Where does BeautyBrilliant come from?
You might wonder how it entered your system, especially if you are not interested in makeup. Unfortunately, anyone can install this program without even realizing it. BeautyBrilliant comes silently bundled with other free applications and so you install them together. One way or the other users come across it on file-sharing websites that promote various free programs. BeautyBrilliant might look like a legitimate program that displays unique beauty tips or the best deals related to makeup products.
How does BeautyBrilliant work?
As you open BeautyBrilliant it will display its logo on the top of the window and the rest of the displayed information will be taken from toseventeen.com/beauty/. This website contains makeup-related articles. So from the first look, this program looks useless as it does not contain any unique material, you can see the same articles on the Internet without this program. Furthermore, the application will open a new Internet Explorer window on its own. Consequently, it will open all kinds of annoying sponsored links that will contain sales and other shopping offers. These shopping offers might come from unreliable third party websites, and if you enter them, there is a possibility that your computer could get infected with viruses, worms, and so on. Moreover, as BeautyBrilliant settles on your PC, it creates the following Registry entries:• HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\DOMStorage\www.BeautyBrilliant.com
• HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\DOMStorage\BeautyBrilliant.com
The first two keys are created in Dom Storage that is usually compared to HTTP cookies as it allows collecting browsing information, but it is specific to Internet Explorer. As a result, you can be sure that it will collect your browsing information that might contain your search keywords, entered pages, clicked ads, etc. This information might seem not that important, but it allows to understand what products and services might be interesting to you. By doing so, BeautyBrilliant can display targeted ads for you so that you would be more tempted to click on them. One might wonder why would they go through such trouble and for what gain? The answer is quite simple; it is all done for money as BeautyBrilliant creators are paid for advertising particular sites. However, you get nothing, but an annoying program, that can cause damage to your system if you leave it unattended.
