Klip Pal

What is Klip Pal?

Klip Pal is a potentially unwanted adware program that injects ads into the user's browser. This includes inserting into web pages or displaying ads over parts of existing web page advertisements, banners, coupons or text links that would not otherwise appear. It will communicate with the adware's servers to check for new offers and the placement of offers as well as monitoring and recording the domain name of each page the user views, the advertisements that appear on these pages and the ads the user clicks on. In addition the app may display alerts and popups for updating or installing new applications many of which are ad-supported browser extensions.

Overview

The most common release is 2014.10.27.182646, with over 14% of all installations currently using this version.

Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. In the Google Chrome browser, it will add an extension. The primary executable is named updateKlipPal.exe. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 25 files and is usually about 1.31 MB (1,374,314 bytes).
