What is less2pay?

Less2Pay is a JustPlug.It web browser extension that is delivered via the WebPick InstalleRex download and install manager. In addition to be included with various adware offer bundles, the JustPlug.It cross browser extension runs with multiple parts including a Windows service, an auto-starting component and the browser toolbar/plugin which is designed to inject advertisements in the browser in form of banner ads, hyper-text links and popups. In addition, some version might hijack existing advertising on web sites as well as inject affiliate codes in links as coupon offers. During installation, the program will install itself in a folder with a random name in Program Files or ProgramData and each of the included files will also have a shared random generated name. The Windows Service that is installed runs with full administrator rights under the Services control app and connects to a remote server (toolkitsetbest.info, getapplicationmy.info) for updates as well as creates a server that listens for TCP network requests locally.

The advertisements that are displayed in the browser could include deceptive malvertising ads for 'required' updates of known common programs as well as unwanted pop-ups advertisements. If downloaded these programs install a number of bundled adware utilities and additional browser extensions. Additionally components of the program will modify the browser's default security levels.

A number of the versions may include a setup file signed by WEB PICK - INTERNET HOLDINGS LTD (this is the partner installer/distributor).
