According to our researchers, Qipapp gets distributed through bundled software installers you have downloaded from free sharing sites. Software bundling is a common distribution method amongst unwanted programs since the free sharing site does not disclose the additional attached suspicious software when you download the bundle. And so suspicious programs like Qipapp gets installed along with the software you want to install. To prevent that from happening, you should always opt for the advanced or custom settings whenever you install software from free sharing site rather than the automatic installation, to prevent malicious programs from getting installed as well.
