    What is MakeMoneyStar:

    Threat Classification: PUP/adware

    If your browser starts showing you very suspicious and strange Ads by MakeMoneyStar, then we strongly advise you to run a malware scan on your computer. Our security team came to conclusion that these suspicious and annoying MakeMoneyStar Ads are caused by a malicious browser extension, that is a part of an extremely dangerous malware infection, which tries to steal your money or if they can’t be stolen that easy to get all your various private data including email addresses, passwords, usernames or even financial and bank account information. Our security advisers warned us that although MakeMoneyStar claims to provide lots of useful features, like saving money while shopping online, it has been classified as a dangerous adware and a PUP by the majority of the security teams around the world. After running some tests our security department found out that, the adware contains a malicious browser extension, that was distributed mainly via questionable or even dangerous software bundles, configured to install the MakeMoneyStar by default in silent (or stealth) mode, concealing it from the victims. This kind of adware is used by developers to generate income by redirecting web traffic to their sponsor links or ads. If your desktop is overflown by ads “by MakeMoneyStar” , “Ads by MakeMoneyStar”, “MakeMoneyStar Ads”, “Ad by MakeMoneyStar”, “Powered by MakeMoneyStar”, “Brought by MakeMoneyStar”, “Optimized by MakeMoneyStar” or “Brought to you by MakeMoneyStar”  you should consider your computer infected by the MakeMoneyStar adware. Furthermore, it could collect all kind of sensitive and private information from your computer, including browsing history, tracking cookies, usernames, emails, IP addresses and even financial information. Please note, that the ads, shown by the MakeMoneyStar should not be considered as safe and you should avoid clicking on them! The adware works just fine with all the well-known web browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.
