NetSurf Ads

NetSurf Ads Description

Computer users that find themselves redirected to sites like shopmania.ro and experience ads that feature the slogan 'Powered by NetSurf' may have installed an adware-powered extension. The ads brought by NetSurf may include offers from other online stores and suggest users subscribe to premium services. The NetSurf adware can be found at net-surf.browser-repo[.]net/bg/install, where it is promoted as a benign shopping extension. The NetSurf app has a page on the Chrome Webstore that you can find at chrome.google[.]com/webstore/detail/net-surf/dfloejogjogbalabpfaiiionlclpkekk, but most of the installations related to NetSurf are performed with a free software bundle that many users may handle with the 'Express' and 'Typical' option.

The NetSurf adware belongs to the Adware.Price Fab family of programs, which are marketed as shopping extensions. Additionally, the NetSurf has clones on browse-plus.browser-apps[.]net/en/install and eadvisor.apps-advisor[.]net/en/install, which correspond to browsePlus and eAdvisor. These programs are not classified as severe threats to your security, but they have the potential to redirect users to compromised pages and convince users to make purchases on unreliable online shopping platforms where a refund is not an option. The ads by NetSurf may be presented as banners, pop-up and pop-under windows, which may include video and radio commercials, as well as promotional images from trusted vendors. The developers behind the NetSurf adware may use the app to collect usage statistics like your Internet history, downloads list and bookmarks. The data may be analyzed by a marketing algorithm to help the NetSurf adware generate personalized advertisement content on your screen. Third-party extensions like Adblock Plus, Ghostery, and PrivacyBadger, may not block the ads brought by NetSurf since they are generated by an app on your system. You can remove the NetSurf adware with the hep of a credible anti-spyware tool.
