It does not seem that Salus will neutralize the latest threats as it promises to do. It is because this program is classified as an advertising-supported application. According to our researchers, this program will display pop-ups, in-text ads, and shopping offers. We do not recommend clicking on them in any way because it is very likely that you will be routed to the websites full of malicious software. Salus will not only show ads instead of protecting your system from malware, but also track what you do on the web and record such relevant information as the websites you visit and the content you access. It is done in order to display relevant ads for you.
