Malware analysts have received numerous reports involving advertisements and redirects linked to Storimbo, a low quality Web browser add-on. Storimbo is classified by malware researchers as a PUP or Potentially Unwanted Program because Storimbo causes a wide variety of threat-like symptoms but remains easier to remove and not as destructive as most threats. Storimbo takes the form of a Web browser extension that is developed by Super Web LLC, a company that is responsible for dozens of known PUPs that are in active circulation. Although Storimbo is marketed as a useful tool for computer users to compare website ratings, search the Web more effectively, and find discounts and coupons for online shopping, Storimbo is designed to generate revenue at the expense of computer users. It's important to note that Storimbo is associated with a variety of advertisements on affected Web browsers which may quickly become extremely disruptive.
Storimbo may be associated with search advertisements, banners and sliding advertisements, in-text links, full-page advertisements, pop-up windows and intrusive video advertisements. More importantly, Storimbo can track your online activity and gather data about your computer and browsing habits. This data may be sold to marketers for research purposes or used by Storimbo itself to continue displaying advertisements on your computer. It is also valuable to mention that the types of advertisements displayed on Storimbo are seldom related to reputable companies.
The kinds of advertisers that resort to low quality PUPs like Storimbo often do so because they have been banned from legitimate advertisement or search platforms due to the nature of their content. This means that advertisements on Storimbo may expose your Web browser to several kinds of threats. If you are experiencing problems associated with Storimbo, malware analysts recommend the immediate removal of this PUP. A reliable security program should be used to scan the affected computer to make sure that Storimbo has not exposed it to more threatening components.
