What is glindorus?

Glindorus is an adware application that runs in the web browser as a toolbar and web extension. The web extension is primarily designed to take control of the user's browser in order to inject additional advertising. In doing so, the toolbar performs a number of behaviors in order to maximize the potential of a user to click on sponsored advertising through search. It is typically installed via a bundled offer within a 3rd-party distribution via questionable download sites run by FIRSERIA (dl.downpzivrubajjui.com, dl.wasdmr.com, etc,).
