OMG-Music-Plus-03

What is OMG-Music-Plus-03?

OMG-Music-Plus is an advertising supported browser extension also known as adware and is designed to deliver ads to the user's Internet browser as banners, context text-links and transitionals ads.

This program displays content by inserting into the web pages or displaying over parts of such web page advertisements, banner or coupons that would not otherwise appear. Injected ad placements may contain links to further information about the ad ("About this Ad"). This adware component will also report the browsing habits of the user as well as URLs and domain names the user visits so that it can update check for new offers and the placement of offers. It will also monitor and record the advertisements that appear on web pages as well as the ads the user clicks on.

Many adware programs (defined by a number of anti-virus vendors) are built using Crossrider as it provides a quick an easy way to deploy ad-supported features that will assist in browser search hijacking.
