What is BestVideoConverter:

Threat Classification: PUP/adware

BestVideoConverter or BestVideoConverter Ads is described as a great tool, capable of converting various audio and video formats. The Best Video Converter has been developed by the Fantastic Tech company. Recently, the BestVideoConverter app has been classified as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) and adware as well. It was classified as an adware and a PUP, mainly because it uses a deceptive distribution technique called “bundling“. Furthermore, the developers of the BestVideoConverter have coded a silentstealthy installation procedure, which could install the application without user’s consent. The installation is performed even without user’s agreement & knowledge.  The “bundle” model, combines several free ad-supported software products into a single software bundle. BestVideoConverter could silently infiltrate your browsers and it will start showing various unwanted advertisements on almost every webpage you visit. Once installed, the BestVideoConverter adware quickly corrupts victim’s browser settings, making the recovery even harder. If your computer start showing various web ads, claiming that they are – “By BestVideoConverter”“Ads by BestVideoConverter”, “BestVideoConverter Ads”, “Powered by BestVideoConverter”, “Brought by BestVideoConverter” or “Brought to you by BestVideoConverter” – you should consider your computer compromised (infected). Tjhe BestVideoConverter seems to be compatible with all the well-known browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

Generally, users that have it installed on their systems might experience various pop-up or pop-under ads, coupon boxes, banners, search suggestion windows, sponsored link advertisements or other commercials, displayed on popular web pages. The victim should consider, that the search results are compromised as well, most likely overloaded with spam and other third-party advertising.

BestVideoConverter is usually bundled with some other free ad-supported software products and is being installed by default, when the user accepts the EULA, while performing an express/recommended installation of that software bundle. The possible distribution of BestVideoConverter varies, but is not limited to – installing third-party toolbars, free software products, video editing software, codecs, downloading e-mail attachments, clicking on ads or banners etc..

The main purpose of BestVideoConverter is to generate as much traffic as possible to certain domains, which could easily be monetized via one of the many online marketing platforms. Please note, that the creators of such or similar adware or malware would collect information to track your browsing habits, however often they collect much more than your web search history. BestVideoConverter may use tracking cookies and other relevant techniques, that could be used to collect personal data like login information, usernames, passwords, financial information including credit card numbers and bank account statements etc. That’s why this malware infection should not be left unattended, and needs to be terminated immediately, as it is a serious threat to your private data and online security.

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