executable application that will make sure to load this server or redirect you to it at random while you browse the web.
Movie2k Ads is hosted on Movie2k.io that is similar to movie4.is and movie4.to. All of them have been set up by the same people, and all of them are equally untrustworthy. The aforementioned similar websites allow you to play movies, but they load pop-ups that promote online gambling websites and sites with adult content that can be harmful and lead to further personal problems. Movie2k.io is also presented as a website that allows you to watch movies, but the movies are not free. If you click any of the movie titles, then Movie2k.io will redirect you to a website that will require you to create an account. Creating the account will require you to provide your email address and create a password. On top of that, that website will require you to provide your credit card information which we do not recommend that you do because you may be tricked and the people behind this website might steal your money.Movie2k Ads screenshot

Movie2k.io may collect some personal information about you if you provide it. It may ask you for your real name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, and, as mentioned earlier, credit card information. All of this information may be used for marketing and advertising purposes, but you should not trust this website either way.
Movie2k Ads is nothing more than an adware server dedicated to promoting Movie2k.io, a website that claims to offer online movies, but first requires you to register and provide your credit card information. On top of that, this program’s creators can collect and store some personal information about you. If you value your online security and privacy, then please do not neglect this problem and remove Movie2k Ads as soon as you can. Check to see if there is no shady browser extension or application present on your PC. Furthermore, it would be a good idea to scan your PC with an anti-malware program.
