Type: Adware
Also Known As: Seekmo Search
Created By: 180Solutions, Inc.
Danger Level: 4
Category Description: Program that delivers advertisements on your PC.

Note that many websites have their own advertising, unrelated to adware.

Adware is any software application in which advertising is displayed while the program is running. The authors of these applications include additional code that delivers the ads, which can be viewed through pop-up windows or through a bar that appears on a computer screen and sometimes through text links or in integrated search results. Adware may or may not track personal information. It may also gather information anonymously or in aggregate only. Users should check the EULA and Privacy policy to ensure if the adware on their machines conforms to their standards.
Official Description: This search assistant from 180Solutions is the successor to 180 Search Assistant. It appears to be a rebranded version of their existing product. This is in the same way that nCase was to 180 Search Assistant. 180Solutions announced that this was to enforce some security on their affiliates who were abusing the software and pushing their product on customers.

This Adware keep tracks on user browsing activities and disply ads according to that.
Comment: This search assistant has been known to distribute large amounts of pop-up advertisements. Seekmo itself is a 'search based advertising application'. This means that it uses your search habits to show you advertisements you might be interested in.
