Logi Campaign Notifier – Propagation Techniques

The main method by which Campaign Notifier infects your computer is called software bundling. Bundling is essentially the type of activity which is used by programs that are available for free download online. Some websites that provide software downloads also modify the setups of such programs to include Logi Campaign Notifier to be bundled within their software installers. The program may not easily be spotted however as it often is concealed in one of the installation steps in the “Advanced” or “Custom” installation options, while often advertised as a free extra that claims to improve your web browsing experience.

The other scenario via which you may start seeing advertisements coming from Campaign Notifier is if you have visited a web page that is advertising it. Usually, such web pages often aim to convince you that it is a useful browser extension that you should add and some web pages may even add it automatically as a result of browser redirection. Such browser redirections are also caused by PUP’s, like Campaign Notifier and if that is the case, you may even have more adware on your PC, than you initially might suspect.

Campaign Notifier – Analysis of Its Activities

An application named LogiCampaignNotifier is an adware that occasionally shows up to be using memory resources. Once Campaign Notifier has been installed on your computer, the executable file LogiCampaignNotifier.exe starts taking up more and more RAM resources for its nasty activities.

For example, the undesired app begins to track different information about your online activities, which is strictly forbidden. This tracking is done via tracking technologies, such as:

  • Cookies.
  • Pixels.
  • Tags.
  • LSOs.
  • Geo-locators.

These technologies are wisely used by Campaign Notifier adware in order to possibly obtain different information from your computer. Such information is often used in order to target you with specific advertisements, based on your behavior, which is known in the trade as “behavioral advertising”. The types of information which can be monitored by Campaign Notifier are believed to be the following:

  • What you search for online.
  • Your browsing history.
  • Location and Language.
  • Keyboard and mouse activity.

Such information may not only be shared with third-parties, but is also used in a nefarious manner to display different types of advertisements on your computer, such as:

  • Banner advertisements.
  • Online pop-ups.
  • Browser redirection.
  • Online search results that are ad-supported.

The advertisements may or may not be with the name of Campaign Notifier and “Ad by Campaign Notifier” or “Campaign Notifier Ads” tags may be seen in one of the corners of the ads. Here is an example of a Campaign Notifier window:

The ads, in general, may not be malicious and only boost some domains you know nothing about, but in most cases, this is not the situation. Since the ads lead to third parties, which Campaign Notifier has nothing to do with, they may pose different dangers for your computer, for example:

  • They may display different types of fake web pages that may be of a phishing type and may aim to steal your information.
  • The information displayed may be a fake login page to steal your credentials.
  • You may be redirected to scamming sites that may pretend that your computer is under threat.
  • Some of the ads may directly lead you to malicious URLs, whose purpose may be to infect your PC with dangerous malware.

    in a Win 7 setup, having had Logitech Setpoint installed, the problem persisted until I uninstalled Logitech Setpoint. It used to pop up several times per day eating a lot of memory, if left alone easily consumed over 1.2Mb. Has not reappeared once since I removed the Logitech Setpoint application.
