    Threat Classification: PUP/adware

    If your web browser start showing you lots of unwanted web Ads by Innovate Direct, our security research team strongly recommends you to run a malware system scan using an up-to-date, reputable & reliable anti-malware software like SpyHunter 4. Our security experts found out that the Innovate Direct Ads are caused by a malicious browser extension called Innovate Direct and it was developed by the notorious SuperWeb LLC., capable of infiltrating various computers without asking for user’s permission or any consent. After performing multiple experiments and tests, our security researchers concluded that this malware infection has been designed and developed to earn revenue for its developers by directly injecting the html code (sponsor ads/links) into the requested websites, which basically will lead to website alteration. After performing further tests, our security researchers discovered that the adware collects various private information from the victim’s computer including Web Searches, Browsing History & Information, Usernames & Passwords, E-mail addresses, Cookies, Location History, Names, SSN, Credit Card information and/or other private financial information and even online banking accounts information, which later will be either sold or shared with some 3rd party company, that will use your private data for their own marketing purposes. Our security experts warned us, that even though Innovate Direct claims to enhance your browsing experience, however it was classified as a dangerous adware and/or a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) by the majority of the reputable malware researchers. It seems that the adware contains a malicious browser extension, distributed mainly via suspicious or even questionable software bundles, often configured to install the Innovate Direct by default using silent or stealth mode, hiding it from the users. This kind of adware has been used by malware developers to generate income by showing sponsor links or ads on almost every web page, requested by the victim. If your display starts getting overflown by these annoying ads “by Innovate Direct” , “Ads by Innovate Direct”, “Innovate Direct Ads”, “Ad by Innovate Direct”, “Powered by Innovate Direct”, “Brought by Innovate Direct”, “Optimized by Innovate Direct” or “Brought to you by Innovate Direct” – you should consider your computer infected by the Innovate Direct adware. Please note, that all of these ads, shown by the Innovate Direct extension should NOT BE considered SAFE and we strongly advise you to avoid interacting and/or clicking on them! After performing multiple tests and experiments, our malware researchers came to the conclusion that Innovate Direct works fine with all the well-known web browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.
