Videodrome Search is an ad-injector that installs as a browser extension 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. Videodrome Search injected ads can also replace other ads entirely, or appear on pages that weren’t supposed to include ads at all.
Ad-injectors such as Videodrome Search 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. Videodrome Search 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. The Videodrome Search ad injection process starts when a you download and installs a browser extension or software application that’s bundled with software that quietly injects unwanted ads into your browser. Software such as PDF converters or browser toolbars, for example, are often offered for free and monetized through deals developers make with Videodrome Search as well as other ad injectors, who shell out affiliate fees to software developers every time someone installs their software or clicks an injected ad.
Videodrome Search 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 Videodrome Search ad injector typically has to break the encryption used to deliver the page safely or intercept the traffic delivered to your browser in order 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.
