What is Mezaa?

Mezaais an web browser advertisement injection and hijack service that delivers ads to the user's web browser (which may include coupons and savings offers, in-text advertisement or other advertisement). Ads delivered are injected on any web page the software decides to include it on and not just those affiliated with the software or its affiliates. The ads are not affiliated nor endorsed by the underlying websites on which they appear. The program periodically connects with its remote servers to download new ad feeds and will report back the domains and URLs the user visits as well as the links and advertisements the user clicks on while browsing the web.

Mezaa will modify the computer's DNS properties such as the ServerPriorityTimeLimit in the DNS cache in order to display ads when a user mistypes a DNS query in the browser. It will also hijack Window's networking by inserting a LSP (Layered Service Provider) named SimpleSC.dll/mza64.dll which will capture and analyze various Internet traffic.
