What is Fralimbo?

Fralimbo is an adware application that is distributed by Yontoo, a division of Sambreel Holdings based in Carlsbad, CA. It is a rebrand of the various other web browser extensions that Yontoo delivers all with similar names. The program is included as part of a download bundle. Upon installation, this adware installs itself as a web browser addin/plugin and or extension depending on the browser (Chrome, IE, Firefox). It will inject various forms of advertising in the browser including but not limited to inline text and multi-site searching, related search results, comparison shopping popups and a number of banners and popups/popunders for additional offers of both standard ads as well as unwanted software.

In addition to displaying advertisements, the adware extension will also modify the web browsers settings in order to facilitate its ad injection offers. When installed and without any notice (other then on the website EULA), the software will automatically adjust the two second load time in Internet Explorer by turning it off. This action prevents IE from warning the user that a slower BHO is causing some unwanted effects. It will also it will modify the browser's Instant Search feature and will adjust the browser so that clicking on a search engine results page link will open the page in a new browser tab.
