TestSpeeder

What is TestSpeeder?

TestSpeeder 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 Revizer'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.

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 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). In the Mozilla Firefox browser, it will add an add-on. The main program executable is TestSpeeder.exe. Typically most users end up uninstalling this just after a few days. The software installer includes 13 files and is usually about 4.4 MB (4,610,230 bytes).
  • Possible malware installed by this program
  • Starts automatically
  • Loads into the web browser
