BrowseNET

What is BrowseNET?

BrowseNET is an adware (advertising supported) web browser application that is designed to display banner ads as well as contextual link ads (such as hyperlinks the user will see underlined). The ads are injected by the web browser plugin (IE, FF and Chrome) and will display on any web site, even those not associated or affiliated with the publisher. The application is usually bundled by 3rd-party download managers that utilize deceptive advertising techniques in order to install the software on the user's computer. In addition to advertisements being displayed, the app will also modify the browser settings which could include lowering the normal security settings of the browser as well as changing the home page and search provider (known as hijacking).
