Note that many websites have their own advertising, unrelated to adware.
SmartBrowser is controlled by smart-browser.com. In our studies it changes the default home page. It opens pop-up pornographic advertising. Examples included extremelybabes.com and extremelyamateurs.com, and redirects attempted access of other pornographic sites to these sites instead. (Caution: these sites may attempt to load premium-rate dialers.)
EULA grants right to change and redirect 404 (page not found traffic) to their "publicity page".
Can open pop-ups or redirect the browser to a different page when a targeted URL is visited.
EULA demonstrates notable security risks.
