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,).

"Glindorus content includes advertisements... User info is collected and shared for ad relevance and other purposes."


Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. The primary executable is named glindorusBHO.dll. A majority of users end up uninstalling this less than a week of it being installed. The setup package generally installs about 7 files and is usually about 521.25 KB (533,758 bytes).
