Ekoblock is classified as an adware threat and a Potentially Unwanted Program that may display unwelcomed advertisements with the objective of possibly generating advertisement clicks and increase traffic to its sponsored websites. Ekoblock may add a plug-in or extension into Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome Web browsers. Ekoblock may inject numerous advertisements from its affiliate advertising providers that may encompass inline text links, pop-up and banner advertisements. The continuous advertisements of Ekoblock may lead to the installation of insecure content that may encompass other adware and PUPs. Ekoblock may turn the affected computer into a slow and unresponsive machine. Although displaying some interesting advertisements, Ekoblock doesn't be worth the problems Ekoblock may cause on an affected computer.
