The FilePlus software that you may find under the 'Advanced' and 'Custom' options of a free software bundle is advertised as a download manager. The FilePlus is similar in functionality to tools like the BullVid Download Manager, the Open Downloader Manager and the Oxy Torrent. The FilePlus program claims to allow users to download content like music, PC/Xbox/PS3 games and movies for free. The FilePlus software is associated with a platform at Fileplus.org where Web surfers will find a search bar and a minimalistic catalog of the content available through FilePlus. The marketing pitch of the FilePlus platform is:
'Download here for free!
Discover the amazing depth, variety, and accessibility of games, movies, music and software.'
You would be smart to ask if there is a catch and what type of free content to expect from FilePlus. The FilePlus software claims to offer access to free copies of games like "Wolfenstein: The new Order," movies like "Interstellar," and music albums like "Linkin Park – Meteora." There is no company listed at FilePlus.or and the provider of the content is not clear. Also, there is no contact information and way for users to provide feedback on the services provided by FilePlus. Computer analysts note that the FilePlus software may install the Fleercivet Trojan on your PC and display advertisements on your screen. The FilePlus program is reported to provide access to pirated software and push ads to users. The ads by FilePlus may include banners, sponsored search results injected on Google, hyperlinks in the text you read online, full-page promotions, and redirects to video commercials.
The document on fileplus.org/agreement.pdf states that the FilePlus is an ad-supported program that may push marketing materials on your screen and use information like your browsing history, search terms on Google, bookmarks, IP address, and machine ID to display targeted ads. The data collected by FilePlus may be sent to third-party analytics services over insecure connections, which may expose users to Man-in-the-Middle attacks. PC users are advised to reconsider installing FilePlus and may want to remove the app with the help of a reliable anti-spyware tool.
