We have recently witnessed a surge of malware infections which have been traced back to a new adware program called Jelbrus. Users should remove this infection, because it is very irritating and even dangerous. The program displays third-party commercial advertisements of unreliable nature that have recently been reported as a source of multiple infections. Due to the fact that this infection is relatively new, there isn’t a lot of information about it. But regardless, we are obligated to provide you with the latest information we have about this clandestine infection.

Firstly, we must discuss what this application was designed to do. By definition adware applications are primarily designed to display advertisements as they seldom do anything else in addition to advertising. Our analysis has shown that this application starts automatically with the operating system. It also connects to the Internet without permission as soon as you launch the web browser. Note that it supports Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome, so those of you who use these browsers should remove this infection. At any rate, the app uses modified open source tools, web proxies to forward HTTP requests. Once installed it injects every webpage with malicious client-side JavaScript, and connects to an adware server.

After quickly settling in, Jelbrus begins to do its dirty work. The app starts bombarding the user with multiple advertisements that usually come in the form of coupons, pop-ups, in-texts, banners, and so on. The biggest concern with this infection is that it promotes unreliable third-party advertisements. You might be subjected to various misleading or fake ads that might offer you to download some sort of shifty system optimization utility that might turn out to be a rogue program. In fact if you don’t remove Jelbrus, your PC might be infected with all kinds of malware including Trojans, spyware, adware, browser hijackers, PUP’s, and so on.

Another reason to remove Jelbrus is its ability to gather information about the user’s browsing habits. It could utilize browser cookies in order to collect information about your browsing and search history, browser settings, IP addresses, etc. But more worrying is the fact that it has the ability to record key strokes, which means that cyber criminals could get a hold of your logins and passwords of websites and even online banking credentials.

In conclusion, users should remove Jelbrus as soon as possible, because it is a dangerous program that could jeopardize your computer’s security by infecting it with malware. Furthermore, it has the ability to gather information about you, which is a violation of privacy rights. Therefore we recommend that you remove this infection immediately. However, manual removal is not an option, since it requires some advanced computer knowledge. Therefore, we recommend users to get a malware scanner such as SpyHunter to remove Jelbrus altogether.

    ***** me sideways it worked, this worked 100%, thanks allot. For people attempting this, when i done this and i loaded google chrome it said "Unable to access Proxy" to fix this i just opened up my own proxy then closed it and it fixed it easy, if you don't know how to get a proxy you can look it up but a computer restart should do the job.
