Full Name:
Type: Adware
Also Known As: Adware.GPSTool.BHO
Danger Level: 5
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.
Comment: GPSTool adds a BHO to Internet Explorer.
This application may show various types of advertising, not limited to pop-up ads. These include ads from auction sites, adult sites, etc.

An Interesting fact with this Adware is, this one looks for Keywords "Date/Sex/Adult" , on any open html page and hyperlinks it.
The appended url to this hyperlink is http://<Something>/cgi-bin/v30/ezlclk.fcgi? .

These are search pages with search keyword being "Date/Sex/Adult". This follows up by a wide range of popups ranging anything (most of the times popups like adult sites, casino sites, False malware scans etc).

When clicked on this hyperlink , it leads to lot of other popups.
