What is Weatherbuddy Ads:

Threat Classification: PUP/adware

Weatherbuddy a.k.a. Weatherbuddy Ads is a highly questionable and suspicious application, which also contains a malicious browser extension, classified by the majority of the reputable malware researchers as an adware and a PUP. Even though, that the Weatherbuddy may look like a regular weather widget, our malware researchers concluded, that the application is responsible for various system stability issues as well as for the overall computer performance problems. Usually, this alone is more than enough to label the program as Potentially Unwanted Product, however, our security experts found out, that the Weatherbuddy actually uses intrusive & deceptive ads marketing and once installed, it starts monitoring your web browsing activities and at the same time, it begins to collect various private browsing data, which later is sold to other companies and they will use it for their own marketing purposes. If you have already seen or experienced some of the Weatherbuddy Ads in your browser, our security experts strongly recommend you perform a full system malware scan asap, as there is a clear threat for your online safety. The Weatherbuddy Ads appears to work with all well-known browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

Generally, users that have it installed on their systems experience various pop-up ads, coupon boxes, banners, search suggestion windows, sponsored link ads or other types of commercials, which have being displayed on almost every requested web page. We recommend you to consider the search results compromised and/or manipulated and because they are usually full of 3rd party ads and/or other junk SPAM.

Weatherbuddy Ads is usually bundled with some other free ad-supported products and has being installed by default, while the user performs an express/default installation. That is why we strongly recommend you to always opt-out and use custom installation if possible and available. If you deselect all the unwanted (not requested by you) software from the software bundle installer process will save you a lot of time, troubles and money wasted for the recovery process. You should leave selected (included) for installation only the initially requested software. The possible distribution of Weatherbuddy Ads varies, but is not limited to – installing 3rd party toolbars, free software products, video editing software, various multimedia codecs, downloading e-mail attachments, clicking suspicious ads or banners etc.

The main goal of Weatherbuddy Ads is to generate as much web traffic as possible, that could easily be monetized via one of the many online marketing platforms. Please note, that the creators of that or similar adware will collect private information from your computer, that might be used to track your browsing habits, IP addresses, Bookmarks, Usernames, Passwords and even financial information, however often they collect much more than just that. That is why these kinds of infections should not being left unattended, and need to been terminated immediately, as they present a serious threat to your online, personal and financial safety and security.

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