Mp3juice virus is a phrase that is employed to describe an unwanted browser activity related to mp3juices.cc website on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and other web browsers. Users who visit the site are presented with a feature that allows them to convert video files to downloadable mp3 files seemingly for free. They can also mark which sources to use for their searches, including YouTube, Soundcloud, PromoDJ, Yandex, and others. While Mp3juice might seem like a useful service, it is essential to know that files that can be downloaded are often not only copyrighted, which is considered illegal. In some cases, users claimed that, instead of downloading a promised mp3 file, they instead received a suspicious .exe – which can easily be malicious.

Besides, Mp3juice virus may also be obtained during the browsing of the site, as it uses unsafe advertisement networks. These networks rarely check the safety of ads, so users might be redirected to scam, phishing, ad-filled, and even malware-laden websites. The best way to protect yourself from such activity is to employ ad-block extension on your web browser.

Technically, the developers of Mp3juice and other sites claim that they do no do anything illegal, is it is up to users to ensure that the links placed into its search engine are not copyrighted. In any case, the site operates a structure where copyright material owners should contact it via the “Special Rightholders Accounts” form for its termination, and Mp3juice does not put any effort into terminating such content automatically. Mp3juices virus authors explain:

In our discretion, we may give you a „Special Rightsholders Account” with which you will be permitted to provide a list of URLs in one easy format to have content or search results removed from our website.

Understandably, content creators cannot follow each of such websites in order to get their creations removed. Due to this, Mp3juice is filled with copyrighted content. While this might not seem like a big deal for users, it is important to know that possessing such material might be punishable by law, so it is highly discouraged. Note that the previous domain used for this conversion service was removed by UK's Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit in 2014. Nonetheless, developers shifted to the next one – mp3juices.cc.

If you do not care about copyrights, you should still know that visiting this website can pose a risk to your computer security.

For example, one of the users said that he was Mp3juice redirect led him to a fake Flash update prompt.

The truth is, all the music can be accessed via the mentioned websites, as long as the device has an internet connection. Of course, to get music for free, users will have to endure ads. Alternatively, using platforms like Spotify or Soundcloud is a solution as well – premium services will allow you to access all types of music without limitations and no ads.

Prevent the government from spying on you

As there is a growing debate in government about collecting users' data and spying on citizens, you should take a closer look at this issue and find out what shady ways of gathering information can be used to collect information about you. You need to browse anonymously if you want to avoid any government-initiated spying and tracking of information. 

You can enjoy secure internet browsing and minimize the risk of intrusion into your system if you use Private Internet Access VPN program. This VPN application creates a virtual private network and provides access to the required data without any content restrictions.

Control government and other third party access to your data and ensure safe web browsing. Even if you do not engage in illegal activities and trust your ISP, we recommend being careful about your security. You should take extra precautions and start using a VPN program.

Recover files damaged by a dangerous malware attack

Despite the fact that there are various circumstances that can cause data to be lost on a system, including accidental deletion, the most common reason people lose photos, documents, videos, and other important data is the infection of malware.

Some malicious programs can delete files and prevent the software from running smoothly. However, there is a greater threat from the dangerous viruses that can encrypt documents, system files, and images. Ransomware-type viruses focus on encrypting data and restricting users’ access to files, so you can permanently lose personal data when you download such a virus to your computer.

The ability to unlock encrypted files is very limited, but some programs have a data recovery feature. In some cases, the Data Recovery Pro program can help recover at least some of the data that has been locked by a virus or other cyber infection.
