Surfshield Ads

Surfshield Ads is a browser service that should safeguard you against dubious websites. It is a very tempting offer but you should not get fooled as Surfshield Ads is just one more invasive adware application. In reality, it is quite paradoxical as an application that should safeguard your system against dubious web content will most likely expose your PC to it.

Just as Surfshield Ads enters your system browsers such as Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox will be affected by this adware program. Unlike the majority of adware programs Surfshield Ads does not rely on browser extensions to display commercial third-party adverts. Instead of installing extensions Surfshield Ads starts a Windows process after it successfully gains access into your operating system. The process is called UpdateService.exe and could be stopped via Task Manager. Unfortunately, the dubious process will auto-start with every system startup. As long as Surfshield Ads is present on your operating system your browsers will be flooded with numerous annoying third-party adverts that will make surfing the web a frustrating experience.

If that was not enough, it was revealed that adverts provided by Surfshield Ads could contain redirect links. Ergo, just by clicking on such an advert you could land on a website running an arbitrary code execution exploit. This exploit is used by malware distributors because it allows installing a dubious application without requiring any authorization from you – the user. Therefore, just by landing on such a website could be enough to get your system infected with unknown malware. Whichever way you look, Surfshield Ads is an application that should be removed ASAP as it exhibits no valuable features whatsoever.
