What is WebMailWorld Toolbar:

Threat Classification: PUP/Adware

WebMailWorld or WebMailWorld Toolbar is an application developed by Mindspark Interactive Network company and is considered malicious by the majority of the security researchers. WebMailWorld toolbar claims to save you time by configuring your favorite email service to be a one click action – via the toolbar. And again, we don’t recommend installing this application on your computer, because it is classified as a PUP, an adware and a browser hijacker. Once installed on the victim’s computer, the toolbar will first modify the browsers settings, making the recovery even harder, then it changes the default search engine to Ask.com and the default home page to http://home.tb.ask.com. The browser hijacker will attach itself to every popular web browser on the victim’s PC, to compromise the browser`s settings such as the home page and the default search engine. When the user performs a search, it will be redirected to http://home.tb.ask.com/. The search results should be considered compromised – usually they are loaded with SPAM and third-party advertising.

Usually, WebMailWorld Toolbar comes packed 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 the WebMailWorld Toolbar varies but is not limited to – installing third-party toolbars, free software products, downloading e-mail attachments, clicking on ads or banners etc..

WebMailWorld Toolbar will fill your browser screen with unwanted advertising, trying to attract more users to the advertised web pages and generate income from the online traffic. WebMailWorld Toolbar may keep track of your browsing activity and steal valuable information as login credentials, financial information and even bank accounts data. This information might be sent to third-party companies, which might used it for marketing purposes or for something else. That’s why this infection should not be left unattended, and needs to be terminated immediately, as it seems to be a serious threat to your online security.

!!! Please note that these kinds of infections could potentially bring up other malware to your computer and even cause loss of data. We strongly recommend you to not underestimate such threats.
