What is Browser Security:

Threat Classification: PUP/adware

Browser Security also known as Browser-Security is a browser extension/plugin, compatible with Firefox and Internet Explorer. Please note that the Firefox add-on could be downloaded from the Mozilla Store, although the Security-Browser appear not to be malicious, the IE plugin is distributed via “software bundles” only, that could contains malicious browser hijackers, adware infections, bad toolbars, other PUPs etc. The Browser-Security is classified as a PUP by our security experts. The Browser-Security claims to help you protect your computer and online security from phishing attacks, although the thing with the phishing attack (cyber criminals are sending fake emails, from all over the world, that you need to change your banking password and voila they’ve got it all) is that they change multiple times every second, and you need time to get more info to say – this is phishing email and this is not. So how Browser Security is capable of protecting your privacy and security from phishing is a bit unknown, however we recommend to avoid installing this piece of software on your computer. It is considered a PUP (potentially unwanted program) because of its dubious distribution method “bundling“. If your browser starts showing “Ads by Browser Security”, “Browser Security Ads”, “By Browser Security”, “Browser Security” or “Brought to you by Browser Security”, you should consider your computer infected.  The PUP is capable of regenerating over and over again, making the normal removal and uninstall procedure useless. It is known that it works just fine with all well-known browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

Generally, users that have it installed on their systems might see different pop-ups, banners, search suggestions, sponsored link advertisements displayed on popular pages. The search results could also being altered, displaying information loaded with spam and third-party advertising.

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

The purpose of Browser Security is to attract more users to certain domains so that the creators of such or similar adware or malware could generate income from the generated online traffic. Browser Security may use cookies and other relevant information to steal your personal details. That’s why this malware infection should not be left unattended and it needs to be terminated immediately, as it is a serious threat to your 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.
