In addition to displaying these unwanted ads, the software runs as startup in the local application data via a registry run key and sends commands to the controlling server to request new ads based on the context of what the user is doing.

If the sites visited are not SSL encrypted passwords and usernames might be sent to the server compromising the privacy and security of the user.
