    What is Loadleader:

    Threat Classification: PUP/adware

    Even though the Loadleader claims to be a very useful and handy download manager, our security advisers performed some tests and they’ve concluded that the Loadleader should be classified as a very dangerous adware and a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program). Moreover, they warned us that the Loadleader Ads were generated by a malicious browser extension and although the Loadleader pretends to provides many useful features, our security experts concluded that the Loadleader is just the next ad-supported malicious program, usually distributed using various dangerous software bundles, that could cause a lot of confusion among the regular users, because they are installed in silent or stealth mode away from the eyes of the regular users! The victims don’t know how did they’ve got the Loadleader on their computer!? These questionable software bundles could distribute even more dangerous stuff like modified installers, bad toolbars, rogue anti-virus products or even crypto viruses. You should be very careful, because Loadleader uses the stealth or silent installation mode to get on your computer and to start annoying you by showing lots of intrusive ads on almost all web pages you visit or to collects various private browsing data as well as other sensitive information. If you have Loadleader 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. Loadleader 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. Loadleader 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 Loadleader 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 Loadleader”“Ads by Loadleader”, “Loadleader Ads”, “Powered by Loadleader”, “Brought by Loadleader” or “Brought to you by Loadleader” – you should consider your computer infected. Loadleader appears to work with all the well-known browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. [Read More…]
