123HD-Plus

What is 123HD-Plus?

123HD-Plus is an web browser advertisement injection extension that is designed with the core purpose of delivering ads to the user's web browser. Ads are in the form of banners (both static and videos) as well as context-hyper links. This adware is mostly bundled with 3rd party download managers that include a number of additional offers, all potentially unwanted programs (PUPs).

Ads which are delivered by this adware are injected on any web page the software decides to include it on and not just those affiliated with the software or its affiliates. The program periodically connects with its remote servers to download new ad feeds and will report back the domains and URLs the user visits as well as the links and advertisements the user clicks on while browsing the web.

Overview

The most used version is 1.34.7.1, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up (this is typically done to avoid any UAC prompts). It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. The main program executable is 123HD-Plus-bg.exe. Typically most users end up uninstalling this just after a few days. The software installer includes 13 files and is usually about 10.61 MB (11,124,191 bytes).

The program is built using the Crossrider framework, a cross browser monetization platform used to deploy a toolbar and extension for modern web browsers with monetization features including browser search and homepage redirection, contextual coupons and in-line text advertising. Crossrider extensions include background processes to monitor, update and automatically download new features/code without direct user interaction.
