RuneScape Toolbar

What is RuneScape Toolbar?

RuneScape Toolbar is a Conduit web browser plugin for Intenet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox that collects and stores information about a user's web browsing habits and sends this information to Conduit in order to provide advertising. It will change the user's home page and search provider during installation (optional but enabled by default) and provides a search box and various social features. If the home page and search settings were modified by this toolbar, they need to be manually reverted back by the user if the user decides to uninstall the toolbar. According to the License Agreement, "The Application may also collect and store information about your web browsing locally on your device. This locally saved information may interact with the Application and send us information about your web browsing so we can suggest services or provide you ads that may be more relevant to you. Only generalized inferences are passed from the Application to our servers."

Overview

The most common release is 6.8.5.1, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. The program adds a toolbar to Microsoft 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 software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named RuneScapeToolbarHelper.exe. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. It also bundles additional software in the form of the Conduit Engine, which installs a potentially unwanted toolbar, and makes homepage and default search engine changes to a user's web browser. The setup package generally installs about 18 files and is usually about 9.31 MB (9,764,496 bytes).
  • Malware detected in the program
  • Integrates into the web browser
  • Built on and distributed using the Conduit toolbar
  • Typically distributed through a pay-per-install bundle
  • Hijacks the web browser's home page
  • Hijacks the browser's default search provider
