What is Better-fox-finder?
Better-fox-finder is a browser extension that our malware researchers identify as an advertisement-supported program. It is most likely that this application only affects the Mozilla Firefox browser, but if you have noticed it on other browsers, you certainly have to remove Better-fox-finder from these browsers as well. If you are not cautious, you might have to delete other unreliable programs from your PC as well. Better-fox-finder is not spread on its own, and Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers warn that the threat could be distributed using software bundles. Have you found other apps installed with this ad-supported program? Then remove them without hesitation. This report has been prepared to help you delete undesirable software from your operating system.
How does Better-fox-finder work?
As mentioned already, Better-fox-finder has been built using the Crossrider engine. Other ad-supported programs created on this engine include DownLite, PubAppBrowser, Shoppy-Up, and SuperPlusRadio. All of these apps are just as unreliable and misleading as Better-fox-finder, which is why we advise removing them as well. Of course, it is highly unlikely that these applications will be installed together; however, you can expect other adware, potentially unwanted programs, unreliable tracking cookies, and all other kinds of threats to be installed. If you do not delete these unreliable apps in time, your virtual security could be jeopardized. Unfortunately, this is the risk you are likely to face if you do not remove Better-fox-finder as well. This advertisement-supported program can display ads that work as security backdoors, and this is something that schemers could use to their advantage.
If you do not delete Better-fox-finder, the app will present ads according to your browsing history to increase chances of you clicking on these ads. Needless to say, you are likely to interact with the advertisements that are attractive to you personally, and this is why the developers of Better-fox-finder employ tracking cookies. We recommend deleting these cookies. You should not click on any ads, because they all hide links to third-party sites, so there is a great chance that you will end up on corrupted or misleading sites. This could be used to infiltrate more malware that will also require removal.
