How does Raven Point Attachment work?

During its installation, the threat should create a couple of folders in the %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions and %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions directories. The folders should be titled according to the add-on's unique ID number, which is amodnjbmoaageifpnenfjcbfhaailpic. When Raven Point Attachment was still in the Chrome Web Store, users were able to find it with this ID number. Despite this, we think the application could still be distributed via doubtful P2P file-sharing networks, suspicious pop-up ads, and so on.

Furthermore, according to our researchers, the browser hijacker could try to hide from the user after it is added to Google Chrome. Apparently, the tool’s icon that is supposed to be placed on the browser’s top-right corner is a simple gray square with no logo or picture. Thus, some users might think it is a blank space and not notice any changes at all. The only way to see it is Raven Point Attachment is to click this icon. Nonetheless, the user may realize there is an unreliable software on the system even without noticing the extension’s presence. That is because the affected browser could start loading search results only with Yahoo when you are searching the Internet. For example, even if you are using Google or any other search engine besides Yahoo, with the browser hijacker’s help you might still end up on search.yahoo.com. Also, in between the keyword’s submission and results being displayed the user’s search quarries could travel through clever-find.com and blpsearch.com/search?sid=726&aid=163&src=hmp&p=fghhfg.

Our specialists suggest the redirection through the mentioned websites might be initiated to display more advertising content with the results. Such ads would most likely belong to the browser hijacker’s associates. In such case, we have to warn you that there might be no guarantees the promoted sites, products, or services will not be potentially harmful. For instance, some of the shown advertisements could lead to scam web pages, offer fake updates or malicious software installers, threats similar to Raven Point Attachment, etc.
