    What is CareerPronto:

    Threat Classification: PUP/adware

    Our security advisers performed some tests and concluded that CareerPronto should be classified as a dangerous and vicious adware and/or a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program). Moreover, our security experts warned us that CareerPronto Ads are caused by a malicious browser extension and although CareerPronto claims to provide many useful and handy features, our security experts are sure that the CareerPronto is just another ad-supported program, which would use all kinds of malicious tactics to make a bit more cash for its developers, while showing sponsor ads and/or links. These types of malicious applications are usually distributed by various dangerous software bundles, that most of the time are causing lots of confusion among the normal regular users, because of their silent or stealth installation method, performed away from the eyes of the victims! The infected users even haven’t yet find out how did they’ve got the CareerPronto on their PCs!? Please keep in mind that these questionable software bundles could distribute much more dangerous stuff like cryptoviruses, ransomware, computer lockdown programs, modified installers, bad toolbars, rogue anti-virus products or even trojan horses capable of allowing backdoor access to your computer to this attacker. You should be very careful, because CareerPronto uses stealth or silent installation mode to get on your computer and to start showing you lots of intrusive ads, that were not requested nor required and this on almost all websites you visit. Of course this is not the only one problem – it appears that these applications are working for the Data Brokers as well – they are trying to gather as much information as possible from your browser, browser cookies and browser history as well as other sensitive private information, that is supposed to stay private. If you have CareerPronto installed on your computer, it is very likely that it fills your screen with unwanted & very annoying ads, banners pop-up windows or other 3rd party advertisements. CareerPronto has been classified as a PUP by the majority of the security experts on the Internet, mainly because of the distribution method it uses – “software bundling” and because of its suspicious behavior on the user’s computer. CareerPronto uses a malicious browser extension, that is capable of injecting ads into almost every webpage you visit, which could lead to modifying the web page design and content – especially regarding the search results by the major web search engines! Once installed, the CareerPronto quickly modifies windows registry database and browser’s settings, making the recovery even harder. If you start getting various web ads, claiming that they are – “By CareerPronto”, “Ads by CareerPronto”, “CareerPronto Ads”, “Powered by CareerPronto”, “Brought by CareerPronto” or “Brought to you by CareerPronto” – you should consider your computer infected. CareerPronto appears to work with all the well-known browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. [Read More…]
