Syssecure Ads

We want to inform you about a new adware-type application called Syssecure Ads. We recommend that you remove this program because it designed to show you annoying and potentially dangerous advertisements. However, its developers claim that its purpose is to provide you with the best possible shopping and Internet browsing experience. Also, it says that it can help you save money by showing you ads. However, we beg to differ because this application is invasive and you probably got it accidentally since its developers employ deceptive distribution tactics.

Before we move on to more technical information regarding this program’s functionality, let us discuss its origins. We have found that this adware belongs to the HahoMedia family of ad-supported applications, so many of Syssecure Ads elements can be found in other adware. Not much else is known about HahoMedia, but we assume that we will see more of its infections taking front and center of the adware developing business. This company’s website is located at However, web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox block this site on grounds that it is dangerous, and it probably is as it can feature malicious downloads.

While gathering information about Syssecure Ads, we found that it is distributed using software bundles. It appears that its developers have made arrangements to bundle it with freeware that is uploaded to freeware distributing websites. Now, those bundles are more than likely to feature malicious installers that purposefully hide additional software. The installer may be arranged in a confusing manner so that you would install additional content. Therefore, you should read the installation instructions carefully regardless of where you downloaded your software and opt for custom or advanced installation settings whenever possible.

Now let us discuss this programs purpose. Its developers do not try to hide the fact that it is an adware-type application. However, they try to convince you that it is in your interest to install it and view its promotions that come as banners, in-texts, coupons, pop-ups, videos, and so on. The ads are supposed to present you with good deals, but, in truth, they will only annoy you and slow down your browser and make your browsing experience problematic. We have found that it may present you with advertisements such as http://newupdatesneeded{.}com/lp/87/4/free/java and{}#mcpopup that promote products on and Minecraft-related content. The ads are presented by shady advertisers, so we do not recommend trusting them.

Furthermore, you cannot remove Syssecure Ads by simply going to the Control Panel. This is another malicious aspect about this adware that it does not include an uninstaller. Perhaps this is done on purpose so that less tech-savvy people would continue to encounter its advertisements. Our research has shown that this adware contains two executable files that should be named Injector.exe and InjectorServiceProject.exe, but that might not always be the case. Therefore, if you want to delete them, then you have to kill their processes from the Task Manager and delete them manually. We have found that this adware’s files should be located in C:\Program Files (x86) or C:\Program Files (depending on the architecture of the operating system.) Syssecure Ads files should be located in a folder named Halo media, but this adware might also have a folder named after it.

We want to stress the unreliability of this program because it is distributed using malicious installers that try to install it without you knowing about it, its promotions come from unverified sources, and you cannot uninstall using traditional methods. These are just a few traits that make a program malicious. As far as privacy-related matters are concerned, we want to stress that this adware uses something that is called “behavioral advertising.” In a nutshell it means that this program collects information about you and uploads it to its database, and then the developers make changes to the advertising campaign to make more money. Thus, this application might collect information regarding your geographical location, IP address, Internet Service Provider, browsing history, search history, ads viewed and so on. This kind of information collection is legal, but you should not trust this information with malware developers.

All in all, it is clear that Syssecure Ads is malicious because it comes from a known adware developer. Its promoted content is annoying, intrusive and, above all, questionable. You cannot be certain that your computer’s security will not get compromised as a result of using this application. Please consult the removal guide below on how to get rid of this adware for good.
