Remove SuperWeb Adware from Your Computer

pop-ups-adware-adcloudSuperWeb LLC is a software provider that is a significant part of an advertising group known by the names Sambreel and Yontoo. They are one the many creators of many of the so-called ad-supported helpers – toolbars or browser extensions that claim to be useful but in addition to that may heavily advertise on the computer they are installed on. Not only this, but SuperWeb software might also collect different user information with the primary purpose of sharing content for profit to interested third-parties. These several reasons have given enough evidence to ESG malware researchers to consider these programs potentially unwanted (PUPs).

SuperWeb Adware – Distribution

With over 860 000 infections primary located in Poland, Brasil, and the U.S., SuperWeb software is distributed via several methods, the most widespread of which is familiar as bundling. If you have installed a program and knew how to do it, there is a solid chance that you may have already encountered bundled programs. They come “as free extras” in the “Custom” or “Advanced” installation steps. Here is an example of a bundled application:

This may be encountered with most of the free programs downloaded from some third-party software providing websites. There is a variety of software developed by SuperWeb that may be bundled:

ProductDeals
Twinkle Star Ads
Fruit Basket
Web Layers Ads
SailDeals
MagicBall
Zoom Zoom Ads
GearScroll
Clock Hand
Coupons Free
Sad Cloud Ads
Digital More
Gravity Space Ads
Blazer Deals Ads
Clock Hand Ads

All users who encounter these programs bundled in their installers are strongly advised either to use other installers, to untick them or to use software such as Ninite to install programs in the future.

Super Web Adware In Detail

Super Web programs may be created for several different purposes. One of them could be to collect user information using different tracking technologies such as cookies, pixels, beacons and others to obtain different user information:

  • System information.
  • User’s browsing activity.
  • IP address and location as well as nationality information.

The other purpose of those applications is to display heavily advertisements to the user. These pop-ups, banners, ad-supported search results and another annoying commercialized content is usually created for pay-per-click revenue generating and to boost the traffic to third-party websites. It may eventually turn out to be dangerous because developers such as SuperWeb may sometimes advertise dangerous websites:

Sites that display essentially scary error messages as a part of a fake tech support scam. Examples may be the 1-888-991-9974 fake BSOD message.
Websites that advertise fraudulent and rogue software.
Sites that advertise other scams or malware to make money online at the expense of the user.

Here are several executables that have been detected, according to HerdProtect’s database:

Furthermore, SuperWeb LLC has been reported to be associated with the Yontoo advertising group as well as several other advertising “partners”:

  • sterkly LLC
  • Web Cake
  • lucky leap
  • SaltarSmart
  • secretsauce
  • GreyGray
  • diamondata
  • LemurLeap
  • BatBrowse
  • Browse Fox
  • glindorus
  • Browsebeyond
  • outobox
  • Whilokii
  • Spring Smart
  • Cling Clang
  • kasimos

Furthermore, ESG malware researchers have identified several different activities SuperWeb adware may perform on a user PC:

  • Modifications In the settings of the web browser and system.
  • Significantly affect the computer’s performance.
  • Cause the browser to crash or freeze at some point in time.
  • Strip some of the defenses from your computer, making it more vulnerable to malware.
  • The software may cause unstoppable redirects to third-party websites.
  • Heavy displaying of pop-ups sometimes even with sound.

And this all should be mentioned in the shady Privacy Policy of the organization, which has some interesting claims:
