What is Best Ziper?

Best Ziper is a supposedly legitimate file archiving application. However, we have classified it as a potentially unwanted program and suggest removing it because it is not as useful as you might think. Our cyber security experts at have concluded that this particular application was designed to launch other programs that show commercial advertisements on your web browser while you browse the Internet.

Where does Best Ziper come from?

We have no information on the company that developed Best Ziper because it does not have a website. Furthermore, the sample we have tested was not digitally signed by any company. Therefore, it only goes to show that this program comes from an unknown, probably shady developer that does not want to face the backlash and criticism for the poor quality of this program and the fact that it can show ads.

As far as its distribution methods are concerned, our researchers have received information that this program is being distributed using third-party software installers. The programs it is likely to be bundled with include are browser hijackers from the ELEX family, Traffic Exchange, YoutubeAdblocker, and several others. Indeed, it is possible that this program is bundled with third-party applications with malicious software installers that might be set to install this program on your computer without your knowledge or consent. Cyber security experts think that bundles that feature Best Ziper are likely to be distributed on questionable, lesser-known software distributing websites or via advertisements shown on other shady ads that link users to their download page. Therefore, when installing software, you should select advanced or custom installation settings and uncheck the installation of Best Ziper and similarly unreliable programs.

How does Best Ziper work?

The primary reason we regard this program as potentially unwanted in because its main purpose is to show you commercial advertisements. However, officially, this program is supposed to be a file archive. Nevertheless, we do not think that it can provide you with a reliable service, although it uses an open source 7zip engine to open file archives. This program is simplistic, and it is clear that not a lot of work was put into it. It has an Open, Delete, Rename, Extract, and Compress functions, but it is incapable of performing complex tasks. Furthermore, we think that it cannot support a lot of archiving formats like legitimate file archives can.

Our malware analysts have concluded that this program was set to show annoying pop-up ads on your web browser. Testing has shown that this program will redirect you to[id] that is set to display advertisements for adware, surveys, and sites featuring adult content. Our researchers have concluded that this program can modify the Host file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts). The program adds values to the host file that block access to certain websites. The list of blocked websites includes the following:

This program will commonly redirect you to a site that says that you need to update JAVA but download and install potentially unwanted programs instead such as media players and browser extensions. Due to the fact that Best Ziper might subject you to unreliable, potentially malicious content via its advertisements, we recommend that you remove it from your computer as soon as the opportunity arises.
