SushiLeads (a PastaLeads variant) is an adware program that installs as a web browser plugin to inject and display advertisements. Once installed the program will deliver ads including but not limited to banner ads, text-links, coupons and other offers both by injecting them in the user's web browser as well as displaying popups outside of the browser.


The most used version is, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it.

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).

The software installer includes 20 files and is usually about 2.05 MB (2,145,614 bytes). update.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released.
