Remove Ads by "Side Plaza"Side Plaza is a web browser ad-injector that installs as a browser extension in Google Chrome or an plugin in Firefox, IE and other browsers with the primary objective of injecting ads into others' sites, without permission from those sites. These ads take the form of banners, text-links, coupons and other intrusive advertising methods. Ad injection is a technique by which ads are inserted in webpages without getting the permission of site owners or paying them. Ads are inserted on top of those that already appear, making the original ads impossible to see and make your browsing experience painful. Side Plaza injected ads can also replace other ads entirely, or appear on pages that weren’t supposed to include ads at all.
Side Plaza ad injection is more than just an annoyance. It also represents a security hazard for browsers and your privacy. In order to inject adverts into a website, the Side Plaza ad injector typically has to break the encryption used to deliver the page safely or intercept the traffic delivered to your browser in order to understand it and ultimately modify it before rendering. In doing so, it opens you up to having your connection hijacked if any third party can insert themselves in the middle of their communications, easy enough to do if surfing on an open wireless network in a coffee shop or airport.
Ad-injectors such as Side Plaza are malicious applications that arrive thanks to unwanted downloads on infected websites or installed with online games or other internet-driven applications as well as software bundles. Side Plaza is distributed by a network of affiliates that work to drive as many installs as possible via tactics like: marketing, bundling applications with popular downloads, outright malware distribution, and large social advertising campaigns.
