What's interesting is that idp.alexa.51 is not a regular malware: it may either be an actual infection or a false-positive. Research results show that this threat often infiltrates the system during installation of various flash games (e.g., Plants vs. Zombies, SeaMonkey, and similar). Due to outdated anti-virus suite's database a legitimate application might be detected as a idp.alexa.51 threat. This is called false positive. After reading some forums, users may get informed that some applications are detected as idp.alexa.51 threat. For this reason, users may ignore it without even making sure whether its true or not. Cyber criminals intentionally take advantage of this - various potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) and even malware are being presented as idp.alexa....
