Razor Web virus
Razor Web virus is a misused term commonly used to describe this potentially unwanted program (PUP) and adware. Even though Razor Web is not a computer virus this adware is still a realistic privacy threat and sign of a serious computer infection. Razor Web adware is primarily used to access a PC without user knowledge, collect all your browsing data, and inject the webpages you visit with a wide variety of deceptive and intrusive advertisements. Razor Web ads can be delivered as generic banner and skyscrapers, in-text ads, pop-up ads, and pop-under ads. Ads by Razor Web are also served across multiple internet browsers including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Apple Safari.
One of the biggest issues with this adware is that it serves targeted advertisements and targeted advertisements can only be produced by the adware if it has obtained access to extensive user browsing data including your activities, the information you submit online, web searches, bookmarks, and browser history. This information is used to generate advertisements it feels users are most likely to click on.
The internet security community strongly recommends that you remove Razor Web if you find it installed onto your computer system or attached to your internet browser as a browser add-on or extension.
