TubeSing-34

What is TubeSing-34?

The TubeSing adware program injects advertisements with its affiliate ad providers in order to serve a number of ad types including banner, inline text links and popups.
These ads are aimed to promote the installation of additional questionable content including web browser toolbars, optimization utilities and other products.

Once infected by this common symptoms include:
- Random web page text is turned into hyperlinks.
- Web pages become extremely slow to download due to the multiple ads.
- Browser popups appear which recommend fake updates or other software.
- Other unwanted adware programs might get installed without the user's knowledge.

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. The primary executable is named utils.exe. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 15 files and is usually about 8.51 MB (8,918,986 bytes). The installed file TubeSing-34-updater.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
