Bugfixxer Ads

What is Bugfixxer Ads?

As the name implies, Bugfixxer Ads is a program dedicated to displaying commercial advertisements. Therefore, we suggest that you remove it because it will continuously nag you with its annoying promotions. Furthermore, the websites it promotes can hardly be called reliable. We have no doubt that this program can advertise malicious content that can compromise your PC’s security. So we advise that you play it safe and get rid of it as soon as you can. However, it has one more serious problem, which is that you cannot uninstall it using Control Panel. This indicates that this application is unreliable, and we want to provide you with more information about it to make this abundantly clear.

Where does Bugfixxer Ads come from?

Our malware researchers have discovered that this adware comes from a company called HahoMedia which is also the name of its first adware-type release. Since then, this company has also released a program called Syssecure Ads. However, none of the applications that came from this developer are legitimate. In fact, all of them are one and the same program with a facelift. So the developer is clearly in the web monetization business which is a lucrative business to be in these days. Therefore, the developers have to find creative means to get as many people to have adware on their PC’s as possible. However, users have grown wary of this and generally try to avoid installing such programs. This is one of the reasons why Bugfixxer Ads does not have an uninstaller. The lack of an uninstaller means that less tech-savvy users will not be able to get rid of it, and the developers will continue to cash in.

Now, HahoMedia uses the most common method for distributing adware. This method is known as software bundling and it usually involves taking freeware and additional yet shady programs and packaging them in one installer. As far as we know, the installers Bugfixxer Ads comes in are set to install this program automatically without your permission. However, you might be able to remove it from the installation setup by opting for advanced installation settings and unchecking its respective checkbox. We encourage you to avoid websites that feature bundled software because you might get more than you bargained for.

What does Bugfixxer Ads do?

As an adware-type application, it does not do much. Testing has shown that it can display many advertisements that can come in the form of coupons, pop-ups, banners, in texts, search-related ads, and on. They are not too intrusive and often you might think that they are a part of a given website. This program should show ads on many websites, especially online shopping sites since most of its ads are associated with consumer goods. For example, this program can load http://newupdatesneeded{.}com/lp/87/4/free/java and http://survey.com-offer.biz/fb/index.php?keyword={ebay.com}#mcpopup that promote products from Ebay.com and elsewhere, but HahoMedia is not associated with any one of those legitimate companies.

On top of that, we think that it is entirely possible for this application to be reconfigured to promote malicious software or fake online shopping websites, not to mention that certain cyber criminals have the means to hijack it and use it to advance their agenda, such as creating fake ads that infect a computer with ransomware after clicking an advertisement. Therefore, you should get rid of this infection as soon as possible to avoid jeopardizing your computer’s security.
