FileDisplay

Summary

These methods, such as bundling, are designed to mask the fact that an additional application is being installed on the users system specifically. The PUP will start running an intrusive advertising campaign that will flood the device with unwanted ad materials. Engaging with the advertisements is not recommended, as they could lead to questionable or unsafe places such as phishing or misleading pages. At the same time, FileDisplay will proceed with its browser-hijacker process that will modify specific browser settings to promote a sponsored address. The browsers homepage, default search engine, and the new tab page will all be set to open FileDisplays address.
