What is Outfire Browser:

Threat Classification: PUP/adware

According to the majority of the reputable security researchers Outfire Browser is a dubious browser application, build on Chromium base and that could easily fall into the Potentially Unwanted Program’s category, because of it questionable software bundle friends, however we don’t want to believe some world-class malware researchers and our own malware research team decided to take a very close look at this product. And guess what … no surprise – it was indeed a very deceptive application, which was very aggressive while trying to install itself, without any permission from the user or what so ever. Furthermore, because the Outfire Browser comes bundled with at lest several other highly suspicious products, all of which where already installed on the system without asking for permission or any other consent … After performing a thorough investigation, our security analysts came to the conclusion that Outfire Browser (a Chromium based browser) should be classified as a dangerous adware and/or a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). Our security experts also concluded that the Outfire Browser uses a mechanism to suppress the build-in Chromium browsers protection for malicious extensions, which actually makes it very easy for an attacker to gain access to your system and do whatever he/she wants. Once installed, the Outfire Browser could modify windows registry database and browsers’ settings, making the recovery much harder.
