LyricSing

What is LyricSing?

LyricSing is an adware web browser application that displays banner ads as well as contextual link ads that are injected in the web page. The ads are injected by the web browser addon and will display on any web site, even those not associated or affiliated with the publisher. On web pages there may be up to 10 intext ads and/or 4 banner ad and/or a transitional ad. The application is usually bundled by 3rd-party download managers that utilize deceptive advertising techniques in order to install the software. In addition to ads, the program 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 web browser hijacking). The extension will also report back to the controlling server analytics which may include the behavior of the user on the Internet and reports back URLs and domains visited as well as what advertisements are displayed and clicked on. This adware is mostly bundled with 3rd party download managers that include a number of additional offers, all potentially unwanted programs.

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 background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The main program executable is LyricSingVc161.exe. Typically most users end up uninstalling this just after a few days. The software installer includes 15 files and is usually about 1.5 MB (1,569,437 bytes).
