Multiple reports have been issued about an adware program known as LaSuperba. Once the PUP (potentially unwanted program) is installed, the browser may be flooded with suspicious advertisements. The user may also experience redirects to scamming websites employed for phishing. The ads displayed by LaSuperba are typically called ‘Ads by LaSuperba 1.00’ and are in the form of pop-up windows. However, banners and in-text ads may also be generated.
LaSuperba Adware Technical Description
Ad-supported software is neither malicious nor a computer virus. However, users often refer to adware programs as viruses. This is not surprising. Adware is intrusive, aggressive and annoying. It will continuously display advertisements and collect relevant user information. Some ad-supported applications may even be capable of obtaining banking information from the infected PC. The sooner the adware is removed from the system, the better for the system and for the user.
Why Is LaSuperba Dangerous to Users?
Being an adware application, the LaSuperba program may have performed the following activities:
- Add tracking technologies to the browser – such as cookies, beacons, identifiers, etc.
- Collect personally identifiable and non-identifiable information – from usernames and addresses, to browsing-related information.
- Sell or give collected data to affiliate partners and online advertisers for the purpose of displaying relevant advertisements.
- Add registry entries to the Windows registry.
- Increase the system’s vulnerability to severe malware intrusions.
It may seem impossible to you, but sometimes the smallest of ads may directly link you to:
- Social engineering scams. Keep in mind that the number of phishing websites has increased significantly during the last few years. Online money scams have affected millions of users on a global level.
- Websites contaminated with malware. If a drive-by download is executed, your system may suffer a severe infection. Worms, viruses, and spyware (Trojan horses) are often distributed via drive-by downloads.
- Websites promoting rogue software. Many legitimately looking pages may try to trick you into downloading and buying rogue software products – fake AV programs, system optimizers, etc. If you land on such a page, you may instantly witness a pop-up alert tricking you into believing that an important update is missing or suspicious software has been detected. Navigate away from such pages and check your system for viruses.
