What is HD-VV?

HD (Brightcicle) is a web browser extension that injects display advertising in the user's browser. Ads are displayed in the form of banners and contextual text-links and are both injected in white space areas of the HTML page or over existing ads of the underlying web site. These ads are typically for PC optimization utilities, other bundled malware or other types of malvertising.

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. Once installed, it will add an extension to both the Firefox and Chrome web browsers. 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 17 files and is usually about 17.95 MB (18,821,992 bytes).
  • Malware detected in the program
  • Starts automatically
  • Adds a toolbar to IE and an extension to Chrome and Firefox
  • Delivered through a thrid-party offer
  • The experts agree, you should remove it!
Warning, multiple anti-virus scanners have detected possible malware in HD-VV.
