What is markingApp?

MarkingApp is an adware/PUP variant that will hijack your web browser’s home and search pages to an unwanted search engine (possibly serves up malware and trick-to-click ware via malvertising practices). Once installed it will add a toolbar, change your browser homepage and set your default search engine. In addition, this adware will injects advertisements in the browser, also known as an ad-injector. Ad injection will insert an add, text, banner, flash or hyperlink-over into the white space or over and existing ad in the underlying HTML. Ads can be from PCP hijacked engines with very low relevance and can serve up malware, adware or other PUP. In addition the components will track your web browser history and actions and report back to a command and control server.

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). Once installed, it will add an extension to both the Firefox and Chrome web browsers. The primary executable is named D6markingAppU89.exe. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 17 files and is usually about 8.08 MB (8,467,708 bytes).
  • Malware detected in the program
  • Automatically starts with Windows
  • Adds a toolbar to IE and an extension to Chrome and Firefox
  • Typically distributed through a pay-per-install bundle
  • Injects advertisements unassociated with the underlying web page
  • The experts agree, you should remove it!
Warning, multiple anti-virus scanners have detected possible malware in markingApp.
