SelectionLinks is an adware application, which will show ads and sponsored links on Facebook, Google, Youtube, and other websites that Internet users visit. These ads will be illustrated as boxes on various websites, and under them the target computer user will see a link ‘about this ad’, which will direct the victimized computer user to the website of SelectionLinks. SelectionLinks will also add a tab to the Google Search page, in which it will illustrate Youtube and Twitter search results for the attacked PC user’s queries, and when the victim will highlight any words on a website, it will show a box, which carries various search engines. SelectionLinks is a browser extension for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome that is usually added when computer users install other free software products. When web users install these free software, they will also unknowingly install SelectionLinks.
