Remove Ads by "Delilah"

The ByteFence Anti-Malware research team has determined that Delilah is a web browser ad-injector. These so-called "ad-injectors" manipulate your browser(s), for example to inject advertisements in the underlying web page or change your startpage or searchscopes, so that the affected browser visits their site or one of their choice. The main purpose of the Delilah adware is to inject new ads in the web page you are browsing. These ads are in the form of banners, popups, text-links, and coupons.

What is an Delilah Ad-injection?

Ad injectors such as Delilah are programs that insert new ads, or replace existing ones, into the pages you visit while browsing the web. It injects any kind of advert or other content (e.g. Google AdSense, Amazon Associates, ClickBank, TradeDoubler, etc) into the existing content of the web pages that you are currently browsing through a web browser extension or addon. Ad injectors’ businesses are built on a tangled web of different players in the online advertising economy. This complexity has made it difficult for the industry to understand this issue and help fix it.

It all starts with software that infects your browser. Delilah 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. Affiliates are paid a commission whenever a user clicks on an injected ad. Delilah sources their ads from businesses that provide ‘injection libraries’. These companies manage advertising relationships with a handful of ad networks and shopping programs and decide which ads to display to users. Whenever a user clicks on an ad or purchases a product, these companies make a profit. These ads originate from ad networks that translate unwanted software installations into profit.

Because of the dangers present by ad-injectors, we strongly recommend you remove Delilah using anti-malware or antivirus software such as ByteFence.
