How to remove Ads by LUDASHI

 

What is LUDASHI:

Threat Classification: Adware/PUP

If you noticed, that your web browser has started showing lots of unwanted irritating web Ads by LUDASHI, our malware researchers and security consultants strongly recommends you to run a malware scan on your computer using an up-to-date, reputable & reliable anti-malware software product, like the SpyHunter 4. Our security experts came to the conclusion, that the LUDASHI Ads are caused by malicious browser extension called LUDASHI, which is fully capable of infiltrating various computer systems without owner’s consent or any other permission. After multiple tests and experiments, our malware research team found out, that this malware infection has being designed and developed especially with money-making in mind! The Ludashi Ads creates a virtual browser window using a combination of Iframes and JavaScript and injecting the HTML code (the actually sponsored ads and/or links, which convert traffic to money) directly over your web browser’s window and clicking somewhere on your browser window actually clicks on the virtual layer, that is above your window … Further tests, our security researchers were able to detect how the adware collects all kinds of private browsing information from the victim’s computer (including Web Searches, Browsing History & Information, Usernames & Passwords, E-mail addresses, Cookies, Location History, Names, SSN, Credit Card information and/or other private financial information and even online banking accounts information) and how it actually pull the private data over the Internet to their servers, where it will be stored until they sell it or share it with some other 3rd party company, which will use the data for their own marketing purposes. Our security experts warned us, that even though LUDASHI claims to provide many useful & handy features, it was classified as a dangerous adware and/or a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) by the majority of the reputable malware researchers around the world. The dangerous software product has a malicious browser extension, distributed mainly via suspicious or even questionable software bundles, often configured to install the LUDASHI by default using silent or stealth mode, hiding it from the users. This kind of adware has been used by malware developers to generate income by showing sponsor links or ads on almost every web page, requested by the victim. If your display starts getting overflown by these annoying ads “by LUDASHI” , “Ads by LUDASHI”, “LUDASHI Ads”, “Ad by LUDASHI”, “Powered by LUDASHI”, “Brought by LUDASHI”, “Optimized by LUDASHI” or “Brought to you by LUDASHI” – you should consider your computer infected by the LUDASHI adware. Please note, that these ads, shown by the LUDASHI extension should NOT BE considered SAFE and we strongly recommend you to avoid interaction and/or clicking them! After performing multiple tests and experiments, our malware researchers came to the conclusion that LUDASHI works fine with all the well-known web browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome.

Generally, users that have it installed on their computers might experience various pop-up or pop-under ads, coupon boxes, banners, search suggestion windows, sponsored link advertisements or other commercials, displayed on almost all requested web pages. Please note, that the search results should be considered compromised as well, usually filled with 3rd party advertising and SPAM.

LUDASHI is usually bundled with some other free ad-supported software products and is being installed by default while performing an express/default installation, right after the user accepts the EULA. That’s why we strongly recommend you to always opt-out and use custom installation if possible and if it’s available, you should always deselect/exclude all the unwanted software programs from the bundle installation process. You should leave selected (included) for installation only the initially requested software. The possible distribution of LUDASHI varies but is not limited to – installing 3rd party toolbars, free software products, video editing software, various multimedia codecs, downloading e-mail attachments, clicking suspicious ads or banners etc.

The main goal of LUDASHI is to generate as much web traffic as possible, that could easily be monetized via one of the many online marketing platforms. Please note, that the creators of that or similar adware will collect private information from your computer, that might be used to track your browsing habits, IP addresses, Bookmarks, Usernames, Passwords and even financial information, however often they collect much more than just that. That’s why this infection should not be left unattended and needs to be terminated immediately, as it presents a serious threat to your online, personal and financial safety.

!!! Please note, that these infections could potentially bring up other malware to your computer and even cause data loss. Please, do not underestimate such threats!!!
