BWSRappSev2

What is BWSRappSev2?

This is an adware program that installs as a web browser plugin to inject and display advertisements. Once installed the program will deliver ads including but not limited to banner ads, text-links, coupons and other offers both by injecting them in the user's web browser as well as displaying popups outside of the browser.

Overview

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. In the Mozilla Firefox browser, it will add an add-on. The primary executable is named utils.exe. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 12 files and is usually about 7.97 MB (8,355,416 bytes).
  • Malware detected in the program
  • Automatically starts with Windows
  • Integrates into the web browser
  • Typically distributed through a pay-per-install bundle
  • Injects advertisements unassociated with the underlying web page
  • The experts agree, you should remove it!
Warning, multiple anti-virus scanners have detected possible malware in BWSRappSev2.
