    What is Side Terms:

    Threat Classification: Adware/PUP

    Side Terms (a.k.a. SideTerms) is presented as a browser extension, that enhances user’s browsing experience by showing the related searches on the wide of the most visited web pages. Our malware experts ran some tests & found out, that the Side Terms is a rogue browser extension, often installed using suspicious software bundles, configured to use silent or stealth installation and which modifies some browser and system settings, which make the recovery of the system even harder. Furthermore, our malware researchers warned us, that the SideTerms is using intrusive ads delivery techniques and that’s why it should be classified as an Adware. Finally, our malware experts recommend all users, which are experiencing lots of intrusive Ads by Side Terms to check their systems for malware infections, as the appearance of these intrusive Ads by Side Terms is a clear sign of an active infection on the PC. Our malware expert concluded, that Ads by Side Terms are usually caused by a rogue browser extension, capable of infiltrating user computers without consent and when active it starts to display multiple intrusive ads on almost every web page, the user visits. Often most of these adware infections are using all the data, that could be collected, including all the URL visited by the user, the originating IP address (user’s IP address – location) all the information it could collect from the browser, which unfortunately could include usernames, passwords, form data + bank accounts, addresses and much more private browser data and the cookies and other data send by the remote site, which basically means – the entire traffic in both directions + all the saved browsing info. When the product collects this data, it actually keeps it and adware developers are often selling it to 3rd party companies, which will use it for their own marketing purposes! That’s why we strongly recommend all users to remove the Side Terms (or SideTerms) browser extension as soon as possible and to run a full system malware scan, using some recently updated, reputable anti-malware product, just like the SpyHunter4.
