What is TelevisionAce:

Threat Classification: Browser Hijacker/PUP

The TelevisionAce (a.k.a Television Ace, TelevisionAce Toolbar or TelevisionAce Extension) is presented as a useful and handy web browser application, that provides users with free online TV, instant TV listings, latest TV news and more. Even though, that the TelevisionAce Toolbar may appear useful to some users, the majority of the malware researchers have classified it as a questionable web app, that is distributed mainly in bundles with other popular freeware applications. Furthermore, many malware researchers have stated, that the TelevisoionAce Toolbar is capable of monitoring web traffic and collecting all kinds of private browsing data. Our malware researchers pointed out to the fact, that the TelevisionAce Toolbar is developed by the notorious Mindspark Interactive Network Inc. and is powered by the MyWay web search and this is known to be a highly suspicious, because of the multiple PUPs they already have built. The majority of the malware researchers have classified the TelevisionAce as a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Product) as well as a browser hijacker, that is capable of causing a lot of troubles on users’ machines. After a thorough inspection, our security experts have recommended all users, that have TelevisionAce Toolbar installed on their systems, to run a full system malware scan, using an up-to-date and reliable anti-malware software, just like the award-winning SpyHunter

Usually, TelevisionAce comes packed together with some popular free or “ad-supported” software products and is set to install by default, after the user accepts the EULA and he/she didn’t opted-out the express/recommended/default installation. The possible distribution of the TelevisionAce Toolbar varies and is not limited to 3rd party toolbars, free PDF editors, free Video editors, free Video downloaders, peer2peer downloads, SPAM, infected e-mail attachments, suspicious torrents etc.

TelevisionAce may keep track of your browsing activity and could monitor and collect all kind of browser data, including search terms, search result URL, browser history, email addresses, account credentials including username & password, cookies, financial information like bank accounts, credit card numbers etc. The collected data will later be either sold or shared with some 3rd party companies, which will use it for their own marketing purposes. That’s why we strongly recommend you to avoid leaving such kind of infections unattended and to terminate them asap, because they represent a serious threat to users online identity and computer safety and security.

If you take a close look at the TelevisionAce Toolbar, you will find it almost identical with the TVStreamNow, TransitSimplified, GetFlightInfo, AtoZmanuals, MyTransitGuide, EmailFanatic, DailyLocalGuide, FormDocToPDF, TrackAPackage, EasyPDFCombine, MyMapsExpress, MyMapsWizard, EasyDirectionsFinder, InternetSpeedRadar, all of which were already classified by our experts as PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Products) and as browser hijackers.
