We found a new Trojan that uses aggressive techniques, including blocking access to security sites, to deliver an adware bundler. Read up on what Extenbro can do and how to get this pest off your system.
For this PUP Friday post, we’re going to look into PUPs that we can simply classify as “Downloaders”. We have sampled a bundler offering the program called Internet Download Manager, which is capable of downloading other files we detect as PUP and connects to sites leading to suspicious destinations.
Files that Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) detect as OneClickDownloader are what we call bundlers. We have defined bundlers as a blend of programs that are bunched up together to be installed with a main program, which is usually what users desire to install onto their systems. These additional programs are other unwanted software, such as adware and toolbars.
