What is Mustang Browser:

Threat Classification: PUP/adware

Mustang Browser is a browser, that is a Chromium-based one. It uses the same engine – as the Google Chrome – so in terms of speed and performance they should be identical. Users have reported that the Mustang Browser comes with a number of integrated features such as ad-blockers, custom homepages and search engines – many of these extensions are with questionable & even suspicious functionality and that’s why we recommend to avoid installing or using it. The majority of the security experts are classifying this program as a PUP, distributed via the “software bundle model, that combines several free or ad-supported software programs into a single software packet/bundle. Mustang Browser is capable of showing various unwanted advertisements on every webpage you visit and since it is a free application, this is the way it generates income for its developers. Furthermore, the Mustang Browser starts collecting private browsing data, right after its installation. The data, collected by the PUP then most likely will be used to to launch targeted advertising campaigns or for other marketing purposes. If you start getting various web ads, claiming that they are – “By Mustang Browser”“Ads by Mustang Browser”, “Mustang Browser Ads”, “Powered by Mustang Browser”, “Brought by Mustang Browser” or “Brought to you by Mustang Browser” – you should consider your computer infected. Mustang Browser appears to work 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.

Mustang Browser 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 Mustang Browser 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 Mustang Browser 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 that might be used to track your browsing habits, however often they collect much more then your web search history. Mustang Browser may use cookies and other relevant techniques, that might be used to collect private data like account information, username, passwords, financial information including credit card and bank account numbers 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.
