What is Bul.closesspirally.com:

Threat Classification: Adware

If your system has been infected with the Bul.closesspirally.com malware, you will start getting almost immediately lots and lots of Fake Pop-ups or Redirects by Bul.closesspirally.com. If you saw the Bul.closesspirally.com website, it is almost sure that your PC has been infected by this malware. In this case, we strongly advise you to perform a full scan for malware using our latest, award winning anti-malware product – SpyHunter 4. Our security consultants have warned us that Bul.closesspirally.com is a deceitful website, which tries to confuse its victims into thinking, that some part of the victim’s software is outdated – either Java Player, Flash Player, some browser or it may tell you that you need to download some Video Codec update or your Media Downloader needs to be updated, however as you already find out – all of these claims are FAKE. This is just another malicious trick, often used by the malware developers and malware distributors, to try and make the victims believe, that their system is at risk, because of outdated software, which is one big lie! After performing a deeper review, our malware researchers found out, that the Pop-ups & Redirects by Bul.closesspirally.com are caused by a malicious browser extension, installed on the PC by some software bundle, that supposedly have delivered some free and popular program, however the bundle was configured to install the browser extension in silent or stealth mode, right after the victim agrees with the software bundle EULA! Once installed the malware infection will make several changes to the browsers’ settings and the registry database, making the recovery even harder. The malware also starts to collect private data including usernames, email addresses, browsing history, browsing locations, SSNs, Real Names, Postal Addresses, Birthdays, passwords, Credit Card Information and/or other financial data or online bank account information. Later this private data will be sold to some 3rd party companies, which will use it for their own marketing purposes. Our security consultants concluded that Bul.closesspirally.com is a dangerous and malicious website, used only by cyber crooks, black-hat hackers and other cyber criminals, in order to hijack the victim’s web traffic and redirect it to their sponsor links and ads or to spread further malware infections. The Bul.closesspirally.com malware works just fine with all the well-known browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Edge and Google Chrome.

Generally, users that have this particular adware and/or PUP installed on their systems might see various pop-up & pop-under browser windows, informing the victim that a Video Player is Ready for Download, Install Media Downloader, Infection was Detected, Please Install The New Java Update or Important Software Update, New Driver Updates are Released etc.. The Bul.closesspirally.com is set to display FAKE POP-UP ALERTS on the victim’s computer. Please note, that all these web alerts are FAKE! Actually, the main purpose of the Bul.closesspirally.com is to drive as much traffic as possible to certain domains, which then is converted to cash via one of the many online marketing platforms.

Bul.closesspirally.com 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. That’s why, you should be very careful what you agree to install and always opt-out for a custom installation and skip or deselect the software you don’t want to install or you are not familiar with. The possible distribution of Bul.closesspirally.com bundle varies but is not limited to – installing third-party toolbars, free PDF software, free Video editors or other free software products or downloading e-mail attachments etc..

The purpose of Bul.closesspirally.com is to attract more users to certain domains, so that the creators of such or similar adware could generate income from the online traffic, using one of the many online marketing platforms.
